      A collection of essays on how The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy has impacted on society.Some the essays by both Mike Byrne and Cory Doctrorow for instance point out that subsequent advances in technology were predicted within the pages of Adams s text the design flaws that seem so obvious that keep getting built into electronic goods that were a mainstay of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation and that the actual Guide is in fact a fictional version of are the basis of these two.Others are surr [...]

      The Hitchhiker s Guide books have been a favorite of mine since the days when, to paraphrase the late Douglas Adams, we still thought digital watches were a pretty neat idea I laughed almost as hard reading these essays as I do whenever I re read the books themselves I can t recommend Smart Pop Books enough smartpopbooks They have intelligent analysis of just about every pop culture phenomenon out there, from Harry Potter to True Blood, and this collection maintains their high standards It even [...]

    6. Nuno on said:

      The essays in the book range from serious for a given value of seriousness explorations of some of the themes running through the H2G2 trilogy of five and the trends those themes expose, to full fledged conspiracy theories about events in our lives which the plots of the books supposedly uncover.A good read for a fan of the series Almost completely opaque to anyone else.
