The book is already on my list of all time favorites, I have had the printed version for nearly 20 years. The Audio version is better in that I can now hear Mr Adams (may he Rest in Interconnectedness of Everything) characters as he heard them. Plus it is very convenient when I need to get my dose of Dirk and Douglas, and I can't actually sit and read (at work I work with my hands, so the brain and ears are free to wonder as they would like, not unlike Dirk.
Just the whole silly look at the foibles of the human race and how we can sometimes actually get a better picture by looking askance at ourselves.
Yes, I also have (of course) H2G2 (Hitchhikers Guide). It is the same quality, good.
When Dirk tells Richard about how he started the "agency", looking for "Bernice" the Cat who got fed up being gassed. And the "Charge for Saving the world".
I listen to this more than any other book. Too often I have felt more like Arthur Dents Towel in life. I recall this was a staple even on tape, back in the 80's when I was still doing conventions. I also like that it was Stephen Fry who did this one.
The mice. It was just too damn funny that they are really 'pan dimensional beings doing experiments on us.
Yes. But then I never actually read the book all in one sitting either, I couldn't; laughing for that long you have to take a break.
Yes, the book is clearly spoken, at a pace that doesn't leave you scratching your head at a "what did he say?" pace. It was spoken in that friendly, down home fashion, and so the stories kept you thinking ahead. And you find Oops, better listen up cause you just went past the point of the story, it didn't always end like you might think.
No actual Characters, these are real people. and real situations; But the MacDonald Bros Story is the best.
Yes, when I heard him speak about "don't think your the leader, just cause you have a title." I have kept that story close to heart.
I have the Hard bound copy, the Kindle version, and this version, making it a complete set for me. I have been using it to great success of late, getting people to realize "Managers manage things; Leaders build more leaders", and this has nothing to do with the Title.
