Product Description

Review



'...this is a well-researched, engagingly written and thoughtfully constructed book – one that manages to be imaginative without bursting the constraints imposed by current scientific thinking.' - Dr Paul Parsons, BBC Focus
 
'an extremely stimulating read.' - GF Willmetts, SF Crowsnest
 
Praise for The Science of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

'Adopting Adams' witty, punchy style, Hanlon's guide is a fun and vivid read. The science twinkles a little more than usual in such a zany setting...he tackles a wide range of cutting-edge topics with depth and authority.' Nature

'Good stuff...It's great the way Hanlon flits from one topic to another, weaving a web of scientific and technological ideas...his light style is ideally fitted to exploring the products of Douglas Adams' mind.'

Book Description

The story of the forthcoming ages told with scientific insight, informed speculation together with blatant surmise and conjecture enlivened by wit and whimsy.
