The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy by Douglas Adams - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:

Earth's demolition destroys the question.
The mice are angry.

My favorite Douglas Adams quote from the book:

"Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?"

Questions I pondered while reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:

How many roads must a man walk down?

Why do we look for hidden meanings in everything?

My review of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:

I love the answer 42.

I love it, even more, when someone else recognizes the answer.

Geeks united forever.
