Why Books Are Sharks: Neil Gaiman Salutes Douglas Adams
The Douglas Adams Memorial Lecture is held every year to raise funds for Adams' favorite causes, Save the Rhino and the Environmental Investigation Agency. Hopefully I don't have to tell you who Adams wasand what he wrote. But you may not know about one of his lesser works, and in my opinion, one of the best popular science books ever written, Last Chance to See. If you haven't yet read it, you'll learn much about endangered species and find your heart being broken even as you laugh out loud.
