1: A book.

Not only is it a wholly remarkable book, it is also a highly successful one- more popular than the Celestial Home Care Omnibus, better selling than Fifty-Three More Things to Do in Zero Gravity, and more controversial than Oolon Colluphid's trilogy of philospophical blockbusters, Where God Went Wrong, Some More of God's Greatest Mistakes, and Who Is This God Person Anyway?

In many of the more relaxed civilizations on the Outer Eastern Rim of the Galaxy, the Hitchhiker's Guide has already supplanted the great Encyclopedia Galatica as the standard repository of all knowledge and wisdom, for though it has many omissions and contains much that is apocryhal, or at least wildly inaccurate, it scores over the older, more pedestrian work in two important respects.

First, it is slightly cheaper; and second, it has the words Don't Panic inscribed in large friendly letters on its cover.

2: Also a book, written by Douglas Adams, which centers on the book that the book takes its name from. Not to say that the book deals entirely with the book, but that the book is, in the book, a central part. Of the book, that is.

The best triligy (containing 5 books) in the world. IT recently became a major motion picture which totally butchred and americanized the plot , but still was decent. By the kurt vonaget of the 20th century. Totally rocks , a great read. amazing

All in all, the best book ever. There are four more books in the series that nobody seems to know about. However, it doesn't really matter because the story sort of loses control of it self toward the end and I assume that is why all of the characters die at once, very anticlimactically.
According to the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, 42 is the answer to the question of life, the universe, and everything.
