Now in audiobook for the first time ever! Read by Simon Jones, the original “Arthur Dent,” and written by #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman, Don’t Panic is the definitive chronicle of all things Hitchhiker!

First published in 1986 and updated several times since, Don’t Panic is in an in-depth exploration of Douglas Adams’s cultural phenomenon The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – from its beginnings as a UK radio series, to its expansion into a wildly popular book trilogy, and onto incarnations in various media including stage, records, film, computer games, and even, um, tea towels. Don’t Panic was the first book by internationally bestselling author Neil Gaiman, written early in his writing career when he worked as a freelance journalist in his native England. Voiced by renowned actor Simon Jones – “Arthur Dent” himself – and with a new introduction written and read by Neil Gaiman, Don’t Panic: Douglas Adams & The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy audio edition is the ultimate version of this beloved work.

Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.

Give a good insight into the writing of the books and the development of all the story’s mediums. It is perhaps too long as an audio book but I can see why it was written this way in a printed version. Simon Jones is fantastic as the narrator and I doubt I would have had the interest to get through the whole book without him. I read the books and listened to the records years ago and the book has reminded me how much I enjoyed the stories and I’ll now go back and read them again.
