Douglas Adams: Parrots, the Universe, and Everything

Immerse yourself into the mind of Douglas Adams. The author The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy graced the world with one final appearance just days before his tragic death from a heart attack on May 11, 2001. Delivered at the University of California, Santa Barbara, Adams discusses his own personal favorite of his books Last Chance to See about his travels to faraway lands to see firsthand many endangered animal species such as the Aye-aye lemur of Madagascar, the Komodo dragon on the island of Komodo in Indonesia, and the Yangtze River Dolphin in China. With his own hilarious insights he describes these animals and his wild travels to observe them. He ends the talk by urging humanity to envision their place in the world in a way that can sustain all species including humans. This talk is available through YouTube on streaming video and video download.

Born in Cambridge in 1952, Douglas Adams is the beloved creator of The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy and its various incarnations as books, audio progams, radio plays, and most recently a movie. Hitchhiker's phenomenal, award-winning success led to a series of sequels, most of which having been adapted successfully into other mediums in their own right. Known for his incisive wit, and a particularly absurdist sense of humor, Adams has culled a massive audience of devoted followers over the years.

Unforunately Adams passed away in 2001, but his fanbase and their devotion has only grown since then, and shows no sign of ending anytime soon. LearnOutLoud.com is happy to present Adam's work on audio (most of which is read by the author) with the hope that you will find the same joy that millions of people have derived from Adams' work over the last 25 years. So come aboard, have some fun and always remember: Don't Panic!
