Douglas Adams rocks

I picked up a second hand copy of 'Last Chance to See' today.

I read it two years ago and loved it. It's about a year of Adams' life where he and a zoologist named Mark Carwardine tore across the planet searching for endangered species and those who have devoted their lives to saving them.

For those poor souls out there unfamiliar with Douglas Adams, he's the guy that wrote 'The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy' which is a brilliant piece of comedic science fiction and quite possibly the funniest book I've ever read.

Being written by Adams, 'Last Chance to See' is by turns funny and heartbreaking and horrifying.
