he Salmon of Doubt: Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time is a posthumous collection of previously unpublished material by Douglas Adams. It consists largely of essays about technology and life experiences, but its major selling point is the inclusion of the incomplete novel on which Adams was working at the time of his death, The Salmon of Doubt (from which the collection gets its title, a reference to the Celtic myth of the Salmon of Wisdom). English editions of the book were published in the USA and UK in May 2002, exactly one year after the author's death.

Douglas Adams: The Salmon of Doubt

Teljesen más hangvételű könyv, mint az előzőek, érthető okokból. Csak azok számára ajánlom, akik többet szeretnének megtudni Adamsről, mert a nagy része inkább őt mutatja be a rövid írásain keresztül. Nagyon sajnálatos, hogy ilyen korán távozott közülünk és hogy sosem volt esélye befejezni a Kétség Lazacát. Kétségkívül remekmű lett volna.

He was constantly reminded of how startlingly different a place the world was when viewed from a point only three feet to the left.

I’ve come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that’s invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

God used to be the best explanation we’d got, and we’ve now got vastly better ones. God is no longer an explanation of anything, but has instead become something that would itself need an insurmountable amount of explaining.
