Introduction Why MostlyHarmless? It's the description of Earth in "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams. After extensive research by Ford Prefect (from Betelgeuse) the entry in the Guide was updated from "Harmless" to "Mostly Harmless". It's a good summary of how I view the Earth we inhabit - an antidote to unjustified alarmism.
Favorite Books All Douglas Adams' work (inevitably!), "1066 and All That: A Memorable History of England, comprising all the parts you can remember, including 103 Good Things, 5 Bad Kings and 2 Genuine Dates" by Sellar & Yeatman (1930), "Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog)" by Jerome Klapka Jerome (1989)
