Nicholas Joll grew up in Hertfordshire, England. He has spent a lot of time studying philosophy and quite a lot of time teaching it. He likes to think that he has other interests too, though - and one of those other interests is reading non-philosophy. He combined these two interests by editing the book *Philosophy and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.* Further interests include cooking, pubbing, music and occasionally venturing to other countries.
On the Hitchhiker book:
- Samples of the book are available via my website and via Palgrave's website.
- I've been interviewed by an Irish radio station about the book! There's a recording here: box.com/HitchhikerPodcast
- The Guardian newspaper has a review. It's here: guardian.co.uk/books/2012/sep/04/philosophy-hitchhikers-guide-nicholas-joll-review?newsfeed=true
