Amazon Description:

It has been more than forty years since the publication of this classic science fiction novel that changed the way we look at the stars and ourselves. From the savannas of Africa at the dawn of mankind to the rings of Saturn as man adventures to the outer rim of our solar system, 2001: A Space Odyssey is a journey unlike any other. This allegory about humanity’s exploration of the universe, and the universe’s reaction to humanity, was the basis for director Stanley Kubrick’s immortal film, and lives on as a hallmark achievement in storytelling.
