Summary (From the publisher):

Written when landing on the moon was still a dream, made into one of the most influential films of our century, brilliant, compulsive, prophetic, 2001: A Space Odyssey tackles the enduring theme of man's place in the universe.

On the moon an enigma is uncovered. So great are the implications that, for the first time, men are sent out deep into the solar system. But, before they can reach their destination, things begin to go wrong. Horribly wrong.

Based on the screenplay by Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke, which was in turn inspired by Clarke's short story "The Sentinel".
