  • The introduction does what it promises: it introduces.
  • It introduces us to an unimportant planet (Earth) with primitive people who are never happy (us).
  • Then it introduces us to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which is described as an amazing book that has sold a lot of copies. Why? 
  • Because it's cheaper than more reputable encyclopedias; and it has the words "Don't Panic" written on the front.
  • It also introduces us to a terrible, no good, very bad catastrophe. This book is the story of that catastrophe.
  • Finally, the introduction introduces us to a house, but don't get attached to the house.
