Robinson in Space is a visual, satirical record of a journey made by a fictional character called Robinson, narrated by his traveling companion and researcher, through the increasingly unknown space of present-day England. Robinson quotes Oscar Wilde: "It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances. The true mystery of the world is the visible not the invisible. . ." His assumptions about economic failure, especially in manufacturing industry, are gradually challenged by the discovery of an industrial economy that employs few people but still generates most of the wealth of the fifth-largest economy in the world.

The book juxtaposes the narrative and over 200 intriguing, strange-yet-familiar images from the film to take the reader on a fascinating journey through the landscapes of present-day England.

What you will find that follows this introduction is a set of rules and information that you can adhere to in your Dominant / submissive relationship or not. If you purchased the actual book rather then the E-book, you will find each page has the rule listed and a check box for "Yes" and "No" so that you may start off slowly implementing new rules when either an infraction of that particular rule is encountered and needs to be dealt with by agreeing to adhere to the new rule, or say when the submissive has to many minor infractions and because of that a new rule needs be added to the submissive list of rules they will need to adhere to. Kind of like you do something bad then you have a new rule in your life. It can be quite a lot of fun, just sitting down and reading a rule and each time a new rule is added the submissive life can change dramatically because of it.
How you implement the rules or not, is entirely up to you, these are just guidelines, things that we have found have been fun and work well in our relationship, feel free to alter or change a rule to fit your own situations.We have even included a number of pages for you to add your own specific rules that you may have that is not included in our own rules. What you have in the end is pretty much an owner's manual for your submissive husband, what better fun can there be for a submissive husband to know that in his house is a book of rules that he must follow else he may be punished by his Dominant wife. I personally like to leave the book lying around the house just so my submissive husband can see it and know that it is there.

These five stories are taken from tape recordings that I made many years ago. They are about two bungling men that set out to trap or capture animals for zoos.
Ralph, however, is the one that Fred sends in to do the dirty work of capturing the dangerous wild animals. The first story is titled "Psffttt!" It is about the capture of a bobcat that has climbed a tree. Ralph is then elected to climb the tree and lasso the bobcat. It turns out that it is a female with young.
Both end up attacking Ralph. The second story is called "The Bear Hunt.". Fred sends Ralph in a cave to make sure the hibernating bear is a male.
When he lifts its leg to make sure, the bear awakens. It is not a pretty sight as the angry bear takes out his anger on poor Ralph..
The third adventure is "The Snake Hunt." The two men are in South America along the Amazon River. After finding a world record anaconda, Ralph is sent in to capture it bare handed.
"The Lion Hunt" is the fourth story and Ralph and Fred go to Africa this time to dart a black-maned lion. Ralph is again sent to poke the largest male lion so he will run under a tree where Fred will dart it. Things do not go as planned, however, and Ralph must suffer because of Fred's mistakes. The last story is "The Javelina Pig Hunt." This time, poor Ralph is the bait as he is placed in a hole where a cannon net will be shot over him and a herd of wild peccaries. You can only imagine what happens when Ralph suddenly finds himself under the net with several angry and frightened pigs. To make matters worse, there is a huge wild boar with the herd of peccaries.
