One of the most important and influential books written in the past half-century, Robert M. Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is a powerful, moving, and penetrating examination of how we live . . . and a breathtaking meditation on how to live better. Here is the book that transformed a generation: an unforgettable narration of a summer motorcycle trip across America's Northwest, undertaken by a father and his young son. A story of love and fear -- of growth, discovery, and acceptance -- that becomes a profound personal and philosophical odyssey into life's fundamental questions, this uniquely exhilarating modern classic is both touching and transcendent, resonant with the myriad confusions of existence . . . and the small, essential triumphs that propel us forward.
"Profoundly important...full of insights into our most perplexing contemporary dilemmas."--New York Times
This is one of the best introduction to philosophy books ever written. Pirsig weaves a fascinating tale of self discovery and destruction, with basic concepts of philosophical inquiry into 'quality' and 'beauty'.
He also presents an interesting insight into teaching linguistics and philosophy to a young, college class.
Finally, his motorcycle trip across the midwest, the Rocky Mountains, and down the Pacific coast of Northern California is accurate and timely.
