Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
by Robert Pirsig
In BriefA road trip from Minnesota to California becomes Pirsig's reluctant journey into his own troubled past. This defining philosophical exploration is about the fundamental divisions in the way we think, about the attitudes of the Zen-trained mind, and of course a little bit about motorcycles.
Why you should read itThis enthralling book really is for everyone, even those without the slightest interest in engines or gearboxes. Its subject is neither Zen nor motorcycle maintenance, but something much more universal, essential and human: the way we think.
