Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance Summary


Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values by Robert M. Pirsig

An odyssey into life's challenging philosophical questions during an unforgettable summer motorcycle trip, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance transformed a generation and continues to inspire millions. One of the most influential books written in the past half-century, Robert Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is a powerful examination of how we live and a breathtaking meditation on how to live better. Following a father and his young son on a summer motorcycle trip across America's Northwest, to complete the Chautauqua spiritual journey, it is a story of love, fear, growth, discovery and acceptance. Both personal and philosophical, it is a compelling study of relationships, values, and eventually, enlightenment and meaning - resonant with the confusions and wonders of existence. Acclaimed as one of the most exciting books in the history of American letters, this modern epic became an instant bestseller upon publication in 1974. `The book is inspired, original...the analogies with Moby-Dick are patent' New Yorker `Mr Pirsig has written a work of great, perhaps urgent, importance... Read this book' Observer
