Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

by Robert Pirsig

In Brief

A 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 it

This 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.
