Product description

Review

“An unforgettable trip.” (Time)^“The book is inspired, original. . . . The analogies with Moby-Dick are patent.” (The New Yorker)^“Profoundly important...full of insights into our most perplexing contemporary dilemmas.” (New York Times)^“It is filled with beauty. . .a finely made whole that seems to emanate from a very special grace.” (Baltimore Sun)^“A miracle . . . sparkles like an electric dream.” (The Village Voice)

From the Back Cover

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.
