Description - Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values by Robert M. Pirsig

The modern epic that transformed a generation and continues to inspire millions -- a penetrating examination of how we live and how to live better.

A narration of a summer motorcycle trip undertaken by a father and his son, "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance "becomes a personal and philosophical odyssey into fundamental questions of how to live. The narrator's relationship with his son leads to a powerful self-reckoning, the craft of motorcycle maintenance leads to an austerely beautiful process for reconciling science, religion, and humanism. Resonant with the confusions of existence, this classic is a touching and transcendent book of life.

This new edition is updated with important typographical changes, a penetrating new introduction, and a Reader's Guide that includes an interview with Pirsig and letters and documents detailing how this extraordinary book came to be.
