The extraordinary story of a man's quest for truth. It will change the way you think and feel about your life."The cycle you're working on is a cycle called 'yourself.'""The study of the art of motorcycle maintainence is really a study of the art of rationality itself. Working on a motorcycle, working well, caring, is to become part of a process, to achieve an inner peace of mind. The motorcycle is primarily a mental phenomenon." -- Robert M. Pirsig

0.0 Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values
This book would have better been titled Motorcycles, Science, Math, and Traveling in the West. I liked the motorcycles, I liked the traveling and I didn't mind SOME of the math, science and philosophy. Maybe it's just dated. IDK. I didn't complete it, so I'm not going to rate it. It will go back int...
