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.

“It is filled with beauty. . .a finely made whole that seems to emanate from a very special grace.” -Baltimore Sun

“An unforgettable trip.” -Time

“Profoundly important...full of insights into our most perplexing contemporary dilemmas.” -New York Times

“A miracle . . . sparkles like an electric dream.” -The Village Voice
