Zen & The Art of Motorcycle Mtce

Hi Veronica,

It does take a bit to get into. I found it was quite enlightning once I did. I found that the ability to take such a voyage inspires me to do so as well. But on an everyday basis, the philisophical questions and moral check points certainly resound deep within.

There comes a time when one looks for such a book of values. It suffices to know it's there. You'll know when the time is right.

that is almost the story of my life right now... just less insanity.

Great book, great way of seeing people, some people love the repair. I did a very similar ride with my dad back when I was young.

Ya me too. I put the 60's era of this book and all it's values and realize that in a small part the 21st century screen version seems to take on a "Wild Hogs" approach to the adventure. That's where I'm at. Want to meet good people, ride, explore, and bring meaning to the way we were and what's going on.

Hey guys,
I love this book. I'm glad you all find it powerful too. I agree that it is a bit long and hard to first get into. But I feel its really stuck with me more than most books.

Plus its kinda creepy.

I also really enjoy Motorcycle Diaries. Very different in some ways, but at the same time touches similar themes and is powerful.

Denis,

Which one? The original by Robert Pirsig or the second one from Mark Richardson?

Hi crooksie,

The one by Robert Pirsig. I also read the Mark Richardson "Zen & Now" version.
