"This extraordinary work is being hailed as one of the most unique and exciting books in the history of American letters.  


An autobiography of the mind and body it is on one level the story of a summer month's motorcycle trip taken by the narrator and his eleven-year-old son, from their home in Minnesota to California.  


Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance speaks directly to the confusions and agonies of existance. In the intimate detailing of a real-life odyssey - personal, philisophical - Robert M. Pirsig has writen a touching, painful, and ultimately transcendent book of life."
