  • Few books transform a generation and then establish themselves as touchstones for the generations that follow. Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is one such book.

It continues to inspire millions.
  • 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 on 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.

I think I'm the only person on the planet who hated this book. Loved the title, thought the book was really overrated.
Lol, no, that's a common misconception. This book is about the Cronus Zen gaming controller adapter.
I'm with you. I was into it at first, but then I thought it kind of went up its own butt, so to speak, and started obsessing over trivialities.

Is this applicable to modern motorcycles or only classic models?

We all waste so much time on trivialities and money on frivolous things.
This book is a very worthwhile investment of a few hours. At $1.99 - it is cheaper than a cone of ice cream or a parking slot.

If you spend time reading this book, I guarantee that you would learn something to make your life better.

I own this book in hardcover but at this price bought additional ebooks for friends and family.

One of my favorites. Buy it if you haven't read it! Great mixture of story and philosophy.

I loved the story and surface-level philosophy of quality, but half way through it gets very deep into quality and I enjoy it less than the first half. Still a great read!

Ah, I see you are a man of culture as well. That's one of my favorite adapters, I had no idea there was a book about it.

The fact that it was written in 1974, forty years before the adapter even existed, makes the book all the more impressive. 😉
