Book Reviews - Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert M. Pirsig

UK Kirkus Review » A remarkable classic, at last back in print. It is not (of course) about motorcycle maintenance, nor is it about a motorcycle journey (though, of course, it is, too). It is a guide, a life support system, a novel, a philosophical treatise, an attempt to analyse life, an examination of the nature of space and time... all things to most men (and women). This is perhaps the archetypal mind-stretching book: anyone who does not know it is missing something. (Kirkus UK)
