Set on the stage of a cross-country journey between father and son, this philosophical autobiography illustrates the importance of truly valuing the art of an activity to find more meaning in life. His perspective on the rise of technology and the advancement of modern communication mixes both Eastern and Western ideals.


Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance was written in 1974, yet its philosophies have transcended time and technology to become one of the most popular digital books.


NOOK owners: go to “shop” and search for “Robert Pirsig” to download his first of many wonderful works.

I read Zen back in the 70's and now I'm excited to add it to my Nook library to read again.

Nice to have you with us, Nicole!  I read Zen when I was in college--and I'm not saying how long ago.  Great book!  Thanks for reminding me of it.

I have a bit of a strange relationship with this book--although I have enjoyed both of the times I read it. First time was in college. Second time was when a religious skeptic friend wanted us to read it together and discuss it--great fun!
