Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance – Robert M. Pirsig

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

Favorite Quote

We’re in such a hurry most of the time we never get much chance to talk. The result is a kind of endless day-to-day shallowness, a monotony that leaves a person wondering years later where all the time went and sorry that it’s all gone. – Page 7

The journey to reading the book

I remember I was reading through a “must read” list and this book was on it. I decided to completely avoid it because I have absolutely no desire to ride a motorcycle. I read most books on the list and finally came back to this one. I was a member of the website paperback swap and this came available so I decided to get it. I have this annoying habit of if I start a list I have to finish it even if I don’t like it.

It finally came in the mail and I made a decision to force myself to sit down and read the book. Joke was on me I couldn’t put it down. I read, and then I kept reading, and then I kept reading until it was finished. I have a bias to anything to do with personal growth and self-discovery and you will be hard pressed to find another book that fits those two categories better.

I can’t recommend this book any higher for everyone to read. It is a very engaging read that can keep your attention and keeps you coming for more. It is like holding a mirror to your soul and creates in you a desire to do some serious soul searching.
