Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance Robert M. Pirsig

An Inquiry Into Values

What a book. I finished reading it five minutes ago, so I'm still reeling. Trying to unpack it all I suppose. It begins with a simple enough journey on a touring-motorcycle with Robert and his son Chris. It's very raw, real and relatable, but this is only an introduction. The full force of the backstory soon unravels and we slowly learn what's at stake. The philosophical questioning is complimented by the progress they make on their vacation, and eventually you realize that there was never a separation between the philosophy and the journey at all. Though some parts require a little background knowledge of philosophy, I would recommend this book to anyone.
