Guidebook To Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance : an Inquiry Into Values (90 Edition)by Ronald L. Disanto
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
When Robert Pirsigs Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance was first published in 1974, it caused a literary sensation. An entire generation was profoundly affected by the story of the narrator, his son, Chris, and their month-long motorcycle odyssey from Minnesota to California. A combination of philosophical speculation and psychological tension, the book is a complex story of relationships, values, madness, and, eventually, enlightenment.
Ron Di Santo and Tom Steele have spent years investigating the background and underlying symbolism of Pirsigs work. Together, and with the approval of Robert Pirsig, they have written a fascinating reference/companion to the original.
Guidebook to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance serves as a metaphorical backpack of supplies for the readers journey through the original work. With the background material, insights, and perspectives the authors provide, Guidebook to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is destined to become required reading for new fans of the book as well as those who have returned to it over the years.
