First published in 1974, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is as fresh and compelling as it was decades ago. Touted as “one of the most important and influential books written in the past half-century,” this book is a must-read for anyone interested in the deepest and most basic of philosophical questions, such as how to be happy in life?

Penned by Robert M. Pirsig, a highly intelligent and educated man that graduated high-school at the age of 14, this powerful book is constructed around a motorcycle trip across America’s Northwest, undertaken by Pirsig and his young son. Their journey is interspersed with short breaks for taking care of the business of life, and, in addition to that, are the steps needed to maintaining your motorcycle.

Described by many as one of those “life-changing books,” this is an examination of philosophy, thinking, quality and value that you’ll want to read again and again.
