Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
An Inquiry into Values
Robert M. Pirsig
What follows is based on actual occurrences. Although much has been changed
for rhetorical purposes, it must be regarded in its essence as fact.
However, it should in no way be associated with that great body of
factual information relating to orthodox Zen Buddhist practice.
It's not very factual on motorcycles, either.
And what is good, Phædrus,
And what is not good...
Need we ask anyone to tell us these things?
In my comments I make use of a paragraph numbering for reference purpose.
Text in bold are the parts of the book which deal with the trip as it
is happening. The non-bold text contains the thinking of the author.
Please, buy the book, if you do not have a copy of it, before
you go on reading these pages.
Read the rest.
