PHILOSOPHY / Zen

This lyrical, evocative, thought-provoking journal of a man's quest for truth -- and for himself -- has touched and changed an entire generation.

At its heart, the story is all too simple: a man and his son take a lengthy motorcycle trip through America. But this is not a simple trip at all, for around every corner, through mountain and desert, wind and rain, and searing heat and biting cold, their pilgrimage leads them to new vistas of self-discovery and renewal.

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is an elemental work that had helped to shape and define the past twenty-five years of American culture. This special audio edition presents this adventure in an exciting new way -- for the millions who have already taken this journey and want to travel these roads again, and for the many more who will discover for the first time the wonders and challenges of a journey that will change the way they think and feel about their lives.

Robert M. Pirsig (1928-2017) studied chemistry, philosophy, and journalism at the University of Minnesota and attended Benares Hindu University in India, where he studied Oriental philosophy. His 1974 bookZen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values was an immediate phenomenon which continues to be bestseller.

Michael Kramer received an Earphones Award for his narration of the Kent Family series by John Jakes and for Alan Fulsom'sThe Day After Tomorrow. He has also read for Robert Jordan's epic Wheel of Time fantasy-adventure series. His work includes theater acting and recording books for the Library of Congress's Talking Books program.

“Profoundly important ... intellectual entertainment of the highest order.” —The New York Times

“It lodges in the mind as few recent novels have...The book is inspired, original...the narrative tact, the perfect economy of effect defy criticism. The analogies with Moby Dick are patent. Robert Pirsig invites the prodigious comparison. What more can one say?” —The New Yorker

“Brave wanderings, high adventures, extraordinary risks... A horn of plenty.” —Los Angeles Times
