    Review quote
    "Profoundly important...full of insights into our most perplexing contemporary dilemmas" New York Times "Mr Pirsig has written a work of great, perhaps urgent, importance... Read this book" Observer "The book is inspired, original...the narrative tact, the perfect economy of effect defy criticism. The analogies with Moby Dick are patent" New Yorker "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is an unforgettable trip" Time "Disturbing, deeply moving, full of insights...this is a wonderful book" Times Literary Supplement
    Review text
    A remarkable classic, at last back in print. It is not (of course) about motorcycle maintenance. It is a guide, a life support system, a novel, a philosophical treatise, an attempt to analyse life, an examination of the nature of space and time... all things to most men (and women). The archetypal mind-stretching book. (Kirkus UK)
