Booktopia Comments

Booktopia Book Guru says: A must for any bright young person looking for answers to the big questions. They won't find doctrine here, or any definitive answers, either, but they may just learn how ask questions and seek answers more effectively. And that's something.

Product Description

A book which speaks directly to the confusions and agonies of existence, detailing a personal, philosophical odyssey.

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance caused a sensation when it was first published in 1974. The story of the narrator, his son Chris and their month-long motorcycle odyssey from Minnesota to California profoundly affected an entire generation. Both personal and philosophical, this book is a compelling study of relationships, values, madness and, eventually, enlightenment.
