This lyrical, evocative, thought-provoking journal of a man's quest for truth - and for himself - has touched and changed an entire generation, and is ready to reach out to a new one. At its heart, the story is all too simple: a man and his son take a motorcycle trip across 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 has helped to shape and define the past 25-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 story that will change the way they think and feel about their lives. Unique to audio, this edition features a new introduction by the author. Download and start listening now!

    " I give up. I rarely stop reading books, even bad ones, but after months of struggling to get through this "classic" and finding myself only a third of the way through, I have decided to let myself off the hook. This is an incredibly boring and rambling read. "

    " As the author indicates himself in the book, because he is not a novelist the book lacks elements of a novel like character building and in my opinion a purposeful structure. The way the narrative switches between his "Chautauqua" and the parts that follow him through his motorcycle journey is obviously designed so that the reader is occupied with some sort of plot line while he expounds his elaborate and ultimately hollow theory of metaphysics, which at first seems like it may become clearer as one reads on but instead becomes more and more repetitive and nonsensical to the point where at around page 293 one looks for reviews online to confirm one's suspicion that one has been taken for a mug. His theory even if it is of any value could have been summed up in 2 pages and as for the rest of the plot, it's boring, superfluous and written by a pretentious self-centred pseudo-philosopher trying too hard to become the next big thing since sliced bread and sell you something you don't need. Don't be fooled by the "cool" sounding title, this book will not enlighten, inspire or even entertain. Utter tripe. "

    " Not quite the book of philosophy and values that I thought. It plodded along and was hard to follow for me at times. "
