Product Description


It has been forty years since Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance was first published. Since then, it’s become a modern—and influential—classic. “Zen” is, at its core, about our human and cultural relationships with technology. Part travelogue, part philosophic inquiry and part personal memoir, it is so multi-layered that for its fortieth anniversary, Mark Richardson re-traced the ride, on the same bike, and produced a thoughtful and powerfully enlightening look at the incredible life of the reclusive author, and at the kaleidoscope of elements which make up this extraordinarily complicated work. Here is the stunningly compelling human story behind and within this classic. An amazing, compelling book. By Mark Richardson. Softbound, 6.5"×9.3", 288 pp., no illus.

A Thoroughly Enjoyable Ride Back to the 70'sReview by Roadking
Mark Richardson has written a witty, insightful, and engrossing story of his re-tracing the route travelled by Pirsig and his son across America. Along the way he meets some of the original book's real characters, and the places which Pirsig visited, along with Richardson's own adventures and mishaps. More than a travelogue, this book explains the troubled life of Pirsig and to decipher Pirsig's impenetrable philosophy. It turns out few people ever read the whole of Pirsig's book, and fewer can claim to understand it. A worthwhile read. (Posted on 1/2/10)
