The Books on My Booklist

THE BOOKS ON MY BOOKLIST – Zen & the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (Robert M Pirsig)


Read for Literature of Spirituality.

A semi-autobiographical journey, a philosophical text,  a struggle to get over a previous breakdown, or the account of a descent back into madness?  Or all of the above?

ZAMM can be a life changing read if you come to it in the right mind.  As a prescribed text, on a course with a number of other spiritual texts it can be hard going.  I recall the reaction of many of the other students was to the perceived arrogance of the narrator.  And, sure, you can see that there, but really, that what a philosophical text needs to do.

As the book says: “Sometimes it’s a little better to travel than to arrive”.
