Robert Pirsig 1928-2017

Post by stagewex »

My Dad gave me "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" when I was in my 20's. I found it a complete bore, hard to read and I don't think I was able to get through the entire book at all. I think he bought for me thinking it was more of a shop manual which it sure ain't.
Later in life in my early 50's I picked it up again and really enjoyed it... "Ahh, I get it"!

His Obit is pretty interesting, a complicated and sometimes sad life:
