Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert M. Pirsig--Audio Excerpt

Listen to this audiobook excerpt from Robert M. Pirsig's book Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values. At its heart, the story is all too simple: a man and his son take a lengthy motorcycle trip through 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.
