    Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance: an inquiry into values by Robert M Pirsig( Book )
    4 editions published between 1976 and 2004 in German and Portuguese and held by 3 libraries worldwide
    Acclaimed as one of the most exciting books in the history of American letters, this modern epic became an instant bestseller upon publication in 1974, transforming a generation and continuing to inspire millions. This 25th Anniversary Edition features a new introduction by the author, in which he reveals his original intention about the book's controversial ending, as well as important typographical changes reflecting his ideas. A narration of a summer motorcycle trip undertaken by a father and his son, the book becomes a personal and philosophical odyssey into fundamental questions of how to live. The narrator's relationship with his son leads to a powerful self-reckoning, the craft of motorcycle maintenance leads to an austerely beautiful process for reconciling science, religion, and humanism. Resonant with the confusions of existence, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is a touching and transcendent book of life.--From publisher description
