Review: Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values

User Review  - Derek - Goodreads

The philosophic values can get carried away and at most parts of the book, exhaustive. I enjoyed the plot of the book, and the travelogues as well. It took me about 3 months to finish this book with ... Read full review

User Review  - Mark Delaplane - Goodreads

The narration on quality was interesting but overall I found the book to be somewhat disjointed. I liked the approach of relating quality to motorcycle maintenance. Overall it was tedious but there sere some jewels. Read full review

Review: Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values

User Review  - Gregory - Goodreads

For me this did not live up to its hype. I may have needed to read more philosophy for it to have done so. I also read more fiction today and genre fiction. I think I am more interested in easy entertainment than more introspection. Read full review

User Review  - Annie cobb - Goodreads

The first half is a great narrative. And then so much about the nature of truth, beauty, blah blah blah, and I wished he'd get off the Zen and back to cylinder heads. Read full review

Review: Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values

User Review  - Cate - Goodreads

Ultimately, I found this book a little disappointing. Having never been bitten by the 'travel bug', road-trip stories are a little lost on me at the best of times; but the esoteric thinness of plot that failed to live up to its promise to deepen left me wanting more. Read full review

User Review  - Shanna Covey - Goodreads

It took effort and discipline for me to get through it. I do agree that to advance in a spiritual journey, we must consider the role that our western "rational mind" plays in inhibiting us from seeing and connecting to what lies beyond those confines. Read full review
