5.0 von 5 Sternen The Joy of Engagement!
Before reviewing Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, let me mention that most people will either love or hate the book. Few will be indifferent.

Those who will love the book will include those who enjoy philosophy, especially those who are well read in that subject; people who ride and maintain their own motorcycles; readers who are interested in...

1.0 von 5 Sternen "actually, Water is not perfect"
this book tries so blatantly to be metaphorical that it really ends up being quite shallow. The ironic thing is that if one has this opinion, dissenters simply say "you merely don't understand it". This angers me. I have spent much time studying Zen, and can find no correlations between this book and actual Zen tenents. If you disagree, please email me with...

1.0 von 5 Sternen Typical Boomer Indulgence, 16. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I thought this book would be interesting and thoughtful but instead it seems to be more of the usual meism that permeated the Boomer generation and has so negatively affected my own generation. No wonder we're all screwed up!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Rewarding, if invested in, 7. August 2006
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values (Taschenbuch)
Taking the reader on a journey of how one unconventional and intelligent person grapples with how to work out what's really important in life, this book isn't the most accessible but rewards readers that invest plenty of time and thought.

"Zen and the Art..." spent over a year on my shelf, unread, until I had enough spare time for it. The strategy certainly paid off. This is not the sort of book you just read through to enjoy the ride; I found it necessary to put in breaks of a day or so to be able to digest the parts which seemed important. As such, it turned into one of the most rewarding reads I've ever experienced.

There is a general narrative which makes the philosophy more accessible, allowing the reader breaks in between the more in-depth material, as well as setting an everyday context for the abstract ideas.

I can wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who has a tendency to "use their head" as much as possible and avoid other (seemingly) less reliable, more subjective sources for orientation. Anyone with a technical and/or scientific background should roughly "qualify"(!), and it does help to have already read material on philosophy, such as Bertrand Russell's History of Western Philosophy in my case.

5.0 von 5 Sternen On Quality:, 25. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
The fact that more than 120 people have spent their time sitting at their computers and reviewing the 'good' and 'bad' of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance not only proves that the book's philosophical meandering about "Quality" - which eventually leads to several different points about the essence of experience and life itself is fairly right-on, but that, as in the book itself, Quality is dictated (when intellectually reviewed) by a person's background and preconceptions. This unique viewpoint as well as the grace with which it is reached (motorcycle trips, mountain hikes...et cetera) is enough to make it a worthwhile and brilliant read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Where's the zen?, 14. Januar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
First, the book is well written. It is well written trash, but nevertheless the prose is magnificent. Yet my years of studying zen reveal no such correlation between this individual who has learned to not try is the best way to not succeed (ref. the story of climbing the mountain with his son). Unfortunately, he is trying to pass this message on to others. If the story was written with less talent one could see the flaws inherent in this philosophy. It is as if one desired Marilyn Monroe's lifestyle because she brought such penache to the screen. In the end the only real loser is one who quits, and that seems to be lost on Pirsig.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Bad paper quality, 8. Januar 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values (Taschenbuch)
The paper quality was very bad and cheap. I didn't enjoy reading it so much. The book itself is a great book. I recommend everyone to read it

5.0 von 5 Sternen A SLIGHT BREEZE AT SUNRISE, 27. Juli 2000
Through his writting, Mr. Pirsig shows what wonderous joy is possible to have in one's life. As a long time and long distance rider I really appreciate this book.
Another book which I trully appreciate is by Ariel & Shya Kane called "WORKING ON YOURSELF DOESN'T WORK." The Kanes' book is a classic one that guides you in creating an easy, fulfilling and rich life.
The Kanes' also have some great audio tapes available such as Magical Relationships, which bring the listener right into one of their inspiring and fun seminars.
