Contrary to popular "just another boring philosophy book" opinion, this book contains a beautiful, thought-provoking story and the most delicate father/son relationship literature can provide. To read, you must dedicate yourself to reading a passage multiple times before advancing through the book. Although Robert Pirsig's autobiography is not for everyone, those who enjoy intellectual and emotional journeys will hopefully understand why this book is as popular as it is.
