There are some books that will have you applauding the author for piece of magical work - and also widen your thinking horizons significantly. This is one such book. The deeply philosophical content is layered seamlessly into the story - a long motorcycle ride the author undertakes with his son and a few friends. Lots of "aha" moments in between - why do we love new songs only to have the craving die off after a while, when we say something has quality - what do we really mean, what does caring mean - a lot of things. Its a riveting read and I'd recommend many reads (with some time for reflecting on the concepts before continuing). You will certainly begin to see the world afresh.
