When Robert Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance was first published in 1974, it caused a literary sensation.

Lila


In this bestselling new book, his first in seventeen years, Robert M. Pirsig, author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, takes us on a poignant and passionate journey as mysterious and compelling as his first life-changing work. Instead of a motorcycle, a sailboat carries his philosopher-narrator Phaedrus down the Hudson River as winter closes in. Along the way he picks up a most unlikely traveling companion: a woman named Lila who in her desperate sexuality, hostility, and oncoming madness threatens to disrupt his life. In Lila Robert M. Pirsig has crafted a unique work of adventure and ideas that examines the essential issues of the nineties as his previous classic did the seventies.

Zen And Now


On the Trail of Robert Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Zen and Now is the story of a story that will appeal to the 5 million readers of the original and serve as an initiation to a whole new generation. Since its original publication in 1968, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values has touched whole generations of readers with its serious attempt to define “quality” in a world that seems indifferent to the responsibilities that quality brings. Mark Richardson expands that journey with an investigation of his own – to find the enigmatic author of Zen and the Art, ask him a few questions, and place his classic book in context. The result manages to be a biography of Pirsig himself – in the discovery of an unknown life of madness, murder and eventual resolution – and a splendid meditation on creativity and problem-solving, sanity and insanity.

Serve No Master


Bestselling author and lifestyle design expert Jonathan Green is finally ready to share the blueprint he used to escape the prison of poverty, debt, and office politics that still hold so many people imprisoned. He's not content with just sharing a few ideas -- instead this traveling renegade is taking aim at every roadblock that keeps people from achieving their goals. From "not enough money" to "lack of connections" to "not enough time" to "I just can't seem to do it", Jon's taking laser aim at all the excuses, and breaking things down into small, simple steps that anyone can take to become wealthier, better connected, more talented, and more free. This is a system designed to smash the chains and give you a better financial outlook and more free time to do what you love. He also covers how other people impact your bottom line -- whether that's in negotiations with potential customers and partners, making friends and family more accepting of your lifestyle, and making time for the things that really matter. --Publisher.

Zen In The Art Of Archery


2020 Reprint of the 1953 Edition. Exact facsimile of the original edition and not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Up to the time of publication, "this was the only book written by a westerner, and indeed the only book in a western language that describes the difficult path of learning Zen. A simple, vivid account of personal experience, it may well serve to mitigate the "unspeakable queerness" of Zen to the average westerner--to make the kicks and shouts of the Zen patriarchs seem less like the behavior of lunatics. Students of Japanese culture, too, will find that it sheds much light on the way in which art and religion have been traditionally blended." New Statesman Herrigel's book may have inspired Tim Gallwey's 1974 book The Inner Game of Tennis. Both Herrigel and Gallwey approach sport and life as opportunities for learning inner cooperation. Zen in the Art of Archery also relates to the "inner child" idea in humanistic psychology. This work most likely inspired the titles of many other works, either directly or indirectly. Foremost among these is Robert Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. J. D. Salinger's fictional character Seymour Glass applied one aspect of Zen archery--aiming by deliberately not taking aim--to playing the children's game of marbles. The wider theme of many of these works is that a regular routine can have a spiritual dimension.
