In its introduction, Pirsig explains that, despite its title, "it should in no way be associated with that great body of factual information relating to orthodox Zen Buddhist practice. It's not very factual on motorcycles, either."Author: Robert M. Pirsig.   Out of his experiences came the book Zen in the Art of Archery. This was one of the first book I read on the subject.
