The Top 100 Inspirational Books: 100 - 81
97 - Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
Even the story of this book’s printing is inspirational. It was reportedly rejected by more publishers than any other bestselling book. Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is a 17 day philosophical journey across America. The author writes about his emotional trip, shared with two friends and his son Chris, and discusses their conversations on philosophy are what make up the bulk of the book. It is a book about finding yourself in the wake of strong conversation in the most unlikely of places – on a motorcycle.
