Reading this book for the second time 40 years after the first time I was really nervous that it couldn’t hold up to the life-changing experience it was the first time I read it.   It didn’t quite make it to that level,   but at the same time I wasn’t disappointed because it was still a very good read,  especially toward the end.   But I’ve sometimes thought along these philosophical lines for years so …   Besides,  I’m now in my mid-60s and this is the 21st century.  At this age,  the word”quality” probably needs to better defined (if possible) and in this age “technology” is no longer a matter of motorcycle maintenance.  lol  A huge chunk of the book is really based on nostalgia for Pirsig/Phaedrus.  >>>>MORE>>>>
