Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig

This book is about the Author who went on a motorcycle journey with his son Chris and friends John and Silvia. The main point of the book was to talk about a philosophy on how to live and learn from experience. Pirsig talks about classic and romantic things. To live is be between classical and romantic. Classical thinking is when you facing challenge you use logical thought to solve it. Romantic is more of a Zen type experience- with your intuitions and emotions. An enjoyable, thoughtful read!

A novel about Harlan Chesterton the privileged son of the Governor and Manny Cravitz a lower class boy who lives alone with his dad. This novel takes you on a journey of twists and turns to unravel the causes that connect the two boys together, the premonitions of their own demise. they come to learn that the visions are truly repressed memories that unveils the truly unpredictable ending. Hortinger uses incredible writing voice and the day out of the diffrent chapters makes you want to keep reading more and more. Ground and Humble is a true visionary work and is nothing short of greatness.
