Gah! Talk about distracting.

I would have tried to edit the book myself to make it readable, but the little I saw of the content didn't seem worth that effort, so I gave it up
This got me thinking, maybe I should go for the real thing and read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig. From the professional reviews I can see, its philosophical content may be a bit questionable but it's an enjoyable read. Though not everyone agrees on that at Librarything.

Any of you guys read it?
