Reviewer Henry Gurr, Prifessor of Physics wrote:
The "Guidebook to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" (by Ronald L. Disanto & Thomas J. Steele) serves as a metaphorical "backpack of supplies" for the reader's journey through Pirsig's original book "Zen & Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" (ZMM). DiSanto & Steels [history & literary] " Guidebook to ZMM" has 1) a map and itinerary of the ZMM author Robert Pirsig's motorcycle trip, 2) explanations of Zen practices, 3) several published literary reviews of ZMM, 4) an unpublished chapter that was eliminated from the original manuscript, 5) a complete listing (plus explanation) of the Pirsig's "Master Motifs" used in ZMM, and much more.
One reader stated: "For fans of ZMM, this is an incredible book that summarizes various aspects of the ZMM book. First and foremost, it gives you the necessary background on philosophy to get a better understanding of where the Pirsig is coming from." This guidebook is a great resource for persons who are using ZMM in their teaching. Highly recommended.
