I read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance back in the '70s - and have just finished re-reading it after getting back on a bike.
This book is worth your time if you wonder about living in a world increasingly dominated by technology - and the alarming lack of authenticity it engenders in the people around us. With cell phones now it is even more extreme - like the age of cyborgs or something.
I like how he searches for a balance between his fascination with understanding and repairing the mechanical workings and "systems" in his motorcycle, and his need to understand some of the less rational aspects of himself and people around him who want to reject technology for the ills it brings to society and the planet. Probably a bit too heavy for most - but if just one person picks it up and gets it - its worth mentioning.
