    This thought-provoking journal of a man's quest for truth - and for himself - has touched and changed an entire generation, and is ready to reach out to a new one. At its heart, the story is all too simple: a man and his son take a motorcycle trip across America. But this is not a simple trip at all, for around every corner, their pilgrimage leads them to new vistas of self-discovery and renewal.

    Carl says: "definitive version, hasn't aged too badly"
    "Essential reading for everyone"
    Overall

    A life changer. I read this book 35 years ago and it changed my life. I listened to it last week and it was even better. It is a metaphor for our entire culture. This book should be mandatory reading for every high school senior. Forget Catcher in the Rye. this book is about living a life that is worthwhile and satisfying. Somehow knowledge of the history of philosophy has become irrelevant and "useless" in our society, a part of the anti-intellectual movement that seems to have swept through our society like an unchecked virus. One of the great parts of this book is providing the reader with a knowledge of where our present day philosophy comes from. The very point of the novel, "quality" bursts out from every page of the book. In answer to the proverbial question, "if you were on a desert island..", this would be the book.
