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.

Would you try another book from Robert M. Pirsig and/or Michael Kramer?

No way in God's green earth.

What could Robert M. Pirsig have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not written it.

Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Kramer’s performances?

No. I found his style to be sterile and medicinal.

What disappointed you about Twitter Power?

The book is awful and redundant.

Any additional comments?

This book isn't worth the carbon footprint it consumes to download it.

  • The Accidental Billionaires

  • The Founding of Facebook: A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal
  • By: Ben Mezrich

The high-energy tale of how two socially awkward Ivy Leaguers, trying to increase their chances with the opposite sex, ended up creating Facebook. The Accidental Billionaires is a compulsively readable story of innocence lost, and of the unusual creation of a company that has revolutionized the way hundreds of millions of people relate to one another.

A third of the way into the book I couldn't stand any of the people. Trite and nauseating.
