WMNF Drive-Time News Friday | Listen to this entire show:

In the 1970s, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, by Robert Pirsig, sold millions of copies and was described as the most widely read philosophy book ever.

One man who fell under the spell of that book was Mark Richardson, who ended up taking the same itinerary, from Minneapolis to San Francisco as did Pirsig.

Richardson has now written his own book on it, called, Zen and Now: On the Trail of Robert Pirsig and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.

Tune in to the Evening News next week for the second part of this interview.
