Phædrus, our narrator, takes a present-tense cross-country motorcycle trip with his son during which the maintenance of the motorcycle becomes an illustration of how we can unify the cold, rational realm of technology with the warm, imaginative realm of artistry. In this best-selling new book, his first in seventeen years, Robert M. Pirsig, author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, takes us on a poignant and passionate journey as mysterious and compelling as his first life-changing work. Instead of a motorcycle, a sailboat carries his Phaedrus down the Hudson River as winter closes in.

This literal and physically small book is a great and approachable introduction to the philosopher. I'm glad it wasn't titled 'Coffees with' because certainly one can finish it over a taller cup. The book is written in a series of dialogues with the philosopher as if someone with modern day queries was able to have the man alive and accounting for his writings. Considering the nature of Plato's writings this dialgue nature of discovery seems quite appropriate. Fun, brisk and not without a sense of humor, you could do worse for an introduction to the greater, expansive lexicon...just don't expect this to keep you company long.

I loved this little book.
It is now nearly fifty years since I studied with Mr. Moor at Portland State. His introducing me to Plato is something that has made my life better.
This little book captures his message: Plato is not esoteric, the message he has is clear and reasonably argued; the problems he is dealing with are not much different that those of today. Read!

Don Moor is a clever, well-versed philosopher, but the constraints of this series fail to show him, or Plato, at their best. The book is an amusing diversion, however, I found that it did not provide a meaningful introduction to Plato nor a realistic recreation of the historic period.
