  1. weird review. it’s as if he doesn’t realise that no one takes Pirsig 100% seriously.

    also, the summary: “a lot of the concepts we use can’t be defined, they can only be used. When we try to define them, they crumble into confusion, and we have perhaps spoiled some perfectly good concepts.” explains why I liked the book so much I tink. that is, “infant baptism? adult baptism? its all rock and roll baby.”

    you dig?

    If I haven’t taken ZAMM seriously, I don’t know what it means to take a book seriously.
