Pirsig wrote Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values in 1974. The philosophical novel, based on autobiographical events, explores the �Metaphysics of Quality,� a theory of reality that places Quality, or what is good or of value, as of the utmost importance. The book became an outstanding bestseller, reaching 15 million sales worldwide. It was printed in twenty-seven languages and was described by the press as �the most widely read philosophy book, ever.� It was featured in Waterstones Books of the Century, The Modern Library's 100 Best Novels, and HarperCollins 100 Best Spiritual Books of the Century.
