Did you ever wonder what would be the most valuable books to read?
What books are the most important? What books are the
most influential books of all time? There is not one
book that would provide you with all the knowledge and
information that you need. There is not one book that
would make you intelligent. But there are books that
will change you, there are books that will inspire you,
and there are books that will enlighten you.
And there are books that have not been written yet, so I
feel that the best books that were ever written have not
yet been written. So start writing

take 1-2 minutes to read each page. So it will take on the
average of 20 minutes a day to read 15 pages.

valuable and important, and, you have to know how this knowledge and
information will benefit you in your life, and, you have to know when will
you most likely use this information and knowledge? If you correctly file

Tibet - Cry of the Snow Lion
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
was first published in 1974,
is a work of philosophical non-fiction, the first of Robert M. Pirsig's
texts in which he explores his Metaphysics of Quality. The book describes,
in first person, a 17-day journey on his motorcycle from Minnesota to
Northern California by the author (though he is not identified in the
book) and his son Chris. They are joined for the first nine days of the
trip by close friends John and Sylvia Sutherland, with whom they part ways
Montana. The trip is punctuated by numerous philosophical
discussions, referred to as Chautauquas by the author, on topics including
epistemology, ethical emotivism and the philosophy of science. Many of
these discussions are tied together by the story of the narrator's own
past self, who is referred to in the third person as Phaedrus (after
Plato's dialogue). Phaedrus, a teacher of creative and technical writing
at a small college, became engrossed in the question of what defines good
writing, and what in general defines good, or "Quality". His philosophical
investigations eventually drove him insane, and he was subjected
electroconvulsive therapy which permanently changed his personality.
Towards the end of the book, Phaedrus's personality begins to re-emerge
and the narrator is reconciled with his past.

Because Shakespeare expresses ideas and emotions that we
still know today and asks questions that are likewise relevant. Because
Shakespeare was historically significant. Because Shakespeare manages to
eloquently unite centuries of human evolution in a form that has its own
unique flair for the slightly archaic yet still resonant. Because, as a
figurehead for his time period, Shakespeare provides insight into the past
and a starting-point for inquiry into that past. Because Shakespeare helps
endow one with an eye for verbal and linguistic beauty that can enliven
writing long after the play is finished. And because if you read carefully
enough, the works of Shakespeare may still speak to you today.
