Exactly! With the caveat - Pirsig's MOQ may not be the be-all and
end-all of human history but it presents the Western world with the best
description of itself yet. It can make a difference; it has made an
impact upon the West already. The "Quality" movement of the Eighties in
corporate America was largely attributable to Pirsig's lovely ZATAOMM,
even if they didn't get it exactly right.

By all means, spread the word.Don
