Every few years I make my way through this book. For the first time this year I attempted reading it as ebook. I couldn't do it. Just like something seems slightly off about a brand new copy of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, something seems horribly off when reading it on a screen.
I suppose some people find it pedantic. I definitely find the slipping sanity depressing. I don't find it an easy read, but I do find it an interesting one, one that I mull over ideas and scribble notes in the margins. This is a book to have a conversation with, leaving it dog eared and with underlined passages.
