Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenence by Robert M. Pirsig
Another beautifully written book. Links philosophy with science and points out that this world that you've been living in all your life may not be quite like you thought it was. And bother to read the afterword too. But make sure that you do it after you've read the book. I'd like to say more in order to make the review larger than the title. But there's not a lot to say, the book speaks for itself. Sorry.
