In the giving spirit of the season, Bishop shared his experience with a life-changing book:
When I was fourteen, I was given a copy of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. It was the first book I was given. I don’t overstate when I say that book changed my view of the world. It was one reason I majored in philosophy in college. It’s an esoteric piece to be sure, and it would’ve been easy for someone to think I was too young to understand it. But that didn’t happen. I devoured the book, and have read it again countless times since then. It’s not a spiritual book. Rather it broadened my understanding, taught me to think, and to view the world in new ways. It’s kind of astounding if you think about it. A collection of words printed onto paper had that kind of lasting effect. Of course not every book will have that kind of impact, but some might. And it might just be a book you least expect, one you might not have bought for yourself.
