    Hi Ian

    The lecture was given at the Association of Humanistic Psychology
    Conference (titled "Values - The Heart of the Matter") held in San Diego

    The transcription is my own. I have only transcribed excerpts as much of
    the lecture is taken directly from ZMM and LILA. Pirsig has checked my

    sessions with the audience, when he shares personal recollections about
    the time period covered in ZMM and when he talks about the creative
    problems he had writing LILA. He is a good speaker and comes across as
    genuine, passionate and amusing.

    I'm glad you found the excerpts interesting.
