Om Zen and the Art of Moto Taxi Survival
Paris in the springtime... Bright, romantic, inspiring... For one American middle manager in Paris, not so much. With a full afternoon of meetings booked, a pressured global exec called "Ryder" stepped off the red-eye and ran smack into the wall of a classic Paris taxi strike. Deadlines looming for their first presentation with combative French colleagues, Ryder went with the fastest transport option available - a moto taxi, hyped by a young Frenchman dressed head to toe in leather. Racing the clock, Ryder had the hair-raising ride of a lifetime, hanging on for dear life to the back of a sport touring motorcycle that did things in traffic you can only do in France. And the result? A surprising mix of lessons in life, insights into the unique French temperament, productivity tips for working globally, essential motorcycle safety instructions,and the kind of Zen practice you can't get sitting cross-legged at home.
