Publisher Comments:

Psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's famous investigations of "optimal experience" have revealed that what makes an experience genuinely satisfying is a state of consciousness called flow. During flow, people typically experience deep enjoyment, creativity, and a total involvement with life. In this new edition of his groundbreaking classic work, Csikszentmihalyi demonstrates the ways this positive state can be controlled, not just left to chance. Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience teaches how, by ordering the information that enters our consciousness, we can discover true happiness and greatly improve the quality of our lives.

About the Author


Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi is professor and former chairman of the Department of Psychology at the University of Chicago.

His previous books include Flow and The Evolving Self. Flow was shown on the 1993 NBC Super Bowl broadcast as the book that inspired Jimmy Johnson, then coach of the Dallas Cowboys. It was also a selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club and the Quality Paperback Book Club.

DANE, July 27, 2014 (view all comments by DANE)
You may not be able to pronounce the author's name but don't let that put you off. Flow is an extremely readable and fascinating book. You've probably heard the term "getting in the zone" ... well, this will explain exactly what that means and why it's so beneficial to discover your own zone. Being fully immersed an activity to the point of losing track of time is something most of us have experience at one time or another. This book explores this phenomena and suggests reasons we should seek it out.
