I like the book because it really takes the study of human happiness seriously, and it has some very interesting things to say about what makes people happy.
I agree with the author that flow states are very satisfying, and I found his understanding of the requirements for achieving flow (especially the diagram on p. 31) to be helpful and interesting. But this is probably because I already have an extremely good method for experiencing flow. Those who do not will probably find his discussion a bit difficult to follow, perhaps even frustrating.
The best way that I've found to experience the state of flow is to pay attention to your breath, breathe fully, rhyhtmically and deeply, and harmonize the rhythm of your breath with the rhythm of your activity. For example, when walking, take 8 steps as you breathe in, 8 steps as you breathe out. For more on how to actually achieve flow, see "Living from the Heart", by Puran Bair (my father).
