Editorial Reviews

Review

“Flow is important....The way to happiness lies not in mindless hedonism, but in mindful challenge.” (New York Times Book Review)

“Rethinks what motivates people.” (Newsweek)

“Explore[s] a happy state of mind called flow, the feeling of complete engagement in a creative or playful activity” (Time magazine)

From the Back Cover

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.
