5.0 von 5 Sternen Eine informative Einführung in die Theorie des Glücks
Das Flow-Konzept von Csikszentmihalyi ist mittlerweile zum Klassiker in vielen Bereichen der Psychologie geworden; interessanterweise ist der Begriff auch sehr popularisiert worden und inzwischen in aller Munde - von der Fitneß-Zeitschrift bis zum Performance-Künstler.
Allein aus diesem Grund lohnt es sich, dieses Buch zu lesen. Andererseits ist es aber...

2.0 von 5 Sternen Long on Metaphor, Short on Science
Flow is an ecstatic state that occurs when according to Dr. C. you are really, really paying attention to some creative or demanding act. And all credit to Dr. C. for brining our attention to flow and how it influences peoples lives. But there is a teensy little problem. Dr. C. tell us what other people tell him 'flow' feels like, but in 300 pages, he never tells us...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Flow is a superb concept and this is an enriching book, 12. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Flow (Taschenbuch)
When I first read FLOW in graduate school, I was struck by the simple idea of it: being absorbed in whatever you're doing leads to flow, which usually leads to feeling you're living a meaningful life. I now use "flow" as a lens to consider everything; so many people seem so miserable because they haven't found their flow activity, or haven't been willing or able to make room for it in their lives. In my own book, WRITING IN FLOW, for which Csikszentmihalyi wrote the Foreword, I was able to apply these ideas to a writing life, which merely shows their universality. My life hasn't been the same since!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Insightful and worthwhile, 18. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Flow (Taschenbuch)
Ignore any reviews which denegrate Csikszentmihalyi's work as "obvious" or the pop-culture equivalent of Zen. This book has a resonance of validity that can only come from extensive study and contemplation. Understanding WHY and HOW other people fill their lives with meaning and purpose can help clarify your own life. Even if you're unable to find anything in this text that can be applied to yourself, it's no less valid a study than, say, appreciating a leaf for its green-ness or how it floats to earth in the fall. This book is such an examination of one of the most basic driving forces of humanity.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not a "quick fix", a scientific approach to a better life., 13. Februar 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Flow (Taschenbuch)
This is an outstanding, well-researched, easy-to-read guide to transcending the limits of joy typically imposed by materialism, class, religion, behaviorism, and self-doubt.

Great approach to integrating success in work, love, life; not about finding a trick. It is a tool (not a morality) to increase attention, which provides focus to build skills, which increases the ability to solve tasks of greater complexity, which leads to richer & fuller lives (social, personal, mental, etc.). Not hot air--backed by research

5.0 von 5 Sternen An outstanding analysis of the creative experience., 15. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Flow (Taschenbuch)
Professor Csikszentmihalyi takes a difficult concept and makes it accessible. The ramifications of his work are virtually limitless. We have the power to choose the realities in which we live, and this book offers invaluable insights into creating the optimal reality for each of us. But more than being "inspirational", his work is scientific and critical. A "must read" for the intellectual interested in psychological growth and understanding.

5.0 von 5 Sternen .Eastern secret of Moderation defined scientifically, 21. Juli 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Flow (Taschenbuch)
Of the hundreds of psychology, new age, or self
help books that we have to choose from, FLOW is of the few that is absolutely a Must. It defines
that which we all seek from birth to death: HAPPINESS. It defines what makes happiness, why
we feel it, and why we do not. And when I applied
the author's theories in my own life, I did indeed
find that what he wrote is rare and precious truth.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Happiness Defined, 18. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Flow (Taschenbuch)
Of all the great comments, nobody seems to mention the core of this book is a realistic look at the ever elusive "happiness". The author shows how we are taught to seek the wrong things when we attempt to seek happiness. A very important lesson and one that will stick with you in your struggle to make a happy life. Get it. Read it several times.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Repetitive and vague, 14. Januar 2014
Von

Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Flow (P.S.) (Kindle Edition)
The book never explicitly states what Flow really is. As mentioned in countless other 1 star reviews, the author repeats the same vague principle (do something that requires most of your attention) over and over in different scenarios. In the beginning this is mildly entertaining but what killed the book for me was when he mentioned that you could turn urban commuting into flow by e.g. timing your walks with the traffic lights.
For some reason he seems to have taken a shine to mountaineers and doctors. Since I am a mountaineer/climber and almost done with medical school, I have a pretty good idea of both disciplines. Especially his descriptions of surgery couldn't be more wrong. Yes, some procedures might constitute what he calls flow, but 50% of the time everyone just talks about whatever is on his mind while the radio is running in the background.
His scientific approach towards worker happinness is not in line with the other literature I have read and might be a bit outdated. I can especially recommend reading "Thinking, Fast and Slow" in regards to the quality of such surveys.
The only take home message in this typical pseudoesoteric self-help book is that apparently every task, even the most mundane, can be turned into flow really easily and work is mostly fun even if you think it's not so stop whining and start walking in geometric shapes timed inversely to the traffic lights to make the most of your commuting!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Important physiologic findings., 4. Dezember 1996
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Flow (Taschenbuch)
The author's findings might well be taken into consideration by virtual reality and video game developers, since "flow" is a neurophysiologic event which may be potentiated by external stimuli. Flow is about being fully engaged - which can result in happiness, but more important, satisfaction, fulfillment, self-realization

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent - Do Recommend!, 2. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Flow (Taschenbuch)
I read this book on the way out to the YMCA National Long Course Swimming Championships, and it truly helped me lose my pre-event nerves! I realized that the best performance one can have is when he/she becomes so involved it just happens - there was no thinking involved! If you believe it's possible, it happens.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent treatise on happiness., 21. November 1996
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Flow (Taschenbuch)
The optimal flow model is an excellent conceptualization of our search for happiness. However, the exemplars of this model include the Nazi war criminal Eichmann, which made me question mine and the author's notion of happiness
