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...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Willie Loman takes up zen philosophy, 13. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Flow (Taschenbuch)
I enjoyed the first few chapters of this book but became increasingly frustrated with the shallowness of the author's research and thought. He cites many studies by his followers which are bound to prove his point. More seriously, he seems completely unfamiliar with both serious questions about the meaning of life and the serious exploitative meaninglessness of many jobs and pastimes offered to us by late twentieth-century capitalism. Sure, you can find flow while entering data or pushing papers, but is this really how you want to spend your life? Wouldn't you rather be a professor at the University of Chicago, surrounded by disciples whose research validates your own ideas--like Csikszentmihalyi?

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the most important books of our age, 6. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Flow (Taschenbuch)
If you've ever wanted to achieve happiness in life -- not just fun or pleasure but true, profound happiness -- you should read this book. Since perhaps no desire than this one is more fundamental to every human being's struggle, it's hard to imagine a more important subject for a book.
Csikszentmihalyi's observations, as he notes himself, are nothing new; you can find them in an array of ancient philosophies and religions, especially Eastern ones. But what makes this book so compelling and so important for contemporary readers is that he has arrived at his conclusions through over two decades of scientific research. Therefore, they are endowed with an authority and a clarity of definition which members of our cynical, secular society often find frustratingly lacking in philosophies from other times and other places. At the same time, this scientific dovetailing with the likes of Buddhism and Taoism and other systems of thought lends those "religions" greater substance and relevance for contemporary readers.
Some enlightened souls may find the revelations here less than revelatory. Other people may find that they suddenly hear the lyrics that have been sung to them in chorus after chorus by ancient and mystical voices, and will recognize the common truths of those verses for the first time. Those are the ones whose lives will be changed by reading this book.

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 Concisely and clearly illuminates how our minds operate., 8. August 1997
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Flow (Taschenbuch)
This is an extraordinary book. The author's writing style is unusually concise and he is able to explain complex ideas in a simple and understandable style. The concept of flow is intuitively very appealing. The author conducted an apparently well structured empirical study of the causes and conditions that resulted in "optimal experience" (ie happiness) and reached some insightful and convincing conclusions. The ability to achieve "optimal experience" is tightly linked to the ability to focus on fulfilling personally determined goals. Although the book is useful as a personal blueprint for achieving "optimal experience" I found more facinating his compelling arguments about the functioning of the human mind and spirit

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 Definitely first-rate!, 9. Mai 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Flow (Taschenbuch)
The author explains the flow state as that period when the task at hand is challenging enough to totally engage us, rescuing us from boredom, but not so challenging that we fail, frustration setting in. Between the two extremes of boredom (too easy) and frustration (too hard) we find the flow channel -- blissful execution, seemingly effortless progress, and an overall feeling of happiness. The author goes on to explain learning as excursions out of the flow channel -- becoming too comfortable (bored) so that we seek harder challenges, or seeking more skills so that we can overcome the frustration of failing at difficult tasks. Hence all learning is seen as driving us back into the flow channel from either above or below. There is even a beautiful graph to illustrate the process. This book gives you a new way of looking at the world, and makes you wonder why we all can't spend more time in the channel being happier. Read it
