One of my favorite books and I don't read very few. 100% worth it, even though it is not a how to book it has massive practical advice

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!

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.

Flow is a book that I'll recommend all my scholar friends to read. The author guides you through his research and let you evaluate each theory, experiment, interview by presenting the just-enough detail of them.

However, it requires some mental energy to be invested. You will not benefit from this book enough by just reading it through'just like what the author mentioned.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
