"Czikszentmihalyi eloquently argues that living fully in the here and now requires that one heed the lessons of the past."
New York Times Book Review

"This famous psychologist of 'peak experience' returns to the themes of his 1990 classic, Flowóhow to reach the peak through focused energy, and how humans mark the universe in unique waysóbut this time the explanation is shorter, sharper, and far more accessible."
- Utne Reader

"Mihaly Czikszentmihalyi has a genius for illuminating phenomena that perplex most behavioral scientists. In this brilliant synthesis, he shows how all of us can enhance our work, our play, our lives."
- Howard Gardner, author of Extraordinary Minds

"Mihaly Czikszentmihalyi is a man obsessed by happiness."
- Richard Flaste, The New York Times

Description
Part psychological study, part self-help book, Finding Flow is a prescriptive guide that helps us reclaim ownership of our lives. Based on a far-reaching study of thousands of individuals, Finding Flow contends that we often walk through our days unaware and out of touch with our emotional lives. Our inattention makes us constantly bounce between two extremes: during much of the day we live filled with the anxiety and pressures of our work and obligations, while during our leisure moments, we tend to live in passive boredom. The key, according to Csikszentmihalyi, is to challenge ourselves with tasks requiring a high degree of skill and commitment. Instead of watching television, play the piano. Transform a routine task by taking a different approach. In short, learn the joy of complete engagement. Thought they appear simple, the lessons in Finding Flow are life-altering.

Biography
