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.… (mere)

Great fundamental premise, but once I got that, it wasn't worth the effort to read the rest of the book. It's VERY dry.

The basic thesis is fine and useful - that is: There exists a zone of optimal learning whereby the learner is operating in a sufficiently complex system relative to his skill level. If the system is too complex for the learner, he will get frustrated and anxious, and if the system is too simply, he will get bored. The theory is interesting and seems consistent with reality. The author shares a number of anecdotes to exemplify his theory.

But when he's not talking about the theory, he's talking about what amounts to secular theology: construct your purpose, etc. He lost me there.

Overall, the science of the book is good, but ignore the rest. ( )

I've only read 4 chapters of this book and I am completely lost and bored to death.

The book promises to help you be "in the zone" and achieving high productivity when doing a task, but unfortunately it is impossible to do that with this book. Mihaly seems to have written a lot of words without actually saying anything. I tried to focus on the chapters I read, but unfortunately had very few takeaways (that did not motivate me to continue reading this book).

A lot of it just feels like pseudoscience BS that I cannot put up with it. Do not recommend it. ( )

I finally got around to reading this book that has been recommended to me so often. Thanks to a book club at work concerning leadership and self-development.

I can easily see how this book, written in the 1990s, has come to change the world of business and especially any "Experience" field such as CX, UX, etc. Flow is about reaching a super productive and happy mental state, simply called flow. While anyone involved in positive psychology would tell you they have heard it before, no one did when this book was written. This was the spark that ignited a few flames.

The other side of this coin is that there is some doom and gloom moralizing that 90s kids will be all too familiar with. Every single time the author drags out drugs and pre-marital sex being disastrous I just laughed. Wait a few decades, we have some surprises for you.

If you can get past how dated this book is, there's the root of so many ideas that are now current in design, software architecture, management, productivity, etc. It takes a few "Ok Boomer" moments but don't let those distract you from the underlying point.

The underlying argument that flow is achieved between a range of difficulty strikes me as something Western Esotercists and those who study Philosophy and Myth may already be accustomed to. From Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, to the idea of Thumos, and even esoteric implication of Will and the myths of blessings also being a curse, we have the same issue of finding balance.

It's fascinating both how esoteric impulses predate the hottest trends (looking at you _X career professionals), but are still ridiculed. Simply apply a secular paint job and viola! You too can lifehack productivity levels while increasing employee satisfaction and customer engagement! Magical, isn't it? ( )

I'll come out and admit it. It took two tries to finally get into this book, but it was worth the work. Basically, this is the book about how you reach that state known as flow, where you get so enthused about what your doing that time stands still and speeds by. A bit technical and self-referncial, but interesting. ( )
