The theory of "flow" is that it is a means by which we can improve our lives by constantly increasing our experience of happiness. The book examines the challenges of lifelong learning, flow and the family, art, sport, work and sex as flow, the pain of loneliness, optimal use of free time and how to make meaning in our lives.

Review:

"Elegantly written...it is more relevant than ever" ( The Times)

"Mr Csikszentmihalyi illuminates the accuracy of what philosophers have been saying for centuries: that the way to happiness lies not in mindless hedonism but in mindful challenge" ( The New York Times)

From the Publisher:

This classic popular psychology title explains how, by altering our perspective, we can achieve happiness, dispel disharmony and enter a state of perfect equilibrium – a state of ‘flow’.
