Part psychological study and part self-help book, Finding Flow is a prescriptive guide that helps us reclaim ownership of our lives. The key, according to Csikszentmihalyi, is to challenge ourselves with tasks that require a high degree of skill and commitment. Instead of watching television, play the piano; transform a routine task with a different approach. In short, learn the joy of complete engagement. The book ends with an emphatic tone: When we act in the fullness of the flow experience, we are building a bridge to the future of our universe. This is a must read for anyone who want to understand life and enjoy it to the max. 407 Borrows.

Csikszentmihályi characterized nine component states of achieving flow including "challenge-skill balance, merging of action and awareness, clarity of goals, immediate and unambiguous feedback, concentration on the task at hand, paradox of control, transformation of time, loss of self-consciousness, and autotelic experience". To achieve a flow state, a balance must be struck between the challenge of the task and the skill. ISBN 0-465-02411-4 (a popular exposition emphasizing technique).

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi is professor of psychology and education at the University of Chicago. He is the author of a number of books, including the bestselling Flow, The Evolving Self, Creativity, and Being Adolescent. 26 people found this helpful. The book Finding Flow is a less academic (and shorter) version of Mihaly great book: "Flow", which for me is one of the best books I've ever read. Finding Flow offers great insights in how we can get the most from targeted life goals or simple everyday tasks. I wish I would have read this book when I was in high school or college. This book can have a great positive impact on your life.

This is a reduced version of the book Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience (which was excellent.). If you read the first book you won't get much from this one.

A very scant read that hardly delivers on its title. This book focuses primarily on how flow can improve and add meaning to your life. This book does not give much insight on how to create flow or give you much instruction or tools for establishing more flow in your life. Had I known what the book was really about I probably would've skipped this version and just read Csikszentmihalyi's original book on flow.

This book contains useful informations about who, when, where people experience Flow, therefore it gives you some hint to find it. Nevertheless it is quite a high overview or general approach on how to find it. It lacks tactical means to find it, more practical ways or method someone can experiment with …

"Finding Flow" is the popular presentation of the author's academic research into what he calls "flow" - the state of being absorbed in an activity; be it work, a hobby or a relationship - and how such experiences form the basis of a rich life.
Csikszentmihalyi goes over the nature of what we experience and classifies them according to the level of challenge vs. the skill we can bear upon them. He then discusses how we feel when doing these different types of activities. The two core chapters cover work and leisure. Csikszentmihalyi shows how engagement with ones job and pursuing active hobbies provide more personal satisfaction than passive entertainment and mere lounging. It is this notion that will clash with many people's belief in what makes them happy; happiness being something that Csikszentmihalyi considers a fleeting emotion and different from true contentment. As has been noted by the philosopher A.C. Grayling, if we are after happiness alone, then we can just self-medicate.
Other chapters examine how relationships are better if you engage in them, rather than merely meet material obligations to loved ones, and what kinds of personalities are better suited to achieving flow. There is a chapter, as well as some discussion throughout, on how to increase flow in your own life. This gives the book an additional self-help angle (which is what the back cover is trying to market it as.) The final chapter begins with some light philosophizing and quickly degenerates into an off-topic discussion of religion, lacking a thesis and coming across as the ramblings of a stoned first-year college student. This is unfortunate in that it mars an otherwise very strong treatment of what constitutes a good life.

Mihaly is one of the truly great minds our time. The book Finding Flow is a less academic (and shorter) version of Mihaly great book: "Flow", which for me is one of the best books I've ever read. Finding Flow offers great insights in how we can get the most from targeted life goals or simple everyday tasks. I wish I would have read this book when I was in high school or college. This book can have a great positive impact on your life.

It's a very interesting read and one that makes you think. It serves very well as motivation/inspiration for finding more flow in your life. But if you already have that desire, it won't do much to help you actually find more flow. As I read it I came up with a few ideas for improving the amount of flow in my life, but no great breakthroughs.

In short, it's an interesting and motivating read but it's not a practical guide to implementing it.

It does give you the basics, though, if you can figure out how to apply them. The basics are no secret, though: eliminate distractions and focus even if you don't want to. Easier said than done, of course.

I'd recommend it to anyone, especially those who may not have figured out that happiness is in the doing not the getting.

This companion to Flow offered some helpful specifics about the effects of different uses of time. It largely reiterates on the themes in Flow, but includes supplementary depth on why we choose to use our time the way we do.
Great, easy to read wisdom here. Csikszmentmihalyi might not be a household name, but he is highly regarded in his discipline, and he writes effortlessly (in flow!).
