Publisher's Summary

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 of 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, and 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. Though they appear simple, the lessons in Finding Flow are life altering.

Not as much about the subject as I had hoped...

...instead, several hours of gender work tropes... and oddly enough, some self-contradictions (the author has his own bias about genders in the workplace, and addresses mostly men). If you're interested in the research being done on flow states, or if you're a woman - you can probably skip this one.

Flow! A Great Concept to live by.

Flow! A Great concept to strive to and live by. What surprised me was how he pushed his atheism on his readers though.

An OK audio book

Fell a little below expectations, got repetitive in the middle and seemed to debunk religion more than talking on flow at the end

Interesting concept

Given this author's work is so heavily cited by other authors I had hoped for more aha moments

I returned

this book said nothing about flow, other than 20minutes at the end of chapter 2, haha. It was a book that explained statistics of who worked where and how people feel about work. I was so disappointed, I gave it a chance, but it never got better.
