Publisher's Summary

The great psychologist Abraham Maslow's life's work was devoted to studying the nature of personality. His forte was that he was interested in personality at all levels. He described and codified the state of ultimate mental health. He called it "self-actualization". He taught human motivation as emerging from a hierarchy of needs - as basic needs are met like food and water, higher needs arise like love. At the pinnacle stands self-actualization. Becoming personally, socially and vocationally fulfilled - that is the essence of self-actualization. It is about growth and experiencing life fully and vividly, with joy and sadness, with complete concentration and total absorption. It is about appreciating life for everything it brings you. Gaining self-actualization is not a simple task. Maslow estimated that a mere 1% of us ever achieve that state. Unfortunately Maslow passed on before he formulated a practical approach to helping individuals reach for self-actualization in their own lives.

Not quite easy to understand

Felt like attending a college lecture that requires study after the class. It may take several times of listening to fully grasp the concepts.
