  • Description

    This book of nonfiction focuses on what are the reasons, experiences and states of mind that make a person genuinely happy. The author calls this state of deep ecstatic state ‘flow’, which is aptly the title of the book.

    Summary of the book

    Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, the author, studied all those states of mind in which people reported their moments of deepest enjoyments and concentration. He explains how this results in experiencing a genuinely satisfying state called Flow. When concentration is keenly focused amounting to absolute absorption in any activity, it evokes a perfect sense of happiness. The book gains importance with its contribution to contemporary psychology. The book also discusses timeless issues like art, sports, family, relationships and sex which constitute a continuous learning process in life. The psychology of optimal experience can be controlled as a positive state of mind, and is not a matter of luck or chance. On this note, the book indeed helps in improving the quality of life.

    Great works on "FLOW" or "Concentrated Hard work "

    I would like to give brief literature review on this book.
    Equations for happiness from Prof Martin Saligman as below.
    Happiness H = p + e + m
    p - Pleasure ( Kama )
    e - Engagement ( Aartha )
    m - Meaning ( Dharma )
    One more entity called "Moksha" ( Permanent Happiness refer "Drg Drishya Viveka" by Vidhyaranya 11th Century text 32 verses )
    This book details with "Engagement = Concentrated hard work or Condition of Flow".
    Hope this helps and Happy reading !!

    Bought it at paytm for 500

    Excellent Book. Tells you when you do get happy and when you do not. Tells you the difference between happiness arising from:
    (i) Pleasure (kama)
    (ii) Engagement (artha)
    (iii) Meaning (dharma)

    It is no surprise that western philosophers are now defining happiness in alignment with ancient Vedic idea of philosophy. For a deeper understanding, you will need to dig deeper into Upanishads (texts of Vedic philosophy)
