It happens when an artist loses himself entirely in his work, or when a basketball player enters that "zone" where it seems everything she throws up will drop in. This is "flow" -- the freedom of total absorption in an activity, the almost euphoric state of concentration and involvement.
Esteemed psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi reveals why flow is one of the most rewarding states of being life has to offer. And he demonstrates how listeners can achieve this state at will. The widely acclaimed Flow has already helped thousands of people turn their everyday experiences into opportunities for joy and fulfillment. New listeners will learn to redirect energy, overcome anxiety, and harmonize all of life's elements.
