Description

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.

Good book, passable performance

Very good book but I've found the performance to be boring and a bit dull

Great book. Easy to listen and relate to.

I loved reading this book in part because it hit home on some of my own questions as to why I am unhappy and how to be more productive with my freetime.

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.

A few nuggets but seemed to meander

Any additional comments?

An interesting subject ("flow") but I felt that the material meandered-- felt like a collection of findings, anecdotes, opinions; some of it repetitive, some of it seemingly unrelated to "flow." Perhaps it could have been organized better. Some interesting points here and there but it didn't seem to build up to anything. In fact, the ending felt "new age," out of place, and unsatisfying.

An evidence based approach to truly living

The author has a great personal story. He has done fascinating in-depth research. He presents his prescription for living "in the flow" clearly. I heartily recommend this listen.

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.

My first complete audio book experience

Loved it. Other books I had just not been able to finish them. Maybe because I'm so passionate about the subject. Great!
