For scientists and researchers, it is, of course, not enough to observe phenomena and draw what appear to be fairly obvious conclusions. No, such occurrences must be researched to determine whether what we think is happening is what is actually happening. Whether by focusing on inner peace, reevaluating unhealthy values, or finding ways to connect and be present in the moment, each book approaches its variation on the theme from different perspectives, from spiritual to existential to practical.
None, however, have concerned themselves with the psychology behind achieving such positive states, and how a person might apply those principles and make possible the transition from theory to practice. Despite the absence of such scholarly devices as footnotes and references unw the text there is, however, an extensive notes section at the endCsikszentmihalyi is clearly a researcher, and his style does not adequately escape the dry academia I recall having to write myself as a psych undergrad.
So, yeah, the book is a bit of dde bore to read, but not just because the prose lacks personality. What then of the other pages? Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Want to Read saving….

Una psicologia de la felicidad by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. Psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s famous investigations of “optimal experience” have revealed that what makes an experience genuinely satisfying is a state of consciousness called flow.
During flow, people typically experience deep enjoyment, creativity, and a total involvement with life. In this new edition of his groundbreaking classic work, Csikszentmihalyi demonst Psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s famous investigations of “optimal experience” have revealed that what makes an experience genuinely satisfying is a state of consciousness called flow.
In this new edition of his groundbreaking classic work, Csikszentmihalyi demonstrates the ways this positive state can be controlled, not just left to chance.
The Psychology of Optimal Experience teaches how, by ordering the information that enters our consciousness, we can discover true happiness and greatly improve the quality of our lives.

Felix Lo same feeling i have been getting so far. Is this another mumbo-jumbo, pseudo-scientific book?
Does it contain any scientific evidence?

You know that uncle you have, who doesn’t have any kids and loves to talk your ear off every Thanksgiving, and he’s a really nice guy, and he seems to know a lot of stuff, but when you look up the stuff he quotes he seems to always have it a bit off, and he never seems to have a book with him so maybe he did all his reading when he was young, but there’s no point calling bullshit on him, and you get a sense he’s not really listening anyway — well, this book is written by that guy.

This could have been an excellent 10 words, but I’m now 3 chapters in without any idea of what his plan is and how he can tell one chapter or sub-chapter from the next.
I get what “Flow” is and it’s great and I’m all-in. But this is diarrhea. View all 5 comments. Flow is the state where all mental energies are concentrated on an event which results in the person attaining “optimal experience,” which is basically happiness. He identifies certain conditions required to achieve flow: The person must be engaged in an activity that requires skill.

After reading Haidt’s “The Happiness Hypothesis,” I had such high expectations for one of the pioneers of the Positive Psychology movement.
Fluir (Flow): Una psicologia de la felicidad
I can see fpuir some critics claim the movement is merely neo-humanism. A rehashing of what Adler, Maslow, Erickson et al have said.
To be fair though, he did write in the preface that he had written this edition in laymen’s terms. I think he watered it down too much. It read like a run of the mill self-help book, with the usual “its not the situation, it’s your interpretation of it,” that determines your feelings, etc.
I feel like the book merely points out things that, on some level, we all intuitively know already.
The book is content in merely observing and categorizing human behavior, an attribute of popular psychology, which I feel gives psychology demerits in credibility. The book is content with saying aim for this but barely touches the surface of the important thing which is: I also have qualms in C’s method of data collection. The method involves giving subjects a pager that will sound at laa points of the day.
The subject is psicolpgia suppose to write down their feelings at that time. Basically a sporadic interviewing of the subjects. This poses a problem as what people write are not really what they mean.
Fluir (Flow): Una psicologia de la felicidad by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (2 star ratings)
For example, in Cacioppo and Patrick’s “Loneliness,” they presented a subject who overtly showed and expressed that he was a happy person. But when the subject was asked to answer a questionnaire used to determine if someone is depressed, his answers revealed that he was indeed the opposite of what he was telling people. He was depressed and he agreed to the findings of the questionnaire.
Of course in any science, our measurements are only as good as the tools we use to measure with. In psychology, this becomes convoluted. I do however, think of the postulates much. Particularly when I am working with my client who is cognitively impaired, I think, “How can I get this person into flow? I just wish he hadn’t buried the paradigm with glitter. This presents some interesting ideas that are almost self-evident when someone bothers pointing them out explicitly.
These often get overlooked and so are worth examining deliberately, though I’m not convinced that the book does a particularly good job of this. A bigger issue is that, while the author lays out seemingly clear-cut requirements This presents some interesting ideas that are almost self-evident when someone bothers pointing them out explicitly.
A bigger issue is that, while the author lays out seemingly clear-cut requirements for flow to occur, his actual determination of what constitutes a “flow activity” appears arbitrary.
I think this is because context plays an important role in the determination–there’s more to this than the simplistic set of criteria now quoted everywhere. For instance, counting cracks in the ceiling might be a flow activity for a political prisoner to help her endure incarceration, but watching reality TV doesn’t encourage flow in the average person.
On an objective basis, neither activity is particularly productive or enjoyable. More tellingly, both can be tailored to meet the requirements for flow.
Context is what might make one activity more fulfilling than the other in this example. The book lists many contexts that facilitate flow activities, but does not explain how these contexts come to be so special, nor describe any universal characteristics by which these contexts can be recognized, and thus leveraged.
One should become sceptical, when at the very beginning of a book, the author explains to have a tremendous scientific background but for the purpose of making his findings accessible for the masses, he would exclude it from the text at hand. The first 20 percent or so do actually contain some interesting information that help one understand the concept of flow pleasure vs.
This all sounds very nice and clear and scientific but in the end, is not much more than laymen philosophy. This becomes clearer and clearer in chapter 5, when the Csikszenmihalyi Will I ever be able to write or say that name with forgetting an ‘z’ or ‘t’ here and there?
Plain and boring, the book continues to give general advice on things like how to raise one’s children or keep a relationship alive. Everything Csitszentmizhaliy wrongly spelled, again. I love the idea of this book more than I enjoyed reading it.
Sometimes a book too focused on the intricacies of how something works makes me just want to put it down and DO it instead of read about it, ya know? Really struggled with this much recommended book. There are one or two nice tidbits, but the book has just so much other stuff going on – as if the author wants to show off his general knowledge.
Not a good read at all. I’d like a recommendation of a better book on this subject. I think it says a lot that the only interesting and thought-provoking parts of this book were the quotes of some other writers, psychologists and philosophers.
The original content of this book was, at best, mediocre, and at worst, pretentious, unscientific and boring.

The “notes and references” at the end of the book were fine, but they explained in my opinion only some random facts and thoughts the author presented, whereas some of the questionable parts of his ideas were completely unexplained and had no scientific basis whatsoever, resulting in some very shady and far-fetched conclusions.
Overall, the style just wasn’t likeable and the book didn’t offer any weighty suggestions or tips for achieving the state of the flow. The whole concept was a bit contradictory and vague.
Why is this even an influential book?. I wanted to like this book. I tried for two months to get all the way through it.
