Product description


Csikszentmihalyi eloquently argues that living fully in the here and now requires that one heed the lessons of the past--New York Times Book Review

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi has a genius for illuminating phenomena that perplex most behavioral scientists. In this brilliant synthesis, he shows how all of us can enhance our work, our play, our lives.--Howard Gardner, author of Multiple Intelligences

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi is a man obsessed by happiness.--Richard Flaste, New York Times Magazine

This famous psychologist of 'peak experience' returns to the themes of his 1990 classic, Flow, how to reach the peak through focused energy, and how humans mark the universe in unique ways-but this time the explanation is shorter, sharper, and far more accessible.--Utne Reader
