I expected this book to cover methods of reaching flow in everyday life. It doesn't.
The whole book was trying to convince us that extreme sports people are amazing. I certainly don't need convincing of that, and I expect few people do. It's beyond amazing what some of these people have done.
If you want to read a book on stories of amazing human accomplishment, read this book. If you want help to achieve flow in everyday life, don't get this book.
This book changed my life. Flow is now a central feature of my creative, professional and personal life. Knowing what it is, how it works and most importantly how to get and stay in it has been incredibly impactful for me. It all started with this book.
