A review of


The Psychology of Optimal Experience

Vest in Life

by David Meyer

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s now 30-year-old essay on achieving flow and awareness remains timeless and current.

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, PhD, gained fame and an international reputation from the central concept in this book. In this seminal, influential, perennially best-selling treatise, Csikszentmihalyi captures one of the deepest personal needs of contemporary people: making progress in their quest for harmony or, in his crystal-clear term, achieving flow.

Professor Csikszentmihalyi’s research-based essay on the nature of human consciousness and the obstacles people put in its path, first appeared, incredibly, in 1990 – but his presentation reads as if it were written tomorrow.
