Flow is an optimal state of being in which active concentration and absorbtion in creative activity leads to the sense of completely suspended time—one is alert, energized, and free of self-consciousness. Through an extensive amount of case studies, controlled experiments, and research of historical figures, this study illustrates that flow is a singularly productive and desirable state. Instructions are included for reaching a state of flow and using it to release anxiety and boredom, set goals, and redirect energy to take control of one's life. En la vida, cada persona siente de vez en cuando un estado de experiencia óptima, eso momentos en los que uno se siente poseído por un profundo sentimiento de gozo creativo, de concentración activa, de absorción en lo que se está haciendo. Como resultado de investigaciones sicológicas, este libro explica que el meollo de la “experiencia óptima” es un estado de conciencia al que denomina fluir. También explica cómo este fluir puede ser controlado y provocado, cómo uno puede ajustar sus energías y sus habilidades a los retos concretos de la vida.
