At some point in life, all of us have felt an experience of indescribable happiness or what most people refer to as being “in the zone”. In this book which is a classic in its field, the author Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi examines how different people create meaning in life and achieve an ongoing state of satisfaction and sense of fulfillment. This book is not a step-by-step self-help guide to achieve happiness. If achieving happiness had such a recipe, the world would be a much happier place. As the author says “Contrary to what we usually believe, the best moments of our lives are not the passive, receptive, relaxing times … The best moments of our lives usually occur when a person’s body or mind is stretched to the limits in a voluntary moment to achieve something difficult and worthwhile. Optimal experience is thus something we make happen … For each person there are thousands of opportunities, challenges to expand ourselves.”
