Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience

A secular book with powerful insight into how to live with your neshamah

Even though many of us have been on “summertime” for months already, the season still somehow brings along its own relaxed pace, and a bit more time and tranquility to linger over a good book. This season, we asked prominent readers for their book choices, focusing on surprise answers and unexpected selections:

There’s a famous self-help book that psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi wrote in 1990 called Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience. It’s one of the most comprehensive books on helping a person achieve optimal performance. It speaks to the concepts of mindfulness, of living in the moment, and what happens beyond the implications of career success. For a frum person, it can be extremely helpful in understanding how to be even more connected to Hashem in daily life. It’s a secular book with powerful insight into how to live with your neshamah.
