In flow, everyday experience becomes a moment by moment opportunity for joy and self-fulfillment. Flow is the brain-child of a fascinating psychologist, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, a renowned social scientist who has devoted his life's work to the study of what makes people truly happy, satisfied and fulfilled. While much of the study of psychology investigates disorders of the human mind, Dr. Csikszentmihalyi takes a different route.

the poor pronunciation of simple words by the narrator was extremely distracting from the message and made it almost impossible to follow the though being presented

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who can understand English spoken with a thick Greek accent

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Agapi Stassinopoulos?

Anyone who can speak decent English with a normal accent and clear pronunciation

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disappointment and stress from trying to understand the words spoken with un-intelligible pronunciation.

Any additional comments?

An absolute waste of time. It takes so much energy to try to understand the words that are pronounced so badly that it is almost impossible to follow the message
