Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

One of the classic psychology texts exploring the experience of flow: the feeling of complete absorption in a task or activity that you enjoy and are good at.  The sense that time can both stand still – and fly by in an instant.  Being ‘in the zone’.

This is a thoroughly researched and absorbing look at how we attain peak states in the things that we love, and what it means for the progress of ourselves as individuals, and society in general.
