FLOW was recommended to me by a colleague/fellow musician of mine as well as my doctoral committee co-chair a couple of years ago. I wish I had gotten it then and read it. I have only read the first 20 or so pages but it is right on with what I had been mulling about in my own thoughts.
The material is presented in a clear and concise manner and in plain language so that anyone and everyone can understand.
It looks at the big picture through the smaller, everyday events of our lives. It promotes and demonstrates the value of individual choice and the strenth of individual discipline. It is not a 'music' book, but an 'everyman's' book. The author's own broad experience and knowledge of all types of lives bring in everyone and is very encouraging, comforting, thought-provoking and so much more worth our time than all the many useless and time-wasting/life-wasting activities in which we engage ourselves.
I look forward to what is beyond my first 20 pages!
