The Evolving Self book. As a fan of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's Flow, i was rather dissappointed with this book.

In the bestselling Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi introduced a radical new theory of happiness. But where, Csikszentmihalyi asks, do we find such faith at the twilight of the second millennium, when traditional religions have lost much of their force and relevance, when the prospects of genetic engineering and atomic annihilation present us with profound moral dilemmas?

The Evolving Self: Psychology for the Third Millennium, A. Watching a good play or reading a stimulating book also seems to produce the same mental state. I called it flow, because this was a metaphor several respondents gave for how it felt when their experience was most enjoyable-it was like being carried away by a current, everything moving smoothly without effort.

Excellent read I think I like this book even more that Flow because it provides more information about past events that collide with the present, its a great read, I recommend it.

Conscientiously explains that we are biologically wired for survival, culturally influenced and internal information processors. These three sources of motivation compel us to act and develop in particular ways.
Authentic meaning and purpose can only develop when we realize each one of us have personal options above and beyond what our biology, our culture or our individual past might compel us, or mindlessly have us do.
In a culture that has devolved into materialism and immediate gratification as its "Tower of Babel" I fear the "helicopter and feel good generation" will not develop the internal motivation or skills to seek further than what's biologically and culturally driven and immediate.
I would recommend this book to anyone who seeks meaning, flow and peace of mind.

Don't Delay - READ THIS BOOK TODAY!

I have a personal discipline. For every 5 books I read, one of those books MUST be at least five years old. Once again, I have been immensely blessed by this discipline.

What honestly startled me about this book, published in 1993, the unfinished business that remains to be realized is both profound and poignant. It's simply that prescient.

The following are a few tidbit excerpts. As you read them, please consider their pertinence today:

"At this point in our history it should be possible for an individual to build a self that is not simply the outcome of biological drives and cultural habits, but a conscious, personal creation. That self will be aware of its freedom and not fear it." P. 4.

The point is not to be browbeaten into the belief that you are powerless. It is in the interest of those who control our energy to make it seem that the status quo is natural, right, and impossible to change. It is in our interest to figure out that this is not always true. P. 105.

Having learned that boredom and worry are the norm in the family, in the school, and in the community at large, children give up curiosity, interest, the desire to explore new possibilities, and become used to passive entertainment. P.203.

Most novel ideas or behaviors are generated by people who try out new things because they are bored by old routines, or because they are confounded by chaos. P. 255.

If you're bored by old routines and/or curious or concerned about chaos in this world, this book is for you.

One of my favorites YTD in 2011 --- even though it was published in 1993.

I am going to try to read this book again. No flow reading this book- very boring in the 1st 30 pages (read it twice). I hope I don't end up donating th the book.

"We are accustomed to the idea of choosing the things we pay for (cars, homes, dresses, politicians), but not the memes that make up our cultural environment. For instance, most people take a fatalistic attitude toward the way moral values change, or artistic styles develop, as if influencing such things were out of their hands. Yet culture changes only if we make it happen, or allow others to change it. And culture will shape the way people in the future will think. Are there some values you would like to see part of tomorrow’s culture, such as family values, work values, attitudes toward the environment? What can you do, realistically, to influence this?"

I first read this shortly after it was released, but I often pick it up to breeze through and explore the questions. Csikszentmihalyi delves deeply into evolutionary psychology and really makes me think about cultural norms and how they have influenced my life. I'm a huge, huge fan of his writing, even considering a PhD in Social Psychology as a result of reading his work. Highly recommended, especially for a salon-style reading group.

Great job thanks!
It makes you ask yourself important questions instead of just going along with your daily routine - makes you think out side of the box
