Great in the beginning, peters out toward the end--

I was really excited to read this book. The first half of the book was so interesting that I was in flow as I read about flow itself. I must say it was unreal. The concept of flow is a very powerful and useful framework to look at what makes people happy, and looking at myself, I see how I have been driven all my life to achieve as much flow as possible. It was one of those instances where you realize something about the world and yourself for the first time because a new concept becomes available to you. I knew instinctively what I was trying to achieve, but having read a whole book on the concept of what I was trying to do, it's all the more clear what and why and how I was going about doing all my life.

A very illuminating read.
