Medlemmers vurdering

E
Elven – 31.07.2006

– Begrepet flow har for lenge siden blitt tatt inn i psykologien, og er et ord som betegner en tilstand der vi blir oppslukt av det vi driver med: Man kommer i "sonen", og alt synes å gå av seg selv. I denne boken utbroderer forfatteren, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, dette begrepet. Man trenger ikke noe grunnkurs i psykologi for å skjønne hva han snakker om, men boken er en veldig fin bok å lese før man begynner på psykologistudiet, for her berøres det meste. Bokens styrke er også dette vide perspektivet, som favner alt fra yoga til modernisme. Svakheten er at alt for mange elementer skal beskrives i detalj, og gjerne utdypes ytterligere med intetsigende anekdoter. Disse utgjør en stor del av boken, og gjør at man lett kan hopp over en del av de 300 sidene.
