Review

Rating: 6

Relating his idea of “flow” to the broader context of businesses and what makes them run smoothly, Csikszentmihalyi examines a number of different businesses and discusses why they work well. The common underlying ideas show a great deal of commonality in the most successful businesses. The book focuses on work having purpose, but makes some digressions into religion without really covering it well and winds up feeling somewhat superficial in that regard. While there’s plenty of food for thought, the book feels more like a magazine-sized research study blown out to the size of a book.
