Flow: The psychology of optimal experience by Mihali Csikszentmihalyi

Hungarian psychologist, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi explores his now famous theory of optimal experience, called flow. Flow is the state of mind in which people are so involved in an activity, that nothing else seems to matter. The best moments often occur when the body and mind are stretched to the limit in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile. Such experiences do not necessarily occur when circumstances are ideal or are pleasant at the time they occur. It is more than simple happiness. In the midst of chaos, with practice and discipline, it is possible to find serenity (and meaning.)
