Rate this:
A psychological investigation of the forces behind what makes us click with certain people, or become fully immersed in whatever activity or situation we're involved in. These kinds of peak experiences, when our senses are completely focused on the moment, are something that individuals--and companies--strive to achieve. After all, when you're "in the zone," you're happier and more productive. Why is it that we click in certain situations and with certain people, but not with others? Is there a way to create such peak experiences, whether on a date or in your job? According to Ori and Rom Brafman, there is. Weaving together cutting-edge research in psychology and sociology, the Brafmans explore the common factors present when our brain and senses are fully engaged, and identify five "accelerators" that increase the likelihood of these kinds of magic connections in our work and relationships.--From publisher description.

This book was really good but not great. You get great information but to be honest it seems like I could have gotten the information it offered from a well written article. There was too much to read that validated what was said. Again great points and great information just too much of unnecessary stories to read, one story per point would have been efficient in this book. Also it never goes into detail or gave strategy ideas on how to implement it in everyday life. Many different short stories of examples would have been nice.

Hands down the best book I have ever read. It combines math with a great fiction story, just a terrific read.
