Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi Complete absorption in an activity that Csikszentimihalyi describes as 'Flow'. He believes it is one of the most enjoyable experiences one can have. By referring to case studies of controlled experiments, historical figures, philosophers and scientists throughout time, the author helps prove the point that 'flow' is a singularly productive and desirable state.

Video: Positive Deviance

A collection of videos on Positive Deviance.

Positive Deviance (PD) is an approach to behavioral and social change based on the observation that in every community there are individuals or groups of people (so called Positive Deviants) whose behaviours and strategies enable them to find better solutions to problems than their peers even though they have access to the same resources and face similar challenges.

In the international development and health sectors, PD has been used to address issues as diverse as childhood malnutrition, neo-natal mortality, girl trafficking, school drop-out, female genital mutilation (FGM), MRSA infections in hospitals and HIV/AIDS.
