5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book, 25 Mar. 2014
By 
Adam A. Waterhouse (Southampton, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This is an excellent book. Pavel's analysis and insight into the cognitive errors involved in the attitude of mind of perfectionism is very impressive. But he manages to combine this with many, many practical exercises that help you to move beyond perfectionism towards a more sensible and realistic view of what we can or cannot expect from ourselves and from our life. Abandoning perfectionism, from this perspective, is not merely about making the decision to not place ourselves under undue stress through harboring unrealistic expectations. It is about recognizing the fundamental ignorance that lies at the very heart of the attitude of perfectionism and replacing it with a wiser, lighter, happier, and more compassionate attitude of mind towards both ourselves and others.

Highly recommended for anyone who has issues with perfectionism or who works with those who do.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Introduction And More To Perfectionism., 30 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Present Perfect: A Mindfulness Approach to Letting Go of Perfectionism and the Need for Control (Paperback)
Present Perfect ties Mindfulness together with improving one's perfectionist tendencies. I have really benefited from Somov's approach! At times, the exercises get tedious, but more and more, I come to understand them.
