Perfectionism is an insidious thing that can take so much from us, not only many lost opportunities but also the pleasure to live life to its fullest. Starting with the identification of the problem, the author explores its manifestations and how one can deal with them in a pragmatic way. All in a very readable language where the main points are never lost. The graphics also provide many visual clues.
Both adults and teenagers can benefit from this book. Teenagers will have the unique opportunity to discover a problem when its solution is most readily available. Adults may be surprised to want to keep their own copy of this book. Yet you could simply not expect less. It is an outstanding book in content, form and delivery.
