    " Easier said then done. As usual. But actually, for a self-help book, this was pretty interesting. The research on perfectionism, and how it usually backfires was eye-opening, for sure. Of course, that doesn't mean I've been able to stop being a perfectionist, but there were some strategies in here that were worth the read. "

    " A helpful,invitingly written book which gives really usable strategies both for recognizing destructive, unrealistic perfectionistic behavior and for overcoming those aspects that are having a negative impact on you, your work, home, relationships, and decision-making. Aimed stronly at women, but the same principles would apply to anyone. "

    " Since I am one of those people that has a sign in my kitchen that says: "Save Time, do it my way" I must have the perception of trying to be perfect. Their is an assessment in the first part of th book to take and determine you level of perfectionism. I was only a 3 of possible 5. Here is the description: I expect perfection in some, but not all, areas of my life. I occasionally get sidetracked by unreasonably high expectations. Have strong ideas about the "right" way to do things but able to be realistic and flexible sometimes. I would say that is pretty accurate. I do feel that I have learned with age I do not need to be perfect in everything and try to concentrate on my natural talents. The subtitle to this book is : how to worry less and enjoy life more--haven't figured out how to worry less . . . yet! Still working on that piece. "
