    " I read this book to start dealing with my perfectionism. Originally recommended by my dentist, and now by myself. It's a straightforward read and I got through it relatively quickly. I loved the part about embracing aging. Encourages you to incorporate more optimalism into your life. Couldn't we all use a little more of that? "

    " Combining the the best of current thinking, this book is extremely helpful in navigating away from traps of perfectionism while providing practical advice for becoming an "Optimizer"--someone who understands that failure is essential to learning, that critique brings ideas and improvement, and that consciously determining what is "good enough" is the route to a satisfying life. Great thought questions, meditations, exercises woven in with research, stories and views from experts in many fields. "

    " The majority of my childhood was a complete pursuit of perfection till I got to high school. I was captain of every sport, learn to do everything a bit better. When I got to high school my lack of perfection caused a complete mental downward spiral into depression that lasted to adulthood. I read this book a couple years ago and it really changed my life and made me realize that I was ok where I was and that I didn't need to be "Perfect". "

    " Good mix of information. A lot of references to sources I've read in the past - but good to see them reinforced again. Deals with the concept of failure and perfectionism and the preferred way to handle some situations. not life changing - but an interesting read that has made me think about myself a bit differently.
