Publisher's Summary

It's only natural to want to avoid making mistakes, but imperfection is a part of being human. And while perfectionists are often praised for their abilities, being constantly anxious about details can hold you back and keep you from reaching your full potential.

In this fully revised and updated second edition of When Perfect Isn't Good Enough, you'll discover the root cause of your perfectionism, explore the impact of perfectionism on your life, and find new, proven-effective coping skills to help you overcome your anxiety about making mistakes. This guide also includes tips for dealing with other perfectionists and discussions about how perfectionism is linked to worry, depression, anger, social anxiety, and body image. As you complete the exercises in this book, you'll find it easier and easier to keep worries at bay and enjoy life - imperfections and all.

Nice. Simple and easy listen.

Easy and nice listen. He digs the topic in-depth.

Gives a lot of insight into what works for different people. I would appreciate it more if he removes the part where he puts a lot of names of medications. So many medical terms there.

I will recommend to any one who wants to be better and improve in life.
