Well paced and easy to listen to, this self-help book reaches out to those who are not easy on themselves. The aim is compassion for the person who cannot stop striving for perfection. The listener feels co-author Alice Domar's warmth as she narrates. Delivered in an inviting and empathetic voice, each chapter seems like an individual session with the psychologist. Yet some of the flippant-sounding solutions to high-stress situations, expressed in Domar's casual tone, makes one wonder if she takes some of her solutions seriously. For the most part, however, both narrator and material sound genuine and leave the listener feeling supported and encouraged to mull over the suggestions for changes.
