Coaching perfectionists is a difficult task, but Karen White captures the listener's ear in her delivery of the authors' recommendations. Like a good friend with the best intentions, White cajoles the perfectionist to rethink, re-evaluate, and use other strategies presented here to let go of the quest for a faultless existence. Although some of the quizzes are difficult to manage while listening and doing another task, listeners would be well served to find a notebook and pen to calculate their own "perfectionist quotient." White deftly characterizes the real-life case studies in which interviewees describe how they have battled unrealistic expectations. This worthwhile examination of self offers practical techniques to calm the inner perfectionist. D.L.M. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2008]
