Perfectionism is when a person lives according to a set of self-defeating thoughts and behaviours aimed at reaching excessively high and unrealistic goals. It is a stressful, self-sabotaging and exhausting way to live, but can feel essential to the individual.

Anne Smith's book changed my life, pure and simple. The clear, compassionately expressed information in this short, easily read book helped me to understand myself, others and the way our society works in a way that years of therapy and self searching had not. I highly recommend it, and the Breakthrough at Caron program, for any one who wishes to live life more fully and happily.

I've spent the last 56 years engaged in critical self-talk and feeling no matter how much I did, it was never "good enough".

I kept this secret to myself, never telling anyone else, or believing it could change.

Researching my fears on the net, I finally found a name for it -

perfectionism. I didn't know there were two types - external (everything must look perfect) and internal (everything I do must be perfect - I can never be caught making a mistake). I have the internal type.

I then found this book by Ann W. Smith, who I knew of and respected for her work at Caron in PA. As soon as it arrived, I began reading it, and finished it the first day. Every page spoke the truth of my life, and gave me hope for a an end to the suffering.

Last night I discussed my "AHA!" moment with a support group, and was amazed at the percentage of folks who could relate. We were excited to find each other, and relieved to hear that we were not alone.

Right now I'm riding on a pink cloud of HOPE. For the first time, I truly believe things can change.

Ann gives a step-by-step approach to recovery, with descriptions of the time and effort it will take.

A great, life-changing book!

This book was a last minute order and it arrived very quickly. It was described in good condition and I would say it is in near perfect condition. This was a special request for a family member and I was able to fulfill it with the great price, condition and speed that this was done with. THANKS!

Interesting book about perfectionism. I browsed through it and found some helpful information. Helped me loosen up a bit - would recommend if you like browsing through books and getting helpful info.

Helped me along the recovery path for my perfection at any cost, and OCD. A must read for those with this problem, and for those who have to live with someone with it.
I loved that this book is as equally readable for people struggling with perfectionism and co dependency as it is for therapists.
