Title: The Pursuit of Perfect
Author: Tal Ben-Shahar
Reviewer: Adam Zion (Philadelphia, PA, USA)
Rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Pursuit of Perfect deals with the inherent challenges facing anyone with the Sissifyan character trait of perfectionism. Ben-Shahar suggests adopting the approach of 'optimalism instead,' which is intended to replace the impossible goal of perfect with the more manageable one of accepting failures along the way to a higher goal. The book's frequent 'Time Ins'- effectively quick little exercises focusing on the subject of the current chapter- keeps the reader focused on how to apply the book's teachings to his or her own life.
