Perfectionism: What's Bad about Being Too Good?by Miriam Adderholdt-Elliott
With help for Superkids, workaholics, type A's, straight A's, procrastinators, overachievers, and caring adults, this book explains the differences between healthy ambition and unhealthy perfectionism and gives straight strategies for getting out of the perfectionist trap--from recognizing the symptoms to rewarding yourself for who you are, not what you do.
