If you are a perfectionist, or have characteristics of perfectionism, this book is for you. When reading non-fiction books, I always try to find at least one or two little nuggets to take with me and learn from. This book offers nugget after nugget after nugget. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, and it might teach you something about changing the way you view yourself and allow you to let up on being perfect, or at least give you some tools to work on it.
I like the way the book is organized where each chapter is a topic one might struggle with, because it was easy to see in the beginning what Jenkins would be discussing, and it will make it easy to refer back to on the days I am struggling with my perfectly made plans falling through or being transparent and vulnerable in relationships. My favorite quote from Jenkins is that of course God gives us things we can’t handle – that way we’ll get out of the driver’s seat! So funny, but true for control-freak perfectionists!
So, if you struggle with the impossible pursuit of perfection, give this book a try. It might not cure you, but it might help you make some changes!
