Perfectionists exist in every walk of life. While outwardly they appear to be very accomplished, they are often unhappy and unfulfilled. Perfectionists strive toward unattainable goals, and their behaviors can wreak havoc on both their physical health and their psychological well-being.

Timely and transformative, Better than Perfect by Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo offers step-by-step instructions for perfectionists to find balance and freedom. The book defines perfectionism in easy-to-understand terms, offers simple assessment tools, and shares case studies of Lombardo’s patients to highlight the condition. Also included are practical exercises and suggestions for behavioral changes, including seven ways to overcome perfectionism that range from choosing passion over perfection to remembering you’re more than what you do.

With the ultimate goal of helping readers achieve happiness and prosperity without the stress of making sure things are “perfect,” Better than Perfect is a fundamental guide for all perfectionists seeking new, fulfilled, and empowered lives.

About Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo

Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo started her professional career as a physical therapist after getting her master’s degree at Duke University. It was then that she realized that every goal we have—whether it is related to our bodies, relationships, jobs, or lives—requires a significant mental edge in order to achieve it.

In her quest to help people actualize their dreams, Lombardo went back to school to get her PhD in clinical psychology. Wanting to help people “before they need a couch,” she now coaches, consults, and speaks to groups about how to achieve their desired results.

Lombardo is a highly sought-after speaker and media consultant who has been honored by giving a prestigious TEDx talk. She is frequently interviewed by today’s top media outlets, including Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, Money magazine, Health, USA Today, MSNBC, CNN, and National Public Radio. She has made multiple appearances on The Today Show, has a monthly column in Better Homes & Gardens, and is a contributor to The Huffington Post.

Lombardo is also the author of A Happy You: Your Ultimate Prescription for Happiness. She lives in the Chicago area with her husband and two children.
