Curran and Wallace Endorse Flawed

Flawed: Why Perfectionism is a Challenge for Management has been endorsed by two acclaimed authors and stakeholders of The Mattering Movement: Dr. Thomas Curran (Associate Professor at the London School of Economics and author of The Perfection Trap) and Jennifer Breheny Wallace (journalist and author of Never Enough).

Flawed is one of those precious books that comes along just at the right moment. It’s well-researched, chock-full of illuminating case studies, and offers a treasure trove of clinically-informed strategies to manage both our own perfectionism and the perfectionism of other people. Like spending time with a close friend, by the end of it I was sad to put it down. It’s the only book on perfectionism that business leaders will ever need.
