Editorial Reviews

Review

"Dr. Lombardo’s strategies will help you get out of your own way to create the life you want—one that's filled with happiness and success. I highly recommend Better than Perfect!"
Marci Shimoff, New York Times bestselling author of Happy for No Reason, Love For No Reason, and Chicken Soup for the Woman's Soul

“At The Oprah Winfrey Show, I met many transformational speakers and authors, and I can say with assurance that Dr. Lombardo's path to change is a phenomenal one. Let her show you how to get out of your own way, and get the most out of life!"
Candi Carter, CEO of New Chapter Entertainment and former Senior Producer of The Oprah Winfrey Show

"With the goal of helping people “before they need the couch,” clinical psychologist ­Lombardo explains how to combat perfectionism and stop striving for unattainable goals. She instructs using the acronym ­PERFECT: Postmortem your past; Evaluate your expectations; Reinforce new roads; Fail forward; Eliminate extremes; Create, don’t compare; and Transcend. In each category she provides insights, case studies, and worksheets to help readers draw up and practice realistic expectations in order to achieve fulfilled and empowered lives. Verdict: A solid starting point for those who suffer from perfectionist tendencies."—Library Journal

About the Author

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.
