...truly! We spend all of our lives WANTING - thinking something out there will make us happy. If we have the perfect body, skin, man, career, kids, whatever...THEN we will be happy. I have truly spent my whole life believing this, that if I could somehow make myself BETTER, I'd be happy. This book is like a thump on the head. Hell-oooo??? No one is perfect, and the people who appear perfect, well, no one wants to be around them anyway! This book makes you realize that the GOOD stuff is already here. Cherish your friends and family. Be a real person. Be yourself!

I was the epitome of the woman who strives for perfect! Lisa McLeod's book got me thinking about what might happen if the socks in the sock drawer weren't organized by color and if I didn't vacumn at least twice a week. Imagine . . . more time doing things that I really want to be doing!! It's not rocket science, but Lisa makes this topic really funny and entertaining. I think thousands of women will identify with what she has to say. It was almost as if she was talking directly to me. I'm recommending this book to my book club. I can only imagine what a great post-holiday discussion this will make. FLASH: Who cares if every package doesn't have a unique bow? I'd rather spend time having a few friends over to enjoy the tree. (And, we'll just close the door on the messy rooms!)
A big thanks to Lisa for getting me off the perfect thing and focused on what's really important. (And, by the way, my husband thanks you, too!!)

This is a must-read book. It's funny, meaningful, and reminded me of what's really important. One definite is to tear up my "should list" forever. I have a teenage daughter and I can't wait to give it to her. Young girls feel such a need to be perfect and I think this book will help them gain some perspective. After all, who likes "perfect" people anyway?

Funny, easy read - kept me laughing the entire time! Helped me realize that I should just give up trying to be perfect and think about what really makes me happy. My priorities have now changed and I feel so much better about myself and my own imperfections. Every time I start to revert back to my old self, I pick up the book again for a quick laugh and reality check. I recommend it to all women that are trying to be perfect or have already given up on it and need some reassurance that they are on the right track to happiness! Or for men that want their women to slow down and enjoy life a little more!

I'm giving this book to all my friends - it's fantastic! Lisa McLeod is the voice of her generation -- a voice that says, "For God's Sake, I'm Exhausted, The Laundry Can Wait!" Forget Perfect is a wonderful, laugh-out-loud mirror for women - wives, mothers, daughters and friends everywhere who have put themselves last on their own to-do list. It's one of those rare books that makes you reevaluate what's really important, and helps you to realize that being perfect doesn't make people like you more, it makes them like you less. A wonderful book!

I recommend this book to all of the other twenty-something female professionals who are struggling to be perfect for their bosses, families, friends and partners all at the same time. It is impossible, and it was great to read that I don't have to be Superwoman! I'm preparing to get married, and this helped me look at my life and see how I want it to be. It has also helped me find my own definitions of success and happiness. The book is easy to read and fun to talk about with girlfriends!

My girlfriend makes herself and me crazy by always having to be perfect and trying to do everything perfectly. I try hard to listen and understand but most of the time I just can't seem to get into her going on and on about things that I don't find very important. She gets mad, I get mad and we seem to waste alot of time and evergy on this stuff. We both love books and when I saw this one, I thought she might like it. When she told me that one of the things she got out of this book is that women are better off doing alot of their talking with each other and that what men really want more of is sex, I decided this book was one of the best presents I've ever chosen.

I absolutely loved this book and I recommend it to all women. It's funny and it really gave me a new perspective. Instead of just telling me what to do, it helped me figure it out for myself. The author said in the intro that one of her goals was for the reader to get a ten year jump in perspective and that really did happen for me. I really loved the quizzes. Glad to know I'm not the only one that isn't an "Earth Mother, Commander of the Universe, or Princess of the Palace."
