Reviews

"I love this book! A timely message for girls and women of all ages: perfection isn't just impossible but, worse, insidious. The prose is so clear, so honest -- you feel like you're sitting across from Reshma sharing stories." -Angela Duckworth, Christopher H. Browne Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of Pennsylvania and New York Times Bestselling author of Grit

"The perfect is not just the enemy of the good; the pressure to be perfect is the enemy of girls around the world. In this courageous, convincing book, Reshma Saujani shares a bold vision to free girls--and women--from the shackles of social expectations." -Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of ORIGINALS, GIVE AND TAKE, and OPTION B with Sheryl Sandberg

"For any woman who has ever thought to herself "I just can't..." or "I'm just not...," this eye-opening book will help you showing up every day as brave, not perfect changes how the world sees you, but more importantly, how you see yourself - and what you are capable of. This book is great reminder that having the courage to stare your mistakes and your imperfections in the face is one of the most overlooked sources of power." - Amy Cuddy, Harvard lecturer and Bestselling author of Presence
