"I cannot tell you how deeply impressed I
was while reviewing Flawless, by Lou Tartaglia.
Not only is it rich in earthy, healthy
psychology, but the style is delightful. It is a
book that not just certain people should read,
but one ~at everyone could benefit from, and
enjoy themselves in the process."
--Joseph F. Girzone,
author of the Joshua series
"Dr. Tartaglia jump-starts us toward growth
by understanding that character flaws are
defensive mechanisms. ("flaws don't occur
because people are bad, but because people are
hurting.'' ) He guides us to self-directed change
by distinguishing between feats of iron will and
the more powerful humility of willingness.
Flawless is a powerful, timely guidebook to a
healthier, heartier dance through life."
