Portrait of Thomas Curran
Book Cover for The Perfection Trap by Thomas Curran

What if we were told that our obsession with achievement is a trap? That everything we’ve been led to believe about traditional success is a lie? That good enough really is good enough?

Burnout, anxiety and depression are at record levels, driven by a combination of workplace competition, the world of social media, the quest for elite credentials and helicopter parenting. Join author and broadcaster Emma Gannon and acclaimed LSE professor and the world’s leading expert on perfectionism Thomas Curran in conversation with writer and broadcaster Claire Cohen on how to create a culture that celebrates the joys of imperfection.

Reminds us that it is what we are, not what we do, that will always ultimately count.’ – Alain de Botton
