Whoppers, fibs, little white lies….everyone tells them at some time or another. Some people would maintain that society would fall to pieces if we all told the honest truth! Phil Callaway takes his editor’s challenge to spend an entire year telling the truth for a book and “To Be Perfectly Honest” is the delightful result! Within the first few pages, I was enjoying those “laugh-out-loud, Honey, you have to hear this” moments.
Phil Callaway is witty, endearing, mischievous and funny. His pranks and smart remarks keep the narrative lively but he doesn’t shy away from tackling some tough subjects. His year of living truthfully is not all smooth sailing and his struggles become common ground inviting the reader into his story. The best thing about this book is that Phil is not a “saintly” guy. He’s the class clown, the guy who is just a little more “out there” than the rest of us and he’s often the guy who says what the rest of us wish we could say.
I can truthfully give “To Be Perfectly Honest” my highest recommendation. Would I lie to you?
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review as part of their “Blogging for Books” program.
