"To Be Perfectly Honest" by Phil Callaway Book Review

Summary (from goodreads):
Would I Lie to You? Not This Year. 

Veteran author and speaker Phil Callaway is no stranger to daunting challenges. He has been laughed at—repeatedly—by large crowds of people from Halifax to Hong Kong. He fathered three children in three years, spent much of last year on airplanes built by the lowest bidder, and flipped an out-of-control ATV, which doesn’t mean he sold it for a profit. So who better than Phil Callaway to boldly accept a challenge that would make the average person run and hide? 

Phil promised to tell the truth for an entire year, and he wasn’t joking. Twelve months later, his journal was crammed with successes, near-successes, and outright failures. During his year-long experiment with veracity, he made a disastrous financial investment, fielded hundreds of intrusive questions from friends and strangers, attended a thirty-year class reunion, and waded into possibly the most revealing—and hilarious—situations he has ever documented. 

Find out what happens when a follower of Jesus does his level best toalways tell the truth. There is no doubt you’ll be entertained. But don’t be surprised if you are left with a question: how might your life be changed if you sold out to the truth—with no exceptions?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have to admit that I found this book quite refreshing and funny.  Imagine challenging yourself to not tell a lie for an entire year.  Talk about your hard things to do!  We tell so many lies, and isn't that how comedians make their living?  I was impressed with Phil Callaway and his writing style, not to mention the fact that he actually took the assignment seriously.  I found myself sympathizing and seeing myself many times throughout the book.  I found myself thinking about all the lies I tell without thinking about it.  I think you will find this a delightful book, and it is a moment to just take a deep breath and truly think about your spiritual life.  But don't worry.  You'll do it with a smile on your face!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
