It's surprising how dishonest we are - even in trying to live truthfully. Little "white lies" so often work their way into our lives, without us even noticing. This book will really get you thinking about how truthful you really are.
I loved how Phil also really had to use tact in telling the truth. He didn't blast people with exactly what he felt, but he thought his feelings through in order to present the truth in a way that would be accepted (when at all possible).
This book was certainly a challenge. I'll possibly leave you a little bit uncomfortable. However, it's worth the read - and the ensuing food for thought might just do wonders for your integrity and character.

It turned out to be well-written and really quite engaging. I read the whole book in a day (it's fairly short), and truly enjoyed it.
It's not an epic tale or anything groundbreaking; however, the message of forgiveness and reconciliation is beautifully presented in story form, and the author has done a wonderful job weaving his personal experience into the book.
