To Be Perfectly Honest

This book was quite fantastic. I really enjoyed Phil Callaway's account of one year of living truthfully. The book is written like a journal, so I read a few entries each day when I had spare moments. His account is so human, so very honest, and so very relatable.

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.

Disclaimer: I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah through Blogging for Books - their book review program. I wasn't required to post a positive review. These are my own opinions on this book.
