To Be Perfectly Honest by Phil Callaway
How would your life change if you were perfectly honest with everyone for an entire year? Phil Callaway, a Christian humorist, was challenged by his editor to do just that – to always tell the truth for 365 days…and to write a book about it. So he did.
You have the combination of a Christian comedian (no off-color jokes here) who writes well and a vow to tell everyone the honest-to-God truth for a year. What’s not to love?
Seriously, this was a great book. Callaway writes it in journal style with the posts titles chronicling the days of his 365 day experience (i.e. Day 257). He writes in a wry humor style that kept me laughing the whole way through.
Not all of the book is laugh-out-loud funny, though. During that year, he experienced dealing with his mother’s dementia, a friend who had maligned him and a friend of his child who had an addiction. Even a comedian has to deal with the bad stuff in life.
I really enjoyed reading this book and am excited to see what other things Phil Callaway has written.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
I was provided a complimentary Kindle version of this book to review through the Blogging for Books program. All opinions are my own.
