Blogging for Books: To Be Perfectly Honest

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.

My thoughts:

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.
