Book Review: To Be Perfectly Honest

I was really looking forward to reading this book by Phil Callaway. He is one of my favorite funny authors (with books like, "Who put my life on Fast-Forward?" and "How to make life rich without any money.")

Also, the premise of this book, To Be Perfectly Honest, looked to be very interesting.

After reading the book, I am still 50-50 on it. The funny-factor was on the dissapointing side. It was written in journal-style, making it easy to pick up and put down (which I was hoping for a book I couldn't put down). Of his books I've read, this one does not rank in my top 5.

The preimse of the book was as interesting as I hoped, though he didn't take it in the direction I thought he would. I still found the idea challenging to live perfectly honest for one whole year. I find it challenging to think of all the areas we skip or fudge or exaggerate....that these too should be under a truth radar. That idea in itself was worth the read for me.

If you'd like to find the book to read, first I'd suggest your local library. Otherwise, you can find it on
