Great book, with wit, perfect sarcasm and underlying joy. Phil has a tight bond with God and it permeates through the pages and leaks out into my journey. It has made me think what would I do in those situations, and maybe I should try my own truth experiment. Well done!
I have to admit that I found this book quite refreshing and funny. Imagine challenging yourself to not tell a lie for an entire year. Talk about your hard things to do! We tell so many lies, and isn't that how comedians make their living? I was impressed with Phil Callaway and his writing style, not to mention the fact that he actually took the assignment seriously. I found myself sympathizing and seeing myself many times throughout the book. I found myself thinking about all the lies I tell without thinking about it. I think you will find this a delightful book, and it is a moment to just take a deep breath and truly think about your spiritual life. But don't worry. You'll do it with a smile on your face!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
I'm a big fan of humor and have a broad taste, but "To Be Perfectly Honest" kind of drones on. The concept of the book is very good and potentially very funny. However it is written in a journal format and there is a lot of filler and mundane unnecessary facts.
I'm sure that this book will strike a cord with some people, but I suspect they will be mostly people that are very familiar with the author and his stand up. I enjoy his sense and type of humor - its just a shame that there wasn't more of the funny and less of the mundane.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review
