To be perfectly honest ~ Phil Callaway

This book is hilarious and an excellent fun read! The book is about how Phil decides not to lie for a whole year. It is in the setting of a diary type read, Day 1, Day 2 and etc. At the end of each chapter is a recap of the chapter and allows you to reflect on your own feelings.

I loved how Phil's wife asked for him to mow the lawn, he hates mowing the lawn and says "sure" then realized that he is on this mission to not lie for a year, and tells her "I don't want to, but I will". He mows the lawn and shares of his afternoon of mowing. Made me laugh out loud. Another funny is when his mother in law asks if he wants to come for dinner, he stops and says, how do I answer this one truthfully and still have a relationship with her? His story about the music each Sunday at his church, is something that I think all of us has had to go through. Each day is a great read and has you thinking about your own life and what you would or wouldn't say.

I started to read this book when I got it out of the mailbox, and couldn't put it down. I loved it! It came just in time, as having a bad day at work, this was a wonderful book to come home to, it just made me laugh and realize it isn't that bad of a day.
