"TO BE PERFECTLY HONEST" is one of the funniest books I have read from Phil Callaway. If it doesn't make you laugh out loud, nothing will. Buy it. You won't be sorry.

Format: Paperback
2012 welcomed me with a rip-snortin' head cold. Couldn't stay tucked in bed, either, as my hubby and I needed to travel home from Alberta on New Year's Day. So you can imagine what a peach I was on this particular travel day. You'd be right, too, except I'd been given an autographed copy of Phil Callaway's latest book, To Be Perfectly Honest. Now, if presented with the challenge of telling the truth for a year in a public forum, I wouldn't exactly jump at the chance, would you? Which begs the question, why not? Are we habitual liars? If not, it should be easy. Right?
Intrigued, I offered to start reading the book aloud as soon as the sun came up, about an hour after our departure. I didn't think I'd last very long, given the stuffed up sinuses and all. But we found it so delightful, I kept going...and going...and we were disappointed when we ran out of daylight around 5:00 and had to put the book away. I have since finished reading it and my driver is working on it. Not while driving.
I highly recommend this book for its thought-provoking self-disclosure, heartwarming tales, and sheer entertainment value.
It will not, however, cure your cold.

I found this book nowhere near as funny as the other reviewers led me to beleive. I struggled to finish it.

Format: Paperback
Canadian humorist and Christian speaker Phil Callaway has written a diary documenting his year of living truthfully. His goal was to be entirely honest about everything to everyone and then to document the consequences. If his wife asked if a pair of jeans made her look fat, what would he say? If hosts asked how much he enjoyed dinner, how would he respond? I was prepared for a story about damaged relationships, a broken marriage and a year's worth of self-incriminating flagellations, but To Be Perfectly Honest: One Man's Year of Almost Living Truthfully Could Change Your Life. No Lie. disappointed in not being funny enough.

The blurb on the back cover, however, seemed appealing:

"Phil promised to tell the truth for an entire year, and he wasn't joking. Twelve months later, his journal was crammed with successes, near-successes, and outright failures. During his year-long experiment with veracity, he made a disastrous financial investment, fielded hundreds of intrusive questions from friends and strangers, attended a thirty-year class reunion, and waded into possibly the most revealing--and hilarious--situations he has ever documented."

The book certainly started off as a hilarious page-turner. I was laughing out loud for the first twenty pages. The funniest parts at the start of To Be Perfectly Honest were the moments when he shared his plan with his friends:

"I mentioned the book idea to friends who have known me for years. I said, 'I am considering taking a truth vow.' Without exception, their eyebrows shot up to their bangs, though one said, 'Isn't that a bit like giving up arson for Lent?'
"Yeah, sort of. But that didn't stop me from accepting the challenge. And in no time I encountered the first major drawback.
