To Be Perfectly Honest

Written in a diary form, To Be Perfectly Honest is an account of Phil Callaway's attempt to say nothing but the truth for 365 days. The basic purpose was to be a humorous but challenging book on telling the truth. The concept behind this book is a good one. Honesty is a lost character today, because most people believe that truth is relative. This is an issue that needs to be addressed and written about, but I don't think the mission was accomplished in this book. Being 100% honest ALL the time is a big challenge and it makes sense that  Mr. Callaway spent a lot of the book recounted his failures.
Though I was not extremely impressed with this book I would still encourage you to watch this video.
