Openness, honesty, and transparency are three traits I value highly. But just what does honesty really mean?
Is it always telling the truth – as the author sought to do for an entire year?
And then again, what does “telling the truth” really mean? Does it mean opening up oneself to others and answering their questions – whatever they may ask?
Does it mean going into great detail when a simple answer would suffice?
Does it mean not kidding around – difficult when humour is one’s line of work.
In “To Be Perfectly Honest,” the author journals about his day-to-day experiences – and the things he discovered about truth-telling and about himself.
At the risk of sounding cliche…I laughed. I cried. Really, I did.
I would recommend this book to Christians and non-Christians alike. The openness and honesty is sure to be appealing – and challenging.
A very good read.
