    A waste of paper and time

    This book should be listed in the fiction section. This woman is immoral and is a liar. It is sad to see that anyone would believe one word out of her mouth. Please do not purchase this. She is not a role model for anyone, let alone young ladies.

    Self Serving And Hypocritical

    One would have thought that her publisher would have picked a better ghost writer for this terrible, almost unreadable book. Boring beyond belief, the author refuses to take blame for her behavior of breaking contracts, posing nude, and appearing in a masturbation video (which she does not even cover in the book). Wait till this one appears on the shelves of the local 99 cent store, I give it a month or so to appear there.

    And this is what us Christians have to look up to !!!

    I browsed through the book and surprise surprise nothing meaningful was mentioned. Coming from a person that is in the news to make money out of the expense of the Christian way. This girl is trying so hard to milk her 15 minutes of fame, one controversial answer that doesn't really make you a Conservative when you lead an immoral life like she does. This made me not want to purchase the book because I am really not a hypocrite.

    Great book! To bad free speech is gone!

    Unlike some of the critics of this book who wrote reviews here, I actually read this book!

    It's a shame that someone's reputation can be attacked so viciously for simply stating their beliefs! If she doesn't believe the same way you do, grow up and get over it!

    This book is a marvelous book and shows the strength and integrity in one woman! She is an icon we can all look up to!

    Interesting and Revealing

    This is an interesting story. Carrie writes of her experiences dealing with the world of beauty pageants. This itself makes it interesting reading for those who follow these things. She has a real personal story to tell here and it is gripping. Her story includes a message that is inspiring as well. Altogether a book made for reading.

    Excellent Book on a controversial issue

    Still Standing is an excellent book and Carrie Prejean does a great job telling her side of the story. She does a great job defending her stance on the issue of homosexual marriage. In the book, Carrie, does a nice job of explaining how she accepts all people, even if she doesn't agree with their lifestyle . Carrie describes how we need to be loving of all people even if we dont agree with them on certain issues.
    This book is especially good for Christians to read because it illustrates the need to be loving and accepting of people, even if they do things we do not agree with. Carrie describes how, despite the personal attacks, she is able to forgive her critics and still stays grounded in her beliefs and convictions. It is a lessons that we can all learn from, both Christians and non-Christians. People are free to make the choices they want to in life, and it is not for Christians or non-Christians to attack them for how they live their lives. Finally, Carrie describes how she made mistakes in the past but has learned from them and strives to be a better person. That is a lesson we can all learn from.
    I highly recommend this book to both Christians and non-Christians because we can all learn something from this book.

    more from this reviewer

    I Also Recommend:

    carrie prejean was a former miss california until she was pick on from the mainstream media attack her and took her crown away because she is a republican.

    Carrie Prejean had no idea, when she walked down the stage to face her final question before the selection and crowning of Miss USA, that her hopes, dreams, and reputation were about to come crashing down around her under a torrent of media attacks.

    Her crime? To have answered honestly that for her-and for most Americans-marriage is defined as a sacred bond between one man and one woman. For the thought crime of saying this, Carrie Prejean went from being the likely winner of the Miss USA competition to being the certain loser. But worse, she would be subjected to a campaign of vilification, verbal abuse, and betrayal that did not even end with her being stripped of her title of Miss California. Here at last is Carrie's own story-the full story-about what actually happened. In Still Standing, you'll learn:

    * The behind-the-scenes truth of how and why Carrie's own pageant directors joined forces with the vicious smear campaign against her
    * The intimidation that kept many of Carrie's supporters quiet
    * How Donald Trump defended her-only
    to back down under pressure from the pageant directors
    * Why liberals target conservative women for special persecution
    * How political correctness is becoming a clear and present danger to free speech

    Carrie Prejean endured the hellish nightmare that the liberal media can inflict on anyone who disagrees with their agenda, but her faith, courage, and conviction have made her a role model for how we can stare down the bullies of political correctness and reclaim our God-given rights to freedom of speech, thought, and conscience.

    Still Standing - a fight against media smears

    The story of what happened to Carrie Prejean because she stood up to media bullies, and remained true to her beliefs is outstanding. For those raising a girl or young woman the principles outlined at the end of the book are like a catalog of how to do it right. This is a book that every young woman should read.

    Very Enlightening and Enjoyable Read

    I found the book to be a very good read. It is eye opening to hear the other side of the story. Was Ms. Prejean perfect no like all of us. Put she was attacked very badly for saying what she truly believed. Not in a mean or bad way. Seams like political correctness is a one way street for many. If you say the wrong thing the left will do what every they can to destroy you.
    I think she is a good example for Christians not perfect but none of use are. We all have mistakes in are past and will have them in the future. All we can do is learn from are mistakes, try/do not to repeat them and be better. And remember to center our lives around Jesus Christ.

    Alright

    I am not a fan of pageants but I am a fan of pop culture. While this book seems to be geared toward teen girls with Christian leanings, the message was clear: everyone should be able to express their opinion no matter how unpopular or politically incorrect. I have no problem with gay marriage or civil unions, but I do believe in free speech and Carrie Prejean's right to give an honest answer when confronted with a question regarding her personal beliefs. All women, whether they be nuns or porn stars, have a right to their voice and convictions.
