Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap


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.

From the Back Cover


Praise for Still Standing

“It took a twenty-two-year old beauty queen to remind America that there’s still such a thing as free speech and that we don’t have to kowtow to political correctness. That makes Carrie Prejean more than a beauty queen—it makes her a heroine.” - Rush Limbaugh

“No one can incite the rage of liberals like a sexy Evangelical Christian, and Carrie Prejean is the smoking hottest Evangelical of them all. Facing a frenzy of attacks from liberals for preferring ‘classic marriage’ to ‘new marriage’ in her answer at a beauty pageant, Prejean proved that there is no rock like the rock of Christianity. Carrie’s admiration for marriage—and her lovely backbone—triggered the liberals’ well-known ‘fight or flight’ syndrome. In this book, Still Standing, Carrie tells all.” - Ann Coulter

Not a particularlly well written book.

I felt like this book read fairly easily (I read it in it's entirety in under 6 hours at work, slow night), however Chapter 10 was a little dry for me.

That doesnt mean everybody has to like and agree with everything we say.

As a professional working with young women I have to say that this woman is an inappropriate role model for young women no matter how you look at her story. Her book is an example of what not to do to gain respect. Her lack of self awareness and her inability to understand her own manipulative nature clearly suggests a young woman with a disturbing point of view about life and its fairness or lack thereof. Ms. Prejean is 22 years old, has made serious errors in judgment and has yet to do anything at all to be proud of. I would rather she live her life, do something with it and then write a memoir about what she has learned. Rather we see a woman who has very little life experience who has used her body and her sexuality to get where she is today and is now claiming to be pure and Christian. Walk the walk Carrie, then tell us what you have learned. So far you have done nothing but take off your clothes and arouse yourself and your boyfriend while taping it and then not being truthful when participating in of all things, a beauty pageant. Holy Moly girl! What were you thinking and why should anyone consider you a role model? I don't get it.

The book itself is an empty attempt at self glorification with absolutely no real value. It is simply a rip off of consumer's money and a girl's attempt to hold on to another few minutes of false fame.

Format: Hardcover
The liberal bias that Carrie sets out to write about is certainly a valid issue for which a strong argument can be made, unfortunately Carrie fails to do that. Instead the book reads like a juvenile gripe that was sometimes uncomfortably embarrassing when the reader knows this is coming from a grown woman. Poorly articulated arguments, filled with hypocrisy (Carrie's conservative values apply to everyone else buy herself). Plus a lack of grace under fire- Carrie is unable to take a critical look on herself instead focuses on putting down everyone who she does not agree with. I wish this was a more though provoking book but instead Carrie Prejean's incoherent fragments of ideas are just a boring read.

I wasn't expecting much from this book and I was not disappointed. Although it is obvious from her interviews that Carrie does not have enough command of the English language to write a book, one would have thought her publisher would have hired a more eloquent ghost writer. This is the most self serving, blame it on everyone else tome I have ever read. A friend purchased this for me as a gag gift and I felt like gagging after reading it. Sorry Amazon, but wait till this ends up in the Dollar Store before purchasing it. It should be there in about 3 months.

I honestly wanted to give this book a try
However before I paid $15 for an ebook in Kindle (which I think is too much for any ebook) I ordered the "sample"
Boy am I glad I did. The writing and style was horrible. I felt like I was reading something from a high school essay.
Don't waste you money on this right now. Wait a month or so and Kindle will have it for 5.99 at most

Not a particularlly well written book. It really does feel like she walks into situations and then claims to be a victim. I think her 15 minutes are about up.

After reading a bit of this book and watching her on larry king, i have come to the conclusion that we as a society are attracted to really superficial fluff. All she is, is a beautiful face with absolutely no substance.

There is NOTHING christian about her.

A rather boring read, something you can pick up when u have absolutely nothing else to read.

Truly pathetic!

I did not buy this book but rather I found it left behind on an airplane and decided to give Ms. Prejean a chance. After skimming the book, I see why it was left on the plane. Before I comment on the content, I must say the writing and grammar contained in "Still Standing" made me wonder if Ms. Prejean passed Grade 10 English. She repeatedly uses phrases like "Irregardless of the truth..." without realizing that "irregardless" is not a word. She mentions "Looking to Jesus" so many times that you want to gag. Ms. Prejean is certainly entitled to her opinion on same-sex marriage and even though her response at Miss USA was awkward, she seemed stunned when the tide of popular opinion began to turn against her. What begins as a vapid, self-promoting memoir quickly becomes a cliche of "Victimology" as Ms. Prejean blames Perez Hilton, CNN, Katie Couric, and Dan Savage among others for "smearing my good name" and "robbing me of my dream of Miss USA." After topless photos and a sex tape surface, the pious Ms. Prejean appears on Larry King's CNN show and behaves like a 4th-grade girl. The nadir of this book is when Ms. Prejean claims to have been "Palin-ized" by the evil media. Both are bubble-headed bimbos who are using their "faith" to get rich. These offensive women need to get a life.

Format: Hardcover
. . .it's HER constitutional RIGHT, but when she is competing to represent Americans, and that includes homosexual Americans, she will be judged. Welcome to democracy, welcome to America. And I think the most offensive of what she said as her answer to Perez Hilton's question about Gay Marriage, was when she used the term "in MY country", as if impulsively, she thought that homosexuals are NOT part of HER country, like they are alien, from another planet. Nice fix though, as she stuttered and replaced it with "MY family" *sarcasm*. Just remember this, she was competing to represent Americans, not competing to win a car, just like any politician, if two people were running for president, anyone would have the right to choose who they feel would be fit to lead our country, and let's say one of them opposed the Christian religion, I highly doubt she would be voting for them, I personally wouldn't, but that is "MY" constitutional right. Oh but "it's freedom of speech" and "they have a right to their opinions" and "they were just speaking their mind and thoughts" their "convictions". Would that allow her to look past their opposition towards her own religion? I doubt it. And if she said yes, she would be a bold face liar. What's even more offensive, is that a noble person, a person of respect, would have at least apologized for offending the American people, but instead she chooses to run a campaign on how she did nothing wrong, by turning herself into the spokesperson for "conservative women", holding on to that last bit of false fame, and representing these women as supposed "victims" of political censorship, which in reality it goes both ways. I, myself, am a Republican, and I am even offended by her actions.Read more ›
