Publisher: HarperCollins Christian Audio


Straight Up! by Trent Shelton is an honest and practical guide on how to become the best You you can be. He gives advice on several different topics (such as relationships, trauma, depression, and fear) and uses his own life and the experiences of others to show how you can learn to do and be better in your own life. The book and audiobook are divided into 64 sections (aka lessons) that are straight up, unfiltered, and full of honesty.

My Thoughts:

I want to start out by saying that I ADORE this audiobook and highly recommend you to listen to this rather than read it – at least the first time around. I have a feeling that I personally will be listening to this several more times and maybe even buy a physical copy as well to take notes in. I am so glad that Trent chose to read this himself because it adds a whole new level to the honesty and truth of his statements. While he does stumble over a word here and there, that actually adds even more to the authenticity of his message. I listened to the majority of this book during workouts at the gym and found it extremely motivating, both for the gym and for the rest of my life. It put a new perspective on several aspects of my life currently and I cannot wait to put some of his suggestions into action. I liked that each chapter was relatively short because it allowed me to finish each section quickly and reflect on it before moving onto the next one.
