"Austin is an outstanding^young man! He inspires us to dream bigger, reach higher and love deeper. His^story deserves a wide hearing." Max Lucado

"I am^very impressed with Austin Gutwein's story in Take Your Best Shot. This book^is filled with words of encouragement, inspiration, and hope. It's guaranteed^to motivate you into action." Pat Williams, Senior Vice President, Orlando Magic

^^
"I^spent a day with Austin and his family and found them inspiring. His story, I^believe, challenges us all. The first thing I thought as I drove to the airport^was: What was I doing when I was twelve? And^then, of course, the next thought: What,^exactly, am I doing now?" John Larson, Former NBC National^Correspondent

^^
"When^people ask me how they can possibly make a difference fighting a problem as big^as 'global poverty', I tell them about a boy named Austin who, like David, stared Goliath in the^eye without flinching. This young man has done more to make a difference in the^lives of children orphaned by AIDS than most American churches, let alone^individuals. If you are older than 10 and you haven't yet done your part to^change the world, read Take^Your Best Shot and be^inspired. Austin Gutwein shows us the way".??Richard^Stearns, President, World Vision US, Author of The^Hole in Our Gospel

"When^people ask who has most impacted me over the last year, without hesitation I^can say Austin Gutwein and the story of Hoops of Hope. I am around amazing^leaders all the time, and Austin rivals all of them. Austin^is my friend. And Austin^is one of my heroes. You can't be around Austin^or the amazing work of Hoops of Hope without being deeply impacted and^inspired. Trust me. Do yourself a favor and read this book and the incredible^story. But once you do, be prepared to be changed and challenged. You'll see^the world and your significant role in helping those less fortunate in an^amazingly fresh way."??Brad^Lomenick, Executive Director, Catalyst

^^
"Austin's^story is one of modern day heroism. He represents a new generation that can^carry us all into the twenty-first century: a world of hope, peace and selfless^love. Austin^completely inspires me."??Daniel^Biro, Hawk Nelson
