This is such an easy, entertaining read that if you're not very careful you might accidentally learn something. You see, Carty is sneaky like that. He is, at once, funny, introspective, vulnerable and charming, lovably fallible, but mostly honest. That is how his book reads. Whether it is his intention or not, he challenges his reader to be honest as well, with himself and others, and offers in this compilation hilarious, thoughtful, and encouraging anecdotes of his own personal experiences.

He's not preaching, he's just sharing. Someone once told me, "I hate religion, but I love Jesus," and I get the feeling Carty would agree. The human experience can at times be a cold and desperate one, but he reminds us that it doesn't have to be. So, enjoy his book like I did, but take his challenge to heart: be genuine, act out of love and not fear, and know that you aren't alone.

Easier read than done.

Excellent read. I highly recommend this book for anybody riding the roller coaster of human experience. Carty's style is humorously conversational and inviting, but his intentions are straightforward. He doesn't claim to have all of life's riddles figured out. This isn't a self-help book where Carty tells the readers the answers to their deepest problems. He simply offers a look into his unique experiences as a Christian, and more importantly, as a human. In each chapter Carty revisits moments in his own life, both good and bad, where he caught small glimpses of God's love, grace, and understanding. I'll definitely be re-reading this book in the near future, as it offers so many parallels to my personal life.

High Points and Lows was one of the best books I have ever gotten my hands on. My original intentions were to read the book a few nights in a row this week, and I sat down to read it tonight, and could not put it down! I finished it all in one night! Austin Carty is an excellent author, who produced an incredible read. I could not be more thankful to the person that introduced me to the book, as I will do to others. Inspiring book! Everyone should read it!

High Points and Lows is a fantastic book! I found the book to be very inspiring. Austin Carty talks about how many Christians allow pride to creep in their daily walk (myself included!) and before you know it, our focus is on ourselves instead of Jesus. I loved the book and highly recommend it!

Format: Paperback
As a fellow Survivor contestant, it was remarkable to see how he drew upon his experience and relate it to others. High Points and Lows does a great job at hitting home with a compelling message of self-discovery and of a relational faith. With his witty and entertaining anecdotes, Austin helped me paint a better picture of what it means to be friends with Jesus.

His story is for anyone who is trying to sort out the complexities of life. Big or small, complex or simple, Austin will provide insight and context to your everyday life. His compelling story made me feel as if I shared in his lessons and experiences, ultimately allowing me to come away from the text with an opportunity for introspection within my own life. Thanks Austin for sharing your story! It was truly a pleasure and an honor. Now, it's time for me to go get myself a Coke on the rocks....

As a former classmate of Austin's (middle school) I was so excited to purchase this book and read it just to see "how he did". I bought it the day before the release online through Amazon and received it a few days later. I began reading this book on Friday evening as the snow began to fall. I did not put the book down until I had read it cover to cover. It was so much more than I was expecting. I laughed...I cried...I remembered... To anyone (ecspecially from our generation) this book is incredible. It hit on so many feelings about society and God that I have had myself but thought that they were not the norm. Overall an awesome read and I cannot wait for the next book!!

Refreshingly real and humorously self-deprecating, Carty disassembles the bells and whistles of the Christian Religion Machine, stripping it down to what's ultimately at the Christian's core: faith. Simple faith. I love his honesty about church, prayer, and other relevant spiritual topics. And I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about his life and spiritual journey. For "Survivor" fans, Carty includes several "behind the scenes" exchanges with fellow castaways from his season, which I found fascinating and moving. It made me laugh, made me think, made me proud. I quickly reached the end of this book and wished I was only halfway through this journey. Such an excellent debut. Cannot wait for his next project!
