That is how his book reads.
Louis Grant Bowles
I began reading this book soon after I purchased it today, and I was unable to put it down until I had read it cover to cover.
M. Carnes
Austin is completely down to earth and it's very easy to relate to his personal stories throughout.

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.

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
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!

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....

High Points and Lows is a must read. Austin Carty has written a book that you can not put down. Reading this book is like sitting down with Carty at Starbucks and hearing of his personal struggles, triumps and challenges of living a Christian life in a not so Christian world. After reading the book, I found myself examining my life and my actions and hoping to become a better person, but most importantly, a better Christian.

This book is amazing! It was so interesting and inspiring that I couldn't put it down! I also haven't stopped talking about it since I read it and have recommended it to anyone who will listen! Carty lets you in on his own experiences as a Christian, both good and bad. Anyone who reads this book will find something that they can relate to, or if you're like myself, you might just be in awe that someone felt the same way you did as you tried to walk through this life and understand what it truly means to be a Christian. I will read and reread this book for many years to come and use it as a reference in my daily walk with Jesus. Read it, you will be so glad you did!!!!
