"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
