Publisher's Summary

A new story of common wisdom from the best-selling author of The Traveler's Gift. Orange Beach, Alabama is a simple town filled with simple people. But like all humans on the planet, the good folks of Orange Beach have their share of problems - marriages teetering on the brink of divorce, young adults giving up on life, business people on the verge of bankruptcy, as well as the many other obstacles that life seems to dish out to the masses. Fortunately, when things look the darkest - a mysterious man named Jones has a miraculous way of showing up. An elderly man with white hair, of indiscriminate age and race, wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt and leather flip flops carrying a battered old suitcase, Jones is a unique soul. Communicating what he calls "a little perspective," Jones explains that he has been given a gift of noticing things that others miss. "Your time on this earth is a gift to be used wisely," he says. "Don't squander your words or your thoughts. Consider even the simplest action you take, for your lives matter beyond measure...and they matter forever." Jones speaks to that part in everyone that is yearning to understand why things happen and what we can do about it. Like The Traveler's Gift, The Noticer is a unique narrative is a blend of fiction, allegory, and inspiration. Gifted storyteller Andy Andrews helps us see how becoming a "noticer" just might change a person's life forever.

Unfortunately Average

I had high hopes for this book based on the reviews of others. Ultimately, however, I found the book average at best. It did offer some insightful points of view, but they were too few and far between. Sometimes a writing style can be seemingly simplistic, and yet offer real elegance. Yet here simplistic style came across as amateurish. As for narration, the reader too frequently lost track of his characters' voices, leaving the reader confused as to which character was speaking. One of the main characters was Jones, an old man. His voice was particularly grating, as it came across as a caricature of a feeble, elderly man. In summary, it's not a terrible book, but neither is it particularly rewarding or insightful. Three stars.

The Noticer

Educational, thoughtful and entertaining as only Andy can write and tell it. With personal reflections of his own story this book is another home run.

You are more valuable than gold

Perspective is what one needs in times of turmoil. It is more valuable than diamond or gold.

An absolute hidden gem

This is such an amazingly powerful book. I have listened many of great books on here and this is if not one of my favourites than it is my favourite. If you’re trying to figure out what to listen to you will not find better then this.
I promise
