Publisher's Description

New York Times best-seller.

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," he 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 GiftThe Noticer is a unique narrative blend of fiction, allegory, and inspiration in which gifted storyteller Andy Andrews helps us see how becoming a "noticer" just might change a person’s life forever.

 

The story of Jones continues in The Noticer Returns, available now. The Noticer and The Noticer Returns also are available in Spanish, La maleta and Perspectiva.

Homecoming Magazine Review

It’s been said before that many of us move through life with eyes wide shut. Indeed, as we go from day to day, endless lists of to do’s to endless lists of not to do’s, it’s dizzying how the smallest details of life can pass us by, unnoticed, unmissed and uncelebrated. It is this very phenomenon that prompted Andy Andrews’ latest work. With characteristic insight and expected tact, he delivers a story inspired by truth, that offers at once perspective, wisdom and a healthy dose of hope for tomorrow and yesterdays not forgotten.

In this small, emotion-packed book, Andrews takes readers to small-town Alabama, where the simplicities of life’s complications all seem to converge in a tidal wave of ordinary hopelessness. Yet, despite the entourage of despair, an unassuming, unpresumptuous package of encouragement and a fresh take on things arrives in a man called Jones. Through home-spun honesty and the kind of perspective that makes the mustiest corner smell fresh and clean again, Jones offers our characters a new take on life and a brighter view for the days ahead. For readers everywhere, The Noticer is the kind of read that bottles up the expectation of New Years, the excitement of a birthday and delivers it all in a hearty dose of literary refreshment.

Publisher's Weekly

Bestselling inspirational writer and speaker Andrews (The Traveler's Gift) again blends fiction, allegory and inspiration and seasons it with a dash of autobiography. The result is a readable little tale of a mysterious old man named Jones—”just Jones, no mister”—who shows up in the lives of people in crisis. Jones brings the gift of perspective—he “notices” alternative ways to think about things. Some of what he says is common sense: “yes, sir” works better than “I guess.” Some of what he says counters received wisdom: do sweat the small stuff, because little things can make a big difference as surely as brushstrokes make up a masterpiece. The narrator “Andy” is personable and appealing, and Jones is mysterious and brusque enough not to be a cloying Pollyanna. The title is awkward and not everyone likes motivational books, but many readers do. Andrews brings a track record, wordsmith skills and, best of all, an imagination.
