New York Times best-seller.
A new story of common wisdom from the best-selling author of The Travelers 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 problemsmarriages 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. "Dont 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 Travelers Gift, The 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 persons 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.
Andy Andrews is a bestselling novelist, speaker, and consultant for some of the worlds most successful teams, largest corporations, and fastest-growing organizations. He is the author of the New York Times bestsellers The Noticer, How Do You Kill 11 Million People?, and the modern classic The Travelers Gift. For more information, please visit AndyAndrews.com.
Homecoming Magazine Review▼▲
In this small, emotion-packed book, Andrews takes readers to small-town Alabama, where the simplicities of lifes 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.
