Book Review - The Noticer‏

Thanks to Thomas Nelson, I am able to share another book review with you!

Sometimes, All A Person Needs Is A Little Perspective
By Andy Andrews

This review is straight from the Thomas Nelson website, as I simply could not write a better description of this book - this review says it all:

"Perhaps no one knows what hitting rock bottom feels like better than author of The Traveler's Gift, Andy Andrews. Once homeless, directionless and living under a pier, Andrews is now a best-selling author and an in-demand speaker for U.S. presidents, top corporations, celebrities, and the U.S. military. With his latest book, The Noticer, releasing the week of April 27th, Andrews draws on his own remarkable true story to reveal the healing power of perspective."

A new story of common wisdom from the bestselling 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 beyondmeasure…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.

Also, launching April 7th, "The Noticer Project" is a worldwide movement to "notice" the five most influential people in your life - one of the core messages of The Noticer. Noticing those five people can be as private (just a letter or email) or as public (posting to your blog or Facebook page) as you choose, but the movement is meant to encourage us to step outside our busy schedules and avoid waiting until a wedding, graduation, or even funeral to take notice of the special, influential people in our lives.
