Book Review: THE NOTICER by Andy Andrews


Several residents of the small coastal town of Orange Beach, Alabama had reached dead ends. They’d given up. On success. On marriage. On life.

Enter Jones—a mysterious old guy who has drifted in and out of town for decades. He’s a peddler. Of perspective. And to each hopeless denizen of Orange Beach, Jones offers his friendship and advice. He has a gift of seeing through problems, a way to look into desperation and find fertile ground—find a different perspective.

Andrews conveys deep philosophies and simple wisdom in a story that reads like lighthearted play. The Noticer is a quick read, but one you’ll want to open over and over, each time finding the perfect tidbit to redirect your struggling thoughts to something positive. Something on which to build.

Don't expect this book to change your life. It won't. Instead, expect it to give you some things to think about.

After all, “whatever you focus upon, increases.” (pg. 13)

Get this one on your shelf. You’ll want to keep it handy. You may even want to pick up a couple of extra copies for gifts. That’s my plan.


The Noticer is also available on Kindle or audio.
