"The Noticer" by Andy Andrews
What happens to a town, when an old man passes through occasionally, dispensing words of wisdom? That is the premise of the new book by Andy Andrews, “The Noticer”. It is a story of a man named Jones, who seems to know more about the people around town, than they know about themselves. He is able to help a couple discover how to communicate, teens understand what to look for in a mate, a man to know what kind of legacy he wants to leave for his unborn child. And a young man takes a look at himself and ask, “What is it about me that other people would change if they could?”
This book is full of wisdom, and one of my favorite quotes from this book is, “A person could lose everything, chasing nothing.” That says a lot, with little words. It made me ask myself what have I been chasing.
“The Noticer” is a fast read, but one that is worthy of your time. Once I started, I did not put it down until I was finished. Mr. Andrews writes in a way that is easy to follow and engaging. I would recommend “The Noticer” to young and old alike.
