The Noticer by Andy Andrews

Don’t listen to what I have to say, read what Jones has to say….

“A grateful perspective brings happiness and abundance into a person’s life.” (p.13)

“Most people spend so much time fearing the things that are never going to happen or can’t be controlled that they have no energy to deal with the few things they can actually handle.” (p. 55)

“Because life is like a game of Monopoly. You may own hotels on Boardwalk or you may be renting on Baltic Avenue. But in the end, it all goes back in the box. The next generation will be getting out all your stuff and playing with it or fighting over it.” (p.102)

Those are just a few pearls of wisdom intertwined into the story of The Noticer. This is a charming story about a man named Jones, not Mr. Jones, just Jones, and his gift of noticing things that are often in plain sight. He speaks the truth, yet somehow in a way that the truth does not hurt but helps.

Read the story and your life might be changed, too.
