From Publishers Weekly
Bestselling inspirational writer and speaker Andrews (The Traveler's Gift) again blends fiction, allegory and inspiration and seasons it with a dash of autobiography. The result is a readable little tale of a mysterious old man named Jones—just Jones, no mister—who shows up in the lives of people in crisis. Jones brings the gift of perspective—he notices alternative ways to think about things. Some of what he says is common sense: yes, sir works better than I guess. Some of what he says counters received wisdom: do sweat the small stuff, because little things can make a big difference as surely as brushstrokes make up a masterpiece. The narrator Andy is personable and appealing, and Jones is mysterious and brusque enough not to be a cloying Pollyanna. The title is awkward and not everyone likes motivational books, but many readers do. Andrews brings a track record, wordsmith skills and, best of all, an imagination. (Apr. 28)

I purchased the book for my Kindle along with a pre-order of the sequel... "Noticer Returns". I started out highlighting some of the key insights that Jones was passing onto the various characters but quickly got caught up in the story and simply forgot until the last couple of chapters. I then went back and reviewed each chapter to pull out the nuggets that were used to inspire the characters in a way that they could move their lives beyond the ordinary into making positive impacts for others and themselves.
I look forward to reading about Jones return in the next book.
In the beginning of the story, Jones shows up when Andy is down and out. He’s living under the boardwalk and working odd jobs. Jones lores him out from there and tells him how he is looking at life the wrong way. Yet, you will enjoy his words more than mine. He tells him that he, Jones, is the Noticer. Jones says that perspective is what's missing in Andy's life. He needs that to get on the right path.
Before leaving the boy, Jones gives him three books to read. He tells him that they will help him because they are about famous people who had perspective in their lives. It would help Andy do some self-reflection. Jones returns again and again until Andy’s light bulb goes on and he begins the right path.
Throughout the story, Jones appears to others who have lost their way and what he tells them is just amazing. You might think you’ve got it all together yourself until you read this book. I’ll guarantee that before you get to the end, you will find that at least one, if not more, of the advice Jones gives would have helped you some time in your life—or still could. It was a fast read and I find myself reading it over again. I highly recommend this book.
