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.
I'm the type of person who looks for every opportunity to better himself, and as of recently, I've been hooked on self-help books of all types. Many take personalized, one-on-one approaches to telling their story or making their point. Others put forth considerably more science and fact in explaining our emotions, personalities, etc. only in Andrews' book did I find a compelling story that kept me interested and reading, but it was so chock full of tidbits of wisdom that it absolutely requires a second read.
That being said, this book has solidified my decision to read every bit of Andy Andrews' writing.
