book review: The Noticer

there are times in life when all we can do is hang on. circumstances, relationships, stress, work… all these things and more sometimes seem to serve only to barrage our lives with yet one more thing, robbing us of a vital, precious commodity: perspective.

it’s at this moment in a person’s life when Jones, the main character in Andy Andrew’s The Noticer, walks into their life, bringing with him his gift for seeing what others fail to notice. Jones brings with him the perspective that seems to get lost in the barrage of every day life.

whether he is talking to a homeless young adult with no clue of what his next step will be, a couple on the verge of divorce, an elderly widow who believes all her best days are behind her, or a business owner teetering on the edge of losing it all, Jones’ words of wisdom and clarity-inducing questions bring the needed perspective.

we all need people in our lives who really see us...really see us. The Noticer is an excellent reminder to us all that while we all need these people in our lives, we also need to be Noticers for those around us.
