Book Review

“The Noticer” Sometimes, all a person needs is a little perspective by Andy Andrews is a series of fictional stories of people during different seasons of life. When a mysterious man named ‘Jones’ (not ‘Mr. Jones just Jones’) unexpectedly appears to give new perspective to their unique situation. Some of those areas of life include new perspectives on circumstances for a homeless man, to love, worry, wisdom, dating and marriage, choices, getting older and death for a man who is dying. Each perspective given was able to change the persons life and circumstances from that point on.
2 of the things I particularly enjoyed was 1) the writer’s emphasis on how little things matter using the story of Napoleans defeat at the battle of Waterloo, where things could have been different for Napoleans army if they only had brought with them a handful of nails. 2) I liked how he made a difference between a choice and a mistake
The book closes with a Readers Guide of questions that we may ask ourselves that relates to the chapters in the book.It was a nice easy read which I would give a 4 out of 5 stars
