Like The Traveler's Gift, The Noticer is a unique narrative is a blend of fiction, allegory, and inspiration. Gifted storyteller Andy Andrews helps us see how becoming a "noticer" just might change a person's life forever.

I think the leasons were laid out in a very entertaining way.I listened to it twice. Yes as a reader he lost voice character a time or two, but the story was good.
Mr. Andrews unfolds this wonderful lesson in an easy format. Learn from someone else's mistakes and you won't need to make them all yourself. I've listened to this 3 or 4 times - maybe I'm noticing things a little more. Wonderful!
The main character appears as a know it all kind of guy which annoyed me all the way. The book has some helpful flashes that could have been summarized into 30 minutes. Dont waste a credit on it, better pay for it.
A great book and to get us to see things in a larger context. It inspired me to become more empathetic and patient with others.
I was extremely disapointed with this book. The central character (the noticer) always had some helpful advice and came off as a know it all. The "inspirational" tidbits, which the author has happily included and taken credit for, originate from other authors and earlier books (ie "The Five Love Languages"). Although the information and advice given by "the noticer" is valuable, I was put off by the blatant plagiarism.
I had high hopes for this book based on the reviews of others. Ultimately, however, I found the book average at best. It did offer some insightful points of view, but they were too few and far between. Sometimes a writing style can be seemingly simplistic, and yet offer real elegance. Yet here simplistic style came across as amateurish. As for narration, the reader too frequently lost track of his characters' voices, leaving the reader confused as to which character was speaking. One of the main characters was Jones, an old man. His voice was particularly grating, as it came across as a caricature of a feeble, elderly man. In summary, it's not a terrible book, but neither is it particularly rewarding or insightful. Three stars.
