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 would only recommend this book to ages 8-20 year old.If you listened to Focus on the Family's - Wits End, then you would get the style immediately, but my children are all grown. You would only need to read the title of know the entire message of the book. It didn't have enough depth for me. I wanted to stop in the first chapter, however, I friend suggested it, and I thought it would have a surprise ending. But not really. The message was the same throughout the book and there wasn't any need to keep repeating it by changing the characters. His style lends itself to preteens up to college bound students.I thought the title needed to be reworked, at least to hold the read/listeners attention.
No, I did not care for his style of writing. He was predictable and a little tiresome for me.
Hie voice seemed forced as the Noticer, yet pleasant when not the Noticer, and grating and soft at times. I was not a fan of his voice throughout the entire book, maybe if other people shared the characters with him it could have made it more interesting.
No-because the message was in the title. Could have been delivered in a pamphlet.
Title was too simple and needed more development, but then again, so did the story.
The book was very thought provoking and inspiring.
This is not a book that I wanted to listen to in one sitting because I want to continue listening and gaining more insight from the book.
I would recommend this book to everyone.
Andy Andrews is one of my favorite authors and this is one of his best books. Why? For me, it brought all the other books together and helped me understand the why behind his other books.
This is a classic and is on my top ten books to read - Right up there with QBQ, Dave Ramsey's books, Dan Miller's books, and everything by Zig Ziglar.
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.
