Perspective is a powerful thing. Andy Andrews has spent the past five years doing a double take at every white-haired old man he sees, hoping to have just one more conversation with the person to whom he owes his life. Through a chance encounter at a local bookstore, Andy is reunited with the man who changed everything for him - Jones, also known as “The Noticer.”
As the story unfolds, Jones uses his unique talent of noticing little things that make a big difference. And these “little things” grant the people of Fairhope, Alabama, a life-changing gift - perspective. Along the way, families will be united, financial opportunities will be created, and readers will be left with powerfully simple solutions to the everyday problems we all face.
Through the lens of a parenting class at the Grand Hotel in Point Clear, Alabama, Jones guides a seemingly random group to ask specific questions inspired by his curious advice that “You can’t believe everything you think.” Those questions lead to answers for which people have been searching for centuries: How do we begin to change the culture in which we live? What is the key to creating a life of success and value? What if what we think is the end…is only the beginning? What starts as a story of one person’s everyday reality unfolds into the extraordinary principles available to anyone looking to create the life for which he or she is intended.

Lover of life and lover of books! I read/listen to a wide range (many) but my favorite non fiction are self-help and autobiographies.
I have been a fan of Andy Andrews and his writing for many years and read everything he writes. When I saw the announcement for this book, I immediately pre-ordered it.
Although I was in the middle of another book, I paused listening to it and downloaded this book. At first I was disappointed. The first two chapters appeared to take the book in no direction. But I knew in my heart that the first two chapters laid the foundation for the book. By the time I was half way into the book I knew it is a winner. It is filled with many life lessons, quotable statements, and more important valuable outlines and stories to learn from and teach.
This book is a hidden gem - it is one of those books which requires many listens and also reading in the physical form.
No doubt I will put this on my highly recommended list and will read it again and again.
Searching for Excellence and reaching for the Top with good listening and uplifting audible books!
Excellent followup to Andy Andrews book The Noticer. Andy does an excellent job reading this book and captivating the audience and actually draws you in to being not only a listener and becoming a participant. Excellent message and story.
Jones who as always was at the right spot at the right time; with just the right words of wisdom for the character he encounters.
I enjoyed the scene when Jones suddenly appears in the wheat field.
This book is a great sequel. I was very anxious to listen to it, and enjoyed it very much. Everyone can benefit from the perspective presented in this book. I will definitely be listening to it again!
Andy is by far my favorite author/storyteller. The return of Jones (not Mr. Jones, just Jones) is fantastic. This book is filled with wisdom, drama, humor and plenty of other information. Andy does an incredible job of reading his stories with different voices for the characters. At times I would laugh out loud because he is so good at that part. I will recommend this and every other Andy Andrews book to anyone.
Truths so important for EVERY person to grasp conveyed in such a way as to give encouragement and hope. I'm convinced that not only is it possible to live an extraordinary life, but it's time to decide my desired outcome and make the changes needed to begin the process. Thank you Mr. Andrews & "Jones".
A Fantastic story that really does help one gain perspective on his or her own personal life.
