Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered why we spend so much time and energy thinking about the big challenges in our lives when all the evidence proves it's actually the little things that change everything? That's right...absolutely everything. 

New York Times best-selling author Andy Andrews is known for his strong storytelling and unequaled perspective on principles that empower the human mind and spirit. The Little Things embodies his own approach to life and work, detailing for the first time some of the exclusive material that he uses to teach and coach some of the most successful corporations, teams, and individuals around the world. In his unique humorous style, Andy shows how people succeed by actually going against the modern adage "don't sweat the small stuff". By contrast, Andy proves that it is in concentrating on the smaller things that we add value and margin. 

"In a world where so many feel powerless, wouldn't it be great to feel in control? Then know this. Perspective can be more important than basic answers. 

"I am more passionate than ever about my search to notice that one thing...that one tiny thing that, when understood and harnessed, allows us to create a life of extraordinary purpose and powerful results. It's less about drive and will power than it is about understanding certain principles and why they work...every time."

Andrews provides common-sense perspective and a game plan for meeting various challenges, such as: 

  • Managing life in a society that seems to be constantly offended by something or someone 
  • Creating change that is permanent and not short term 
  • Dramatically increasing results by harnessing the fraction of margin between second place and first 
  • Understanding our spiritual connection with God and how that affects planning and outcome 
  • Identifying the very moment when asking the question why? multiplies the success of an endeavor 
  • Recognizing the smallest details that ensure the greatest success

Disappointing

I loved the Noticer. This felt like a long winded lecture. Struggled to finish it.

Fragmented

The narrative is caotic and there aren’t connection between subject. For this I would give two stars. But I give 3 stars because there are some very good points between all the noise.

Love the Non-Conclusion

I've always enjoyed Andy's writing and storytelling ability. This book helped me to get a better perspective on perspectives and how little things can make a big difference in the big picture of life. I recommend this book to anyone who thinks their efforts (as small as they may seem) are not making a difference in the world. The truth is that little things sometimes make the biggest difference of all.

A homerun for Andy!!

This is easily Andy's masterpiece. If you've never read Andy's work, this is an excellent place to start. I have no doubt that my investment in this audiobook will pay off in all aspects of my life, not least financially. Read Andy. Doesn't matter which book - you can't miss when you're reading his work. Thanks Andy!

good listen but mehhh.

The author tellers a bunch of stories great stories; and he is a great story teller. it was just hard to pull anything from them as they seem fictional. or at least the dialogue was hard to believe. each story was about hindsight, and what we learned from the mistakes

Amazing-Powerful-Life Changing

Buy this book. I read 245 books last year (several by Andy Andrews) and this book is easily top 5. A good man with a good heart bringing a fantastically good message of hope.
Thanks Mr. Andrews.

His very best!

I have read or listened to all of Andy's books! His other books were so remarkable that it was hard to believe he could top them! This book challenges me, like none other! Mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally, financially, in myself for myself and in each of my relationships! I just ordered 10 copies of this book, in various formats, for others I believe in, including my children, managers, siblings, friends and my precious mother who is 82! Next month I will get 10 more! Thank you Andy!

Painful

This book is painful to listen to. I spent far too long listening to an introduction which berates other authors for writing boring introductions. I can't even begin to describe the irony. Go to the library and read the chapter titles. Save your money and time!
