Book Description

1 Oct 2013
Sometimes, you find perspective and sometimes, perspective finds YOU. In the quiet coastal town of Fairhope, Alabama, a mysterious old man named Jones has set up shop to do the one thing he knows best noticing the little things that make a big difference in people s lives. This time, however, he s doing it in front of an audience... a parenting class, to be exact. But Jones isn t there to teach only about parenting. He is also there to provide timeless nuggets of perspective on business, relationships and more to the searching hearts of the Fairhope community. As a teacher, mentor, mediator and, most of all, as the Noticer, Jones guides the citizens through disputes, frustrations and the answers to the questions we are all waiting to have answered. In this latest release from bestselling author, Andy Andrews, he proves once again why he is one of the most influential voices of the last 20 years. Combining timeless wisdom, clear perspective and page-turning storytelling, The Wisdom Seeds shows us anew that Andy Andrews notices things that most of us miss, and once revealed, these things might just change our lives forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Andy Andrews on Steroids 1 Oct 2013
By Joey Hancock - Published on
First let me be very clear, I am a huge Andy Andrews fan. I live in the South and the Gulf Coast is a favorite vacation spot and often a haunt. Andy writes with an "I can't put his book down" touch. You laugh, learn and live better because of his books. All of that said, Andy swings his pen into stronger ink in The Noticer Returns. Strong, powerful life changing and affirming writing will capture the reader in the first few paragraphs. My wife and I stood and wept together over a two page passage where Andy helped us through a very hard place in our life with the recent death of both of our mothers. I am already buying copies and giving them away. This is a must read whether you are twelve or ninety two. Thank you Andy for pulling the gloves off Jones.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Noticer Returns 4 Oct 2013
By M.Fields - Published on
Andy is a modern day C.S. Lewis. You will not find a more talented story teller. I devoured this book and went right back and read it again. This book is sure to change how you look at life. This is NOT a book to be missed. If you enjoyed Jones and his wisdom in book one The Noticer you will welcome your friend right back in your life in book two. I highly recommend this 5 star book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Andy Andrews' BEST book yet! 2 Oct 2013
By Bonnie Latino - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The author of America's beloved Forrest Gump says, "The Noticer Returns is a magical story that will change how you look at life." Far be it from me to quibble with a New York Times best-selling author, but I believe this a mystical story that will change how readers live."

Via a well-written story, which readers have come to expect from Andrews, the author details a simple, but profound, concept of parenting. The Noticer Returns has just flown to the top of my gift-giving list - especially for expectant parents.

One of the things I liked best was the profound nugget that perhaps America's "greatest generation" really wasn't. Is that blasphemy? Probably. However, Andrews illustrates that the real greatest generation was the one that raised the men and women who are accepted as our finest. Does that make sense? You bet it does. Had the men and women who fought and won World War II been raised by parents (and grandparents) who had different values and had made less time to raise their children, would their children have been willing to go through all they endured for years?

I was stunned to see the book dedicated to someone from my hometown of Atmore, AL, Dr. Will Baker. My guess is this book began with a conversational question from Dr. Baker: "The question is, what is the question?" I think Andy Andrews solved the maddening riddle --as only he could have--and this book is the result. I had to smile when I encountered the character of Baker Larson. Nice additional tip of the hat to Dr. Baker.

I have always believed Andy Andrews to be smart. The Noticer Returns shows new literary maturity--and downright brilliance. I have no doubt that his publisher knows this manuscript was worth the wait. Congratulations to author and publisher.

This book is truly the best of Andrews' unique career that began decades ago with what seemed his chance encounter under a pier with a man named Jones, not Mr. Jones. Just Jones.

Andy Andrews' only problem--and that of his publisher--now becomes . . . how do you top your own gold standard?

Fair disclosure: I received an advance paperback copy from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Profound & Profoundly Simple 1 Oct 2013
By Mac Richard - Published on
It's difficult to describe an Andy Andrews book--as he says, it's like trying to "lasso a bumblebee." But it's incredibly easy to reap the benefits of having read Andy's books. They are simple stories, very well told. Yet, within these simple stories, Andy imparts profound, PRACTICAL wisdom that transcends careers, age, marital status, or any other demographics. Returning to his protagonist Jones, Andy immediately connects the reader through his genuine affection for Jones. It's that connection that allows the reader to accept some of Jones's counsel regardless of how close to home it often strikes.

As good as THE NOTICER RETURNS is, it is equally good to give as a gift. It's one of those rare books that friends will be grateful you turned them on to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Those delightful moments... 1 Oct 2013
By anythinggoes - Published on
I read "The Noticer" back in 2009 and loved it, so I was hoping this sequel would live up. It did. The old guy, Jones, that you hated to see go in the first book comes back in this one. It's been enough years that I don't remember everything about the first one. I just remember it moving me deeply and pleasantly. So I was glad to see this book come along.

Sometimes you watch a movie and there comes a "moment" that you are profoundly grateful you were there to witness. It sometimes happens in concerts too. An artist or a band will create one of those moments... and you immediately think of several people you wish were there with you because you know you'll never be able to recreate the experience for them with just the story of it. Well, this book gave me two of those moments (I won't spoil). Of course it was a good book, and I was riveted the whole time, but it's those two separate moments that made me profoundly grateful for having read it. It's very rare in a book (and I wish I could create the effect in writing myself). Whatever magic Andy Andrews uses, it is delightful to experience.

Besides the sheer draw-you-in entertainment of it, there was also great insight (like Andy's other books) that I immediately started putting into practice with my own children and my other relationships.

But just like "The Noticer," there is some bad news in this sequel. About the time it ends, you're wishing like heck it wouldn't.
