A new story of common wisdom from the best-selling author of The Traveler’s Gift. Orange Beach, Alabama, is a simple town filled with simple people. But like all humans on the planet, the good folks of Orange Beach have their share of problems—marriages teetering on the brink of divorce, young adults giving up on life, business people on the verge of bankruptcy, as well as the many other obstacles that life seems to dish out to the masses. Fortunately, when things look the darkest, a mysterious man named Jones has a miraculous way of showing up. An elderly man with white hair, of indiscriminate age and race, wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt and leather flip flops carrying a battered old suitcase, Jones is a unique soul. Communicating what he calls “a little perspective,” he explains that he has been given a gift of noticing things that others miss. “Your time on this earth is a gift to be used wisely,” he says. “Don’t squander your words or your thoughts. Consider even the simplest action you take, for your lives matter beyond measure...and they matter forever.” Jones speaks to that part in everyone that is yearning to understand why things happen and what we can do about it. Like The Traveler’s Gift, The Noticer is a unique narrative blend of fiction, allegory, and inspiration in which gifted storyteller Andy Andrews helps us see how becoming a “noticer” just might change a person’s life forever.

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 they were intended.

Als Wüstenblume ist sie weltberühmt und eine Bestseller-Autorin geworden. „Brief an meine Mutter“ ist der berührende Erfahrungsbericht eines dramatischen Generationen-Konflikts und gleichzeitig Waris Diries persönlichstes Buch – mit einem exklusiven Zusatzkapitel über die Aussöhnung mit der Mutter! Als Waris Dirie erfährt, dass ihre Mutter schwer erkrankt ist, zögert sie nicht, sie aus ihrem Heimatland Somalia für eine Operation in ihre Wahlheimat Wien zu holen. Die medizinische Versorgung in Somalia ist noch immer unzureichend, und in Europa kann geholfen werden. Gleichzeitig hofft Waris, dass sie endlich das Thema Beschneidung, das wie eine Wand zwischen Mutter und Tochter steht, ansprechen kann. Waris kann nicht verstehen, warum ihre Mutter sie als Kind beschneiden ließ. Doch die Mutter ist überzeugt, das Richtige getan zu haben, indem sie die Tradition der Beschneidung an ihrer Tochter durchführen ließ. Eine Aussöhnung findet nicht statt. Da beschließt Waris, ihrer Mutter nach deren Abreise einen langen Brief zu schreiben – um den Graben zwischen ihnen endlich zu überbrücken. Doch erst Jahre später, als sie selbst ein Kind bekommt, erhält sie von ihrer Mutter die Anerkennung, nach der sie sich so lange gesehnt hat.

It all comes down to the truth. Much like the character in one of his best-selling books, Andy Andrews is first and foremost a Noticer. Sometimes, all one needs is a little perspective and Andy has been providing that perspective to some of the world’s most influential companies and organizations for the last 20 years. His ability to transform an individual by their own understanding and desire has made him loved by millions. Now, Andy Andrews brings his lessons and perspective into the important arena of government, citizenship, and what it means to completely uphold the truth. If the truth is what sets us free, what does it mean to live in a society where truth is absent? How do truth and lies in the past shape our destiny today? Through the lens of the Holocaust, best-selling author Andy Andrews examines the critical need for truth in our relationships, our communities, and our government. In this compact, nonpartisan book, Andrews urges readers to be “careful students” of the past, seeking accurate, factual accounts of events and decisions that illuminate choices we face now. By considering how the Nazi German regime was able to carry out over eleven million institutional killings between 1933 and 1945, Andrews advocates for an informed population that demands honesty and integrity from its leaders and from each other. The future of our country rests on the ability to separate the truth from lies, and Andrews compels each of us to examine our leaders’ claims with a critical eye. His question— how do you kill eleven million people?—is provocative, but his warning is clear: “Only a clear understanding of the answer to this question and the awareness of an involved populace can prevent history from continuing to repeat itself as it already has, time and again.”

Just one of these decisions can alter the course of a person’s life. What if you decided to master all seven? In this revised and repackaged version of Mastering the Seven Decisions, master storyteller and life coach Andy Andrews has fast-forwarded the concept of success and what it takes to make it stick. Seeking out what separates the ordinary life from the extraordinary, Andrews has spent much of his life dissecting countless biographies and spending time with some of the most successful people on the planet in an effort to understand the principles that propel them toward greatness. The result: seven simple principles that – when applied consistently- render extraordinary lives. Through his entertaining, down-to-earth style, Andrews introduces these principles and offers all the tools necessary to make lasting changes in your life. The consistent application of the Seven Decisions brings about what can only be called miracles: What was once labeled “impossible” actualizes. Opportunities that once eluded you are now attracted to you. Dysfunctional relationships transform into harmonious ones. Life, which was once a struggle, now becomes an exciting adventure!
