First of all, yes—I KNOW that is a pushy title. There was zero creativity involved in creating it.
I know I should have warmed you up to the idea of buying something before coming right out and asking you to do so.
The experts would say that everything about this is wrong.
But I am not that concerned.
Because I feel like you know me.
If you’ve read the blog for a while, then I’d like to think that you know a little bit about me.
The bottom line is that I rarely come right out and ask you to spend your money on anything. When I do, you can be sure that it is something that is tried and tested, something that will immediately add massive value to your life.
And that’s exactly what I think Andy Andrews’ new book, The Noticer Returns, is.
Before we continue, here’s full disclosure on two things:
- Yes, I am Andy’s manager.
- Yes, I will financially benefit from your purchase of this book.
Now I want to back up this post’s bold title. Here is exactly why you should buy this book today:
1. If you have influence in the lives of any children, it will change the way your relationship with them works.
The Noticer Returns is the closest thing to a “parenting book” Andy has ever written. Yet even I, a man who has never had any kids, was totally enthralled by it.
Why? Because even though I’m not a parent, I am an uncle. I am a mentor. I am a son. There are children in my life whom I influence. And I’d never heard parenting advice quite like this.
What makes The Noticer Returns so unconventional is that it challenges the idea that the goal of parenting should be to raise great kids. Instead, the goal should be to raise great adults.
Think about it…we all can think of at least one person who was an incredible kid, came from an incredible family, and then went incredibly berserk as soon as he left the house at age 18.
The story in this book shows you specifically how to parent in a way that equips children to make that crucial transition from childhood to adulthood without encountering all the usual roadblocks.
How? By showing you how to parent according to principle. Andy has spent years studying what exactly enables great families to be so great. Not surprisingly, just about all great families seem to have things in common when it comes to parenting.
The Noticer Returns lays out the principles these great families have utilized for you to harness for your own.
2. It will entertain you.
This is the factor that truly makes Andy’s writing great. He doesn’t just give you life-changing information; he delivers it in the form of a page-turning story.
This isn’t a dry, bland parenting manual. Andy has taken the principles of great parenting and woven them through the incredible story of an old man named Jones.
Jones calls himself a “noticer.” He notices the little, often overlooked things in life that can make a huge difference. Interestingly, the character of Jones is based off a real person named Jones whom Andy met when he was a homeless 23-year-old.

3. It will change your culture.
Andy speaks to dozens of companies and organizations every year across many different industries. What’s amazing is that even companies that are polar opposites are after the same thing—creating a winning culture.
An amazing thing that Andy discovered is that, whether they’ve intentionally created one or not, companies already have a culture.
The same goes for you. Whether you know it or not, you have a culture. There is a culture in your family, in your business, in your community, and in your church. And you have a hand in creating all of them.
If you truly want to create winning cultures—cultures that are defined by nothing short of the very best results—this book will show you how.
And that’s the end of my sales pitch. :-) Here is the link to buy the book on Amazon.
If you’re unsure of whether this book is for you or not, head over to the official book page and take a risk-free listen or read of the first chapter. If any children came to your mind while you read this post, I strongly encourage you to sneak a peak at the very least.
Like I said earlier—I try very hard to rarely ask you to do something as major as giving up your hard-earned cash to buy a book. I know you don’t have much time, I know you can never have enough cash, and I know there are a thousand other books people are trying to get you to read.
The Noticer Returns is worth your while. You won’t regret a single second you spend soaking up the wisdom of an old man named Jones.
