The Noticer ~ Review AND Giveaway

I finished reading The Noticer and feel I may become a better person because of it. The book is cleverly written and Andrews encourages everyone, no matter what situation you find yourself in, to notice the things you DO have and be grateful. Put everything into perspective and only good things will come your way. Of course the opposite is true. Spend all your time thinking of what you DON'T have and you will end up in a vicious cycle with an increasing list of DON'Ts.

The characters are real. Jones is reminiscent of a biblical character. Not being religious myself, I recognized the image and yet felt comfortable following his journey and was amazed at all he accomplished by just talking to people. He made them see that their lives could be worse and through a new perspective, always made their lives better.

I think this book is a GREAT read and therefore would like to give a copy away.
