Episode #014: Andy Andrews, New York Times Best-Selling Author, Discusses The Noticer Returns

Author Andy AndrewsIf there were ever a time I struggled to categorize an author, this is it. I guess you might say you can’t put Andy Andrews in a box.

I’m not alone though. The publishing industry can come no closer to figuring out what kind of author Andy is any more than I can. Is he a fiction writer? A nonfiction author? In my opinion, he’s a bit of both.

Take some of life’s key lessons or principles, wrap them up in a compelling and engaging story and you have The Traveler’s Gift, The Noticer and the book we discuss today, The Noticer Returns.

Listen Now

In fact, if you’ve ever said to yourself, “Boy, I could read a lot more nonfiction if it just weren’t so…nonfiction-y,” then today I may be introducing you to the greatest author or all time. Keep reading to learn how you can win a free copy of The Noticer Returns.

In today’s episode with Andy, he’ll teach us:

  • What it takes to live an extraordinary life versus an average life
  • Why standards are so important and which ones we need to set for our lives
  • What we as a society need to do in order to change our culture
  • How you can find a Noticer (i.e. Mentor) of your own
  • The meaning behind, “You can’t believe everything  you think”
  • And a lot more!
