#amreading: The Noticer

“Remember, young man, experience is not the best teacher. Other people’s experience is the best teacher. By reading about the lives of great people, you can unlock the secrets to what made them great.” —The Noticer
The Noticer

Like many folks, I have a lot of books lurking on my Kindle. This fall, I’m making a concerted effort to give them a look. One book I started on the plane to Nashville was The Noticer by Andy Andrews. The story involves a mysterious man named Jones who pays attention to the sorts of things we might overlook. 

It’s a parable of sorts, fiction with a purpose. My only quibble is that story keeps interrupting itself to make a point. However, there are useful suggestions and brilliant insights. Solid truths. While I find the author’s style mildly frustrating, I’ll still finish the book (treating it as a non-fiction resource).

Useful take-away: Wow, am I inspired to read more biographies!
