In this interview, I talk with New York Times best-selling author and world-renowned speaker Andy Andrews about his new novel, The Noticer Returns.
We also talk about what it takes to tell a great story and why we all need a little more perspective.

About Andy and his new novel
Andy Andrews has been called “one of the most influential people in America.”
He is the author of several bestsellers, including How Do You Kill 11 Million People?, The Noticer, and The Traveler’s Gift, and a popular public speaker.
Andy has spoken at the request of four different U.S. presidents and was called “the best speaker I have ever seen” by Zig Ziglar.
He lives in Orange Beach, Alabama, with his wife, Polly, and their two sons.
His latest book, The Noticer Returns, is about how little things can make a big difference — if we choose to notice them.
