The Traveler's Gift: Seven Decisions That Determine Personal Successby Andy Andrews
Synopses & Reviews
This modern morality tale by gifted writer and speaker Andy Andrews teaches seven fundamental strategies for creating a successful life.
Much like the bestselling books by Og Mandino, this unique narrative is a blend of entertaining fiction, allegory, and inspiration, with just a touch of self-help. Gifted storyteller Andy Andrews gives us a front-row seat for one man's journey of a lifetime.
David Ponder is at a crossroads. Having lost his job and the will to live, he has been supernaturally selected to travel through time, gathering wisdom for future generations. Visits to historical figures such as Abraham Lincoln, King Solomon, and Anne Frank yield the Seven Fundamentals for Success that will impact the entire world. A visit to the future reveals the result of David's journey, the fruits of his labor.
Ultimately, like David, readers will see how the perspective of our own circumstances is dramatically altered when we glimpse the "big picture" of life.
"Andrews effectively combines self-help with fiction to catch readers' interest, sustaining momentum while simultaneously passing on instructions for positive thinking....Some astute thinkers may be put off by the simplistic story line, but Andrews does an exemplary job at providing positive suggestions for overcoming life's obstacles." Publishers Weekly
"[A] breezy little fantasy reminiscent of It's a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol....At book's end, there is a strong element of faith, but Andrews uses a light touch. Readable and less sentimental than Richard Paul Evans's The Christmas Box, this will find a ready audience." Library Journal
"The Traveler's Gift provides a powerful and compelling road map through the highways of life." John Schuerholz, General Manager, Atlanta Braves
"Full of insight one can use throughout life. A wonderful story...people of all ages will enjoy reading." Randy Travis, Entertainer
"I could not put The Traveler's Gift down. The story itself is gripping, but the wisdom is for the ages." Thurl "Big T" Bailey, Musician, Former NBA Star
"In the tradition of Og Mandino, Andy Andrews has spun an engaging morality tale." John C. Maxwell, Best-selling Author
