About the author

Biography of Andrews, Andy

Andy Andrews is an internationally known speaker and novelist whose combined works have sold millions of copies worldwide. He has been received at the White House and has spoken at the request of four different United States presidents. Andrews' bestselling book, The Traveler's Gift: Seven Decisions that Determine Personal Success, is an international bestseller that remained on the New York Times bestseller list for four and a half months; it has been translated into nearly 20 languages.

Andrews lived a relatively normal life until the age of nineteen, when both his parents died, his mother from cancer, his father in an automobile accident. Andrews says he made some bad choices at this point in his life found himself homeless, sleeping occasionally under a pier on the gulf coast or in someone's garage. He be gain to ask himself, "Is life just a lottery ticket, or are there choices one can make to direct his future?" Over time, he read more than two hundred biographies of great men and women.

How did they become the people they were, he wondered. Were they simply born this way? Or were there decisions made at critical junctures in their lives that led to such success? Andrews finally determined that there were seven characteristics that each person had in common. This became the basis for his story in The Traveler's Gift. Andrews also wrote The Butterfly Effect, The Heart Mender and The Noticer.

Review by Library Journal (2002-09-15)

Comedian and motivational speaker Andrews has crafted a breezy little fantasy reminiscent of It's a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol. Our hero, the likable David Ponder, finds himself at a midlife crossroads: events beyond his control have deprived him of money and his job. With a wife and daughter to support, he becomes seriously distraught and contemplates suicide. A car crash precipitates the imaginary (or is it real?) journey that forms the bulk of the book-individual visits with seven historical notables.

Each offers our titular "traveler" gifts in the form of written "Decisions for Success", which he then absorbs. For example, Anne Frank's "gift" vividly demonstrates that happiness is a choice. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Book Awesome book, self-help written in a story style, so it's an easy read, interesting, not dry, as many self-help books tend to be. Emotional and motivating, yet gentle. Highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to take charge...and credit...for their decisions to be happy and successful in life. 12/11/2012
