The Final Summit by Andy Andrews
David Ponder is back. This time the fate of mankind is in his hands.
This is mankind’s last chance. Centuries of greed, pride, and hate have sent humanity hurtling toward disaster, and far from its original purpose. There is only one solution that can reset the compass and right the ship, and it consists of only two words.
With time running out, it is up to David Ponder and a cast of history’s best and brightest minds to uncover this solution before it is too late. The catch? They are allowed only five tries to discover the answer.
Readers first encountered David Ponder in The Traveler's Gift. Now, in The Final Summit, Andrews combines a riveting narrative with astounding history in order to show us the one thing we must do when we don’t know what to do.
Wow, what a great story! I have become a huge Andy Andrews fan lately, and this book is a true masterpiece.
The story begins with David Ponder sitting alone in his penthouse apartment situated above his 55 story highrise. He might be surrounded by massive wealth, but his wife recently died and he is devastated. In fact, he is so lonely that he is contemplating suicide.
What happened next is an unbelievable tale filled with well known leaders that we recognize and admire from the greatest history books. Joan of Arc, Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, King David from the Bible, and so many more.
Their mission collectively is to discover two little words that will save humanity, and they have only five chances to get it right.
The journey of David Ponder and the fascinating characters from history can be life changing, if we only let it. It challenges the reader to search their own heart and see if they are doing their part to affect their own circle of friends and acquaintances, and also how to impact the world in general.
If you have never read any books written by Andy Andrews, please consider adding this book to your wishlist. You will not be disappointed.
