"The Final Summit" by Andy Andrews book review

“The Final Summit” by Andy Andrews was the first book I have ever read by this author.  “The Final Summit” is the sequel to “The Traveler’s Gift”, and even though I did not read the first book, I was able to keep up in this book, and it could be read as a stand alone book.  I am not a big fan of time travel, or sci-fi, but with that said, I did enjoy the book.  He brought to life historical characters, such as, Winston Churchill, Anne Frank, Abraham Lincoln, Eric Erickson (whom I had never heard of) just to name a few.  It has a fictional character, David Ponder, who is grieving the loss of his wife. 

Gabriel comes to David Ponder, and takes him to the final summit, where they have a set amount of time, to give the correct two word answer to the question, “What does humanity need to do, individually, and collectively, to restore itself to the pathway toward successful civilization?”  It kept me wondering what the correct two word answer would be, throughout the book.  

At the end of the book, it gives a web address where you can unlock an exclusive video of Andy sharing behind the scenes stories.  That was interesting, as well.  Another noteworthy feature, that I found appealing as a home educating mom, was that they offered downloadable companion curriculum to go along with the book.
