What if the fate of humanity rests in your hands? What if you are given only five chances to find the solution to society's decline? What if your choice was wrong? This is the scenario author and speaker Andy Andrews presents in his new book The Final Summit.
Seventy-four year old David Ponder has had a remarkable life. Through public trials, he - with his wife, Ellen, by his side - has endured to become somewhat of a living legend. David has likely seen and done it all, including time travel. From wisdom gained from conversations with Abraham Lincoln, Anne Frank, Harry S. Truman, King Solomon and even the angel Gabriel, David worked hard to create a better world for himself and for others. Using seven decisions pertaining to happiness, responsibility, action, determination, wisdom, forgiveness and persistence, David has used what he learned to have a successful second chance, freely sharing his wisdom and sound advice with others.
Now, however, David sits alone in his penthouse suite, mourning and lost without his beloved Ellen, who had died suddenly a few months ago. Certain his life is over, David sits in silence, solitude and contemplation, unaware of the great responsibility, opportunity and difficult about to be given to him.
David, along with a forum of history's "greats" must determine within a limited amount of time, two words that spell the solution to society's problems and great decline. They are humanity's last hope. Should they fail, humanity's terrible fate will be sealed.
The Final Summit is one of those books that once picked up is difficult to put back down. Readers will feel the frustration, the urgency, the elation and the disappointment of this remarkable cast of characters. They will find themselves caught up in the discussions, wishing to shout out their own ideas and suggestions. Brief history lessons, surprises and the overall reality of the characters make The Final Summit a thoroughly enjoyable read. An added bonus is a Reader's Guide which will inevitably lead reader to question, "What can I do to make my own corner of the world, if not society as a whole, a better place?"
