David Ponder, the protagonist from Andy Andrews’ The Traveler’s Gift, is back for another inspirational story in The Final Summit. David has been given a challenge; to come up with a solution to the decline of civilization in just two words. David can consult with some of the finest minds in history to solve this issue. Yet the solution is not as obvious as it seems.
The Final Summit, like The Traveler’s Gift, is a parable of great wisdom. While The Traveler’s Gift highlights basic principles of leadership, The Final Summit highlights basic tenants of living. The story is engaging, and I agonized along with David and his group after each solution was announced and judged.
While The Final Summit was enjoyable and teaches valuable lessons in what is truly important in life, I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had not read The Traveler’s Gift first. The beauty and simplicity of both books is not as astounding the second time around. Despite this, I recommend it to anyone, whether or not you have read anything else by Andy Andrews.
