The Final Summit by Andy Andrews

Book Description:  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.
Many years have passed since David Ponder discovered the Seven Decisions during a divine journey through time. Now 74 years old, Ponder has lost the one thing that mattered to him most: his wife, Ellen. Despite his personal and professional success, he now sits alone at the top of his 55-story high-rise contemplating the unthinkable, just as he did 28 years ago.
            However, just as things are looking their darkest, Ponder is informed through divine channels that he is needed now more than ever. Together, with the help of hundreds of his fellow Travelers, from Winston Churchill to George Washington Carver to Joan of Arc, he must work to discover the one solution that will save humanity. Time is running out, and the final summit of Travelers must work quickly to avoid dire consequences.

My Review:  After reading The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews I knew that reading and reviewing The Final Summit would be a must for me!  I was not disappointed!  My only regret is that I didn't read The Traveler's Gift first.  
David Ponder, the main character is working with some of the best people in history. Known as "the Travelers," Abraham Lincoln, Joan of Arc, Winston Churchill and Anne Frank to name a few.  They are people in history who had much wisdom and they have all come together, against the sands of time, to find one principle that will save mankind.
This is one of those reads!  A read that simply begs to be devoured and then savored.  So many nuggets of truth!  One must simply take time to ingest this wonderful read!
There are twists and turns with sage advice on almost every page in every chapter.  
The ease of reading this smooth flowing story makes the reader feel the depth of The Travelers and David Ponder's emotion as time is running out  to save the human race from extinction.
A wonderful and most unusual read!  I truly enjoyed this new and exciting book by Andy Andrews!
