The Final Summit By Andy Andrews

Posted on: May 7, 2011

Andy Andrews created a very famous character David Ponder in his earlier book ‘The Traveller’s Gift’. Now we have the same David Ponder coming back, in yet another thriller, novel, self-help, motivational book (whichever way you want to call it) titled "The Final Summit".

In this wonderful story, David ponder time travels(?) and meets some of the very famous characters in the history, works with them to save a personal gain, or a common gain for all of us, depending on the way you want look at it. Andy Andrews’ style of story telling grips you from page 1 and slowly adds and removes interesting knots in a way that makes this an unputdownable, yet useful work.

I liked Andy’s earlier books "The Butterfly Effect" and its young audience version "The Boy Who Changed The World". Compared to those, this story is much more detailed and appeals to wider audience. Andy uses some well known characters and few new ones to establish some simple, yet powerful principles that can shape our lives.

This 200+ pages book can be read in a day or two, depending on your reading speed. But it will be much more effective if we take some time to think about the concepts and digest them, apply them. Would be great if Thomas Nelson also brings a condensed / illustrated young audience version of this story!

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.
