This is a sequel, and knowing that, I first sought out the initial book before reading this one. Both are fascinating. They sound deep and serious, and they are; but the books are written in a way that blends humor and history with deep thoughts and questions. I love how Andrews pulls key people from history and dusts them off to share their stories and help Ponder find his answers. Most of this book is one huge conversation, but because of the introduction of various historical figures and their quirks, it comes across as one big adventure with an important goal.
The best thing about "The Final Summit" is that Andrews teaches truth through the story. His points are valid and apply to us all.
This book would make a great gift - even better if given as a set with the first book, "The Traveler's Gift."
I received a free copy of this book from BookSneeze in exchange for an honest review.
