One way or another, we all have to find what best fosters the flowering of our humanity in this contemporary life, and dedicate ourselves to that. - Joseph Campbell(1904-1987)
|The Final Summit|
it is no surprise why the author Andy Andrews has been dubbed by the New York Times as “one of the most influential people in America.” he has written a riveting page-turner that features historical figures and anecdotes. his masterful storytelling is also laced with a touch of suspense and humor. the principles he outlines are surprisingly simple, highly inspiring and very doable. i was gripped from the very first page and when i reached the inevitable last one, all i could do was smile and sigh with pleasure at having read a wonderful entertaining book.
unquestionably, this book and the author himself deserve a place next to Norman Vincent Peale, Og Mandino and Dale Carnegie to name a few.
The Final Summit is the sequel to The Traveler's Gift but can stand alone. in fact, one does not have to read the first book to truly appreciate the second one as i did. although there are Christian elements found here, there is nothing preachy about them. i will certainly be on the lookout for Andy Andrews' previous work and future ones.
*The Final Summit is available at Thomas Nelson, Amazon (Kindle, hardcover, unabridged audible audio edition), Barnes & Noble (NOOKbook, hardcover, compact disc) and Christianbook.com (hardcover, audiobook).
