The Final Summit -- Andy Andrews Print

The Final Summit

The Final Summit by Andy Andrews describes the "final" summit meeting of many of the world's great thinkers throughout all of time to address the issue of how to save mankind. The archangel Gabriel, supposedly at God's command, has organized this meeting.  But it is more than just a friendly gathering.  Gabriel announces that if the group of people cannot correctly find the answer on how to save mankind, they will be destroyed.  The group is given a time limit and some rules on how to conduct the meeting.  Under this structure, the majority of the book consists of 'conversations' between these notable people.  

I hesitate to call this a "story" because it seems more like a description or chronicle of an event.  The major plot (finding an answer to save humanity) is not much more than a vehicle to deliver an inspirational message on how people should live their lives.  In this regard I felt the book was weak.  It would have been nice to have a more integrated story where the inspirational truths were revealed in the characters of the people rather than simply stated by the book's characters.  But despite that weakness I found it engaging.  It was interesting to see which new historical character would be introduced and what new answer the team would come up with.

Overall I enjoyed the book and I recommend it to others just for some of the ideas it presents.  They are worth talking about.
