The Final Summit by Andy Andrews is a self-help parable that seeks to answer the question: "What does humanity need to do, individually and collectively, to restore itself to the pathway toward successful civilization?" It attempts to do so through a fictional character who finds himself at a heavenly “summit” of time “travelers” who have been brought there by the Archangel Gabriel. Most of the “travelers” are famous people who are known for great accomplishments, except for the hero of our story, a normal man who found wealth and prosperity by learning life secrets through his previous time travels.
This leads us to the first problem with this book: It's actually a sequel, apparently, to a previous book. So it took me a little while to figure out what this whole “traveler” business was about. I left the book still not quite sure what the travelers were actually doing in traveling, or how it all worked, but I got the basic gist of it.
