The Final Summit

Imagine that you were posed this question:
"What does humanity need to do, individually and collectively, to restore itself to the pathway toward successful civilization?"
Now, imagine that you are given this question by Gabriel, the archangel himself and told by him that you have only five chances to get the answer right with some of the greatest minds available to assist you such as Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington Carver, Joan of Arc, Eric Erickson, Benjamin Franklin and King David from the Bible.

The book includes a reader's guide making it a perfect choice for a book club selection.  Also available as a free resource to teachers and book clubs is a companion curriculum which you can find by visiting:
