It is written in a fable format, much like his others (i.e. The Noticer), but it is chocked full with so many interesting facts about people. I did not read The Traveler's Gift prior to picking up this book, but you do not have to. I, however, was really curious about it, so I slapped in my iPod and listened to the book which gave me a litte more perspective.
David Ponder is whisked away by Gabriel to a gathering of all the travelers to solve one very simple question,
“What does humanity need to do, individually and collectively, to restore itself to the pathway toward successful civilization?”
or so they thought.
David enlists the help of travelers including Winston Churchill, King David, Joan of Ark, Erik Erickson and a host of others to help him answer this question. I will not give away the plot, because it is fantastic. Many names you will recognize from the history books, and others like Erik Erickson, you may not. Suffice it to say, what each of these people did during their own times was fantastic.
I encourage you to pick up a copy of this book, but I would also encourage you to read The Traveler's Gift first and then this book. Allow yourself to be transported to another time and place. You will love it.
