“This book is a wake up call. A nudge to those who walk in an unconscious state. Inside this book one can find very specific details of what has gone wrong for us and how to improve what we do. We ignore the message at our own peril.”

Darrel Forrest’s new book What’s It Going to Take? (published by Balboa Press) takes an insightful look at contemporary civilization. “The book is a snapshot of the current state of humanity set within a novel,” explains Forrest.

In What’s It Going to Take? the world is drowning in constant conflict as individuals, societies and governments each fight to keep a hold on what they believe is theirs. World leaders seem intent on maintaining their borders as humanity faces the prospect of extinction. The world’s financial future is perilous at best and society stands at the precipice looking into the abyss of its own demise. The world population has peaked and appears to be decreasing at an alarming rate.

Just after the turn of the 21st century, an ancient parchment comes to light that throws doubt over the origins of the Christian church. One man has been tasked to awaken the world from its ego-induced slumber. Brayden, a young man separated from contemporary society, may hold the answers. In the countless hours he has to himself, he has dedicated his life to learning the real reasons humanity had created such a hopeless future as a race. With the help of his spirit guide, he hopes to find the way to free humanity from its self-imposed fate.

“We are far too intelligent and complicated to be here without a purpose and we have forgotten what it is,” says Forrest. “This book is a wake up call. A nudge to those who walk in an unconscious state. Inside this book one can find very specific details of what has gone wrong for us and how to improve what we do. We ignore the message at our own peril.”
