      I had no idea what Three Cups of Tea was about when I received it as a present from my sister.  I recommend it to everyone.  What the guy accomplishes is absolutely incredible!  You’ll have to read the book to know what I mean.

        • YES!!  I just got done reading that one a little bit ago. Do you know he’s been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize? I signed up for his newsletter—you can go to the Central Asia Institute web site and do that (don’t have the URL, but it’s not intuitive so you need to google it.)

          As I also understand it, it is MUST READING for all military officers now.  Should be for everyone in the Obama administration as well.  What Greg Mortenson did is what the US needs to really get behind: education as the way to stop terrorism. happy

        • It’s no surprise that Greg Mortensen was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize...what he did is above and beyond.

        • This is a truely inspirational story of the persistence of one man to help these isolated children.

          He deserves the Nobel for all his dedicatiion and extreme focus.  If it weren’t for the one donor, this story would not have such a happy ending.

          There should be more people in the world like this author to sacrafice everything for his vision.

        • I’m in the middle of reading this book.  Just got it at the library this week.  I picked it up thinking it would be a bit dull and honestly, I could hardly put it down yesterday.
