Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Journey to Change the World. One Child at a Time (Young Reader's Edition) Paperback – January 22, 2009
|New from||Used from|
From Viking Press
In regards to the 60 Minutes episode that aired April 17, 2011: "Greg Mortenson’s work as a humanitarian in Afghanistan and Pakistan has provided tens of thousands of children with an education. 60 Minutes is a serious news organization and in the wake of their report, Viking plans to carefully review the materials with the author."
An inspiring chronicle . . . this is one protagonist who clearly deserves to be called a hero. ("People")
Mortenson's mission is admirable, his conviction unassailable, his territory exotic. ("The Washington Post")
Greg Mortenson's dangerous and difficult quest . . . is not only a thrilling read, it's proof that one ordinary person, with the right combination of character and determination, really can change the world. (Tom Brokaw)

Having said all of that, I did not like the way that Greg's story was told. The author, David Oliver Relin, is a journalist and I expected him to be more objective. It is clear that Greg Mortensen is a hero, but the author feels the need to bludgeon the reader over the head with that statement when is not at all necessary. Anyone reading the facts will come to that conclusion.
I appreciated the photos which were provided. They put a face to several of the key Pakistani and American people portayed in the book, so they were more real. The map was also helpful except that several of the towns which were discussed in the last quarter of the book weren't pictured (so it was harder to place them in geographical context).
I recommend this book to everyone, and I plan to donate to the charity which Greg established.
