I would suggest seeking out viewing the recent film “3000 Cups of Tea”, by noted film producer Jennifer Jordan, she has the top notch credentials as a film journalist! She has a much higher credentialed reputation in the field of journalism, for factual honesty, than does someone like Jon Krakauer, who dwells under an avalanche of counter criticisms from almost all his writings. Those criticisms noting outright cherry picking of facts, and misleading deceptions!
Anyone truly hoping to claim objectivity on these writings of either Mortenson’s co-biographer, or Krakauer, is dishonest if they resist pursuing viewing Jennifer Jordan’s film “3000 Cups of Tea”!
Please avoid the trap of “in the box thinking” and especially “Confirmation Bias”!
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.
