As it chronicles Mortenson’s quest, which has brought him into conflict with both enraged Islamists and uncomprehending Americans, Three Cups of Tea combines adventure with a celebration of the humanitarian spirit. The astonishing, uplifting story of a real-life Indiana Jones and his humanitarian campaign to use education to combat terrorism in the Taliban’s backyard.

After discussing how James Frey set out to fool people, she writes, "So did Greg Mortenson, the t builder of Afghan schools in 'Three Cups of Te. He didn't hallucinate that he'd been kidnapped by Taliban when, in fact, he'd been hosted in some kind people's homes. He cooked up events to mold his public image into that of the noble, forgiving survivor of brutal treatment.

Thrilling proof that one ordinary person, with the right combination of character and determination, really can change the world

Entertainer one. But for many facts apparently is not accurate story and apparently lied a lot. In this way just distracts the public with nicely written story while getting more money from it publication. All the work may or may not be true. At least they should say is fiction.

I first tried the "adult" version but found it difficult to wade though. This version is a little better. It is really a memroire but is written in the third person. It seemed to me that it was a man patting himself on the back for all the schools he was building. While I applaud what he did, I did not enjoy this book. The best part of the whole thing was the interview with his ten-year-old daughter at the end. I only finished it because it was our bookclub book for the month.

This guy has injected a ton of fiction into his story....Professor of English and top memoirist Mary Karr writes about him in "The Art of Memoir" in her chapter about scam artists. After discussing how James Frey set out to fool people, she writes, "So did Greg Mortenson, the skunk-posing-as-saint builder of Afghan schools in 'Three Cups of Tea.' He didn't hallucinate that he'd been kidnapped by Taliban when, in fact, he'd been hosted in some kind people's homes. He cooked up events to mold his public image into that of the noble, forgiving survivor of brutal treatment. Jon Krakauer's 'Three Cups of Deceit' details how Mortenson went on to drain massive sums from his charity for personal use, renting private jets for book-selling junkets and buying his own books at retail to stay on best-seller lists. He was forced by the Montana attorney general to repay $1,000,000 to settle these allegations."

This is an incredibly important, uplifting story of an "average" American who made great sacrifices and risked his life to help others in a land far, far away. Greg Mortensen is a true hero and has done more to help eradicate the root causes of terrorism (the lack of education and/or the brainwashing of impressionable children in the guise of education) than just about everyone else. He is a great example of how much difference one person can make in the lives of thousands of others. This should be required reading for students, politicians, and others around the world.

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.

My earlier review is below but the questions raised about what actually happened have made me reduce the rating and note that it is questioned by many. Without any real proof that this gentleman is what he says he is I cannot endorse the book. It is a great story but the fiction belongs in another category and this one needs to get off the fence between fact and fantasy. I left my earlier review because it is a good read.

This is an extraordinary book about an extraordinary man doing extraordinary things. Seldom can a person's work or experiences keep my interest or create in me the admiration that Greg Mortenson's life has in this book. Written in a third person narrative in an easy to read journalistic style, the book tells of the efforts of this man to fight terrorism in the way that makes the most sense, by offering to the people of Pakistan and Afghanistan education and other necessities for them to develop their own better lives where they live. He does not arrogantly build what he wants nor does he simply bull his way into tribes to force upon them his school with his vision. Instead, he works with the local tribal elders with the patience and respect not exhibited by our country's leaders and thereby collaborates with them to help them with their vision of a school, bridge or water system in their villages. It is an inspirational story that provides the clear message that shock and awe is a pathway to disaster for the entire global village.

Everyone should read this book and in reading it gain some understanding of the ways people must relate to each other - not as superiors to inferiors nor developed countries to developing countries but as equal humans with human needs and skills to be valued and included in efforts to marshall resources to the benefit of those who need them. In such a world, there is no hatred of the one who brings resources because there is respect shown for those who need them and the relationship is one of equals.

As we begin a new administration and live in the world made ever so much more dangerous by the policies of the past administration, we can only hope that the wisdom of Haji Ali shared with Greg Mortenson and recounted in this book becomes the cornerstone of diplomacy for all people and a real and lasting peace can grow from the mutual respect of people made enemies by military force.

Read it. Learn from it and find the way that you can participate in the world in your own way. Greg Mortenson did and this book tells us how important that is for us all.

Mesmerizing tale about a region inhospitable on so many levels. Inspired by the passion and commitment of Gregg and the tribal leaders.
