    Story

    In 1993 Greg Mortenson was the exhausted survivor of a failed attempt to ascend K2, an American climbing bum wandering emaciated and lost through Pakistan's Karakoram Himalaya. After he was taken in and nursed back to health by the people of an impoverished Pakistani village, Mortenson promised to return one day and build them a school. From that rash, earnest promise grew one of the most incredible humanitarian campaigns of our time: Greg Mortenson's one-man mission to counteract extremism by building schools, especially for girls, throughout the breeding ground of the Taliban.

    I found this book to be very interesting, and was very sad when it finally ended. The style of writing was perfect for this book, and the narrater did a great job.

    after the first two books its hard not to fall in love with the ending of this one, even though its sad, you know it has to happen.

  • The Areas of My Expertise

    In the great tradition of the American almanac, The Areas of My Expertise is a brilliant and hilarious compendium of handy reference tables, fascinating trivia, and sage wisdom on all topics large and small. Although best sellers such as Poor Richard's Almanack and The Book of Lists were certainly valuable, they also were largely true.

    Margot says: "Wow!"
    "I enjoyed it"
    Overall

    It was not something that I listened to for content, but something I listened to for enjoyment. I had a lot of time when I was doing something alone and wanted to listen to something, and this happened to be great at the time.
