    Story
    (122)

    From the author of the number-one national best seller Three Cups of Tea, the continuing story of this determined humanitarian and the schools he has established. In this dramatic first-person narrative, Greg Mortenson recounts his relentless, ongoing efforts to establish schools for girls in Afghanistan; his extensive work in Azad Kashmir and Pakistan after a massive earthquake; and the unique ways he has built relationships with Islamic clerics, militia commanders, and tribal leaders.

    Cathleen says: "Better than Three Cups of Tea"
    "Mortenson is deceitful."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    To get a 5-star, the ficticious stories must be removed (afterall, this was supposed to be non-fiction), replaced with the real story of finances, schools built and people involved.

  • Three Cups of Deceit: How Greg Mortenson, Humanitarian Hero, Lost His Way

    Story
    (77)

    Greg Mortenson has built a global reputation as a selfless humanitarian and children's crusader, and he's been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. He is also not what he appears to be. As acclaimed author Jon Krakauer discovered, Mortenson has not only fabricated substantial parts of his bestselling books, but has also misused millions of dollars donated by unsuspecting admirers like Krakauer himself. This is the tragic tale of good intentions gone very wrong.

    D. Martin says: "Had to be written, doesn't have to be read"
    "Krakauer exposes Mortenson for what he is..."
