    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.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin and/or Patrick Lawlor?

    Now knowing that Mortenson likely made up key portions of the book I'm sad that I wasted a credit on this 'nonfiction' title. I think Audible should give credit back to anyone who wasted it on this. Too bad, too, because it's a really good story...if only it were true.


    Has Three Cups of Tea turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I'll do more research before I take someone at their word that the work is nonfiction.


    What about Patrick Lawlor’s performance did you like?

    He was good. No complaints with the narration/performance.


    Do you think Three Cups of Tea needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. Greg Mortenson needs to come clean and tell the millions of people who read Three Cups of Tea what is and isn't true.
