    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.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    First off, I had not heard of Mortenson, 3 cups of tea, etc...But, I recently fell in love with the books on tape concept. I prefer the non-fiction literature so bought this one based on a decent overall rating.

    WHAT IS KRAKAUER'S Problem?!!! The ENTIRE book, every chapter, every paragraph, nearly every sentence (except for a few gratuitous


    What could Jon Krakauer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not write it, or shorten it to a simple magazine article.

    No.


    Could you see Three Cups of Deceit being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No
