Three Cups of Tea – Greg Mortensen

June 17, 2008

Well, damn, work and the general busy-ness of life has really gotten in the way of my passion for reading lately. Between work deadlines and shopping for a new home, I have barely been able to crack a book the last couple of weeks. Now that is something to be sad about!

So, in between the appointments, meetings, and to-do list, I was able to sneak in a page or two here and there. I’ve been hearing a lot about Three Cups of Tea and when I happened upon it in a thrift store (a virtually brand new copy!) I picked it up and decided to give it a go. Having read The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splended Suns in the last year, I was looking forward to reading this book.

This book chronicles Greg Mortenson’s experiences in Pakistan while attempting to climb K2, and then in Pakistan and Afghanistan as he helped build over 50 schools in some of the most desolate areas on earth. As a human being, his accomplishments and dedication to his cause are really remarkable and amazing. This was a remarkably amazing and inspiring book that I would highly recommend to anyone and everyone.
