Book: Three Cups of Tea

My loot from the party was a copy of Three Cups of Tea. I haven't started it yet - but it looks very good. A true story of one person making a big impact toward peace in the middle east.

Have you read it?

Such a good book! I still think about all it said today and I read it over a year ago.

Yes, it is excellent! A lot of geography info that gets a little technical but overall a great story. Let us know your thoughts!

Jill said...

Yes! It's so inspiring! I still think about it a lot, too after reading it several years ago.

Loved it. I little too detailed in the beginning but after that very interesting and thought provoking. I had my 13 yr old read the kid's version as well.

Great book - he spoke at UNC last year.

One of the best books I've ever read. Its one of those books that stays in your mind years after you've read it. I've also given away several copies as gifts. I've spent most of the past two years living in India (which is vastly different from Pakistan) but the book was still an eye opener for me about life in that part of the world.

Both of his books are very inspiring. I would love to read more about him, he mentions in the books that he has many fans and many detractors; it would be interesting to learn more.

Although the Greg Mortenson's story is very inspirational, the prose of David Oliver Relin is a bit melodramatic.

Three Cups of Tea is one of my favorite books - I actually have only listened to it on tape in my car [on my commute to school, I often clapped and cheered Greg on, I'm sure it made the others stuck in morning traffic wonder a bit] It is a very inspirational book and it reminded me of the true value of education.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

PS. My boyfriend says you rock for posting Frightened Rabbits awhile back! It was ironically a day after we had a talk on if they were allowed on our itunes...
