Becoming a Reader: Three Cups of Tea

Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace . . . One School at a Time
WOW!  What a book!  What an inspiration!  It’s a must-read and just got better and better as it went on!  Basic idea: Greg Mortensen climbs but fails to summit K2.  Afterward, he is taken care of by a small, poor village.  When he sees their challenges, he promises to return and build them a school.  Building schools for the poorest of the poor in the Middle East becomes his life’s work.  Favorite quote from the book, "If you really want to change a culture, to empower women, improve basic hygiene and health care, and fight high rates of infant mortality, the answer is to educate girls."  Mortensen gives such incredible insight into a place I know so little about.  I heard him speak a year ago and have wanted to read this book ever since, and it did not disappoint!  Has anyone else read it?  Did you love it as much as I did?  Also, I’m such a fan of  Get on it, and we can be book review buddies!
