Wonderful story of real life Heroism
Contrary to what some people might say, I thought this book was very well written. Easy to understand and hard to put down when started, I fail to understand why the people who have reviewed before me see this as badly written. I did notice Relin was diverted to give histories of people when he didn't need to, but in some places this suited the story very well. Overall I found this book an extraordinary read that both shocked and thrilled me, I would recommend this book to anyone, finding it as a good read to all ages.

Three Cups of Tea
The best book I have read. El mejor libro
I recommend this book to be part of Summer reading for different levels in schools to show our children that we take everything for granted in America. To show how other kids in other countries are willing to learn without having all the materials/facilities that we have in the US. This book shows that we can conquer peace in the world by helping others. God Bless Mr.Mortenson and his family.

Great Book
This was a wonderful book with an even better message. Greg Mortenson is an inspiration to all to achieve your dreams and make them happen. This book was written to explain the mission of one man who was able to connect with a group of people that needed his help. He has dedicated his life to helping to educate children especially girls. He believes along with myself that educating girls can reduce terrorism and bring peace.

The hope of education through a real page-turner!
I read only a few of the other comments, and although I did notice some writing problems, I was definitely not bored! I was glad to get another viewpoint on the Muslim culture and a clearer understanding of how the Taliban came about and who the members are, although I keep in mind that this viewpoint is also somewhat slanted.

The true importance of this book is the exposition of the need for education and educational facilities in this area and culture, and of the hope for the future it holds. This is true for all parts of the world. Greg Mortenson is to be commended for his determination in the face of all the sacrifices he has made and risks he has taken.

Read this one and see what I mean.

Three Cups of Tea
Thrilling and filled will complications, the Three cups of tea shows that the only way to fight terrorism is through education.

Three Cups of Tea
Unquestionably the most remarkable true story I've ever read. It is a "must "read for anyone interested in either adventure or peace. Perfect for a book club! Kudos to Greg Mortenson, who surely deserves the Nobel Peace Price for his untiring humanitarian work in some of the roughest terrain in the world.

I thought that we didn't have real heros in this wide world but Greg impressed me, and he is the true hero! He is my hero, I agree that if you read this book he will be your hero too. This is the best book and he is caring about all the people like the global community.

Learn a Lesson.
For all those people who were too sidetracked by the writing...GET OVER IT. You don't see the forest for the trees! Look beyond and see the story of what a person can do for others. It serves as an example to all of us in this day of the Me First society. IT IS NOT SELF SERVING. I have seen Mortensen on Book TV and on the TODAY show. He is a modest man. I wish more Americans would learn a lesson from this man and others like him. I thank God for people like him.
