I read this book recently this year. And I was inspired. I thought so highly of Greg Mortenson and the power of the individual. How one idea can lead to a mini revolution. How one person can change a life.
I even wrote another blog about it - you can see it on facebook on the Timeless Books page, if you get time.
That's why I was surprised when another person I admired - Jack Krakauer, has criticized Greg Mortenson and the Central Asian Institute and accused him of lying. Of fabricating most of the story in order to sell books.
I love the mountains and I love trekking. I wish I could do more for the mountains. I wish I could trek more.
I think I'll get the full story by reading Three Cups of Deceit, written by Jack Krakauer. In that he documents his findings and arguments. That will be an interesting read.
