      I decided to put it in my bag unmolested for a few days before I mustered up enough desire to finish it As a matter of fact, its edition is intended for young readers However, I swerved off after having watched the report of 60 Minutes by CBS News about the author s credibility on Youtube in 2011 According to the news, the book contained fabrications and he mismanaged Central Asia Institute, the charity he co founded In an interview with author John Krauker, he said that it is a beautiful story, [...]

      I m not really a fan of true stories Fiction is the section of the library that I m always poking around in But THREE CUPS OF TEA, even the Young Reader s Edition, by Greg Mortenson, totally enveloped me in its adventure Who knew that one mountain climber could experience so much, and help so many people Well, apparently the Chief of this village knew.I could not believe how sad this story was, while at the same time enlightening While children all over the U.S sit in classrooms with desks, text [...]

      Premettendo che una stellina per le scuole che Mortenson ha costruito nonostante tutto, non ho potuto apprezzare il libro perch a Greg Mortenson un farabutto b l edizione che ho comprato Questa copertina pi bella, scelgo questa l edizione ridottissima, a mo di favoletta per giovani lettori my bad, perch riportato il bollino in bella vista sulla copertina, ma io dormo, il libro costava 90 centesimi e quindi ciaone DEcco, dunque Prontissima a prendermi la colpa per la b , ma credo sarei riuscita a [...]

      Greg Mortenson quotes Mother Teresa and lives by her devotion to help others, What we are trying to do may be a drop in the ocean, but the ocean would be less because of the missing drop Providing an education to kids and importantly girls, in Afghanistan and Pakistan is Greg s way to enhance peace and provide people with a reason to live over die I thought the story was great I have true admiration for a man that cherishes education and others as much as he does It is an inspiring story of how [...]

      I m having a difficult time getting through this one I m about 1 4 through Everyone says, Oh that is such a good book I m just not feeling it, though Update I m finally finished, and I didn t think it was a great book I have mixed feelings about the work Mortenson is doing in the middle east, and I believe there is a lot of self promotion on his part He has another book out After looking at it, particularly the pictures included, I believe it shows just how much of a personality he s become So, [...]

      Today I would love to write the review of Three Coups of Tea A couple of days ago, I read the book in English It was very inspiring and motivating Have you heard about the name, Greg Mortenson To tell you the truth, before I read the book, I didn t know about him at all.He is kind of an American hero I think most of people know about Mother Teresa because of her great activities I can tell you that Greg Mortenson looks like her because of his great activities He is still struggling to build up s [...]

      Pedantic in the extreme and an indulgently self congratulatory book self observation that he Greg deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for his work But, I suppose, if a school can be built because someone is inept at mountain climbing, then it s a Good Thing.The Intent of this work is decent, the Reason seems quite shallow.I ve compared some chapters between the adult and young readers versions, and find Mortenson is no less pedantic towards his adult readers, although the glossary seems to be slightl [...]

      Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin is a very touching book that describes the struggles of the children of Pakistan and Afghanistan who can t get an education like American children An American man who is Greg Mortenson tries to climb the second highest mountain in honor of his younger sister but instead gets stuck in a village where he witnesses small children getting their education After seeing this he can t bear to see them in pain so as a result he decides to build s [...]

      Okay, my reviews for this book are 99% negative, for many reasons Reason one I was bored OUT OF MY MIND By that I mean I don t care Don t get me wrong, I sympathize the children in Afghanistan and Pakistan that go without the necessities that I don t think about, but I really don t care I don t know why but I just don t Reason two This was for school All books chosen by schools my school at least are so unbearable that I want to die because they follow stupid guidelines One of the guidelines tha [...]

      I read The Young Reader s Edition of this book, and that turned out to be a good thing 1 It was abridged 2 It included simple definitions for words and terms that young readers might not know This guy goes to Pakistan to climb a mountain, gets lost and ends up in a very small village, where the people nurse him back to health One day he sees the village children all sitting together outside, quietly working, and without any adults He asks, and is told that they are in school They are reading wha [...]

      I really enjoyed this book I didn t know what to expect at first, but it really enthralled me and I wanted to know I ended up with the Young Reader s Edition from the library not realizing it at first and I would also like to make note that in the book itself, the Young Reader s version is actually called the Young Adult version there s a difference I found that this version moved everything along quickly, sometimes too quickly, but I got the most out of it because it really focused on the chil [...]

      Three Cups Of Tea This heart throbbing story that pulls at your heart strings was amazing I do have to say though, this book was very well written, but seemed almost too well written It had so many details that I wouldn t even be able to remember It seemed like this book was looked over carefully and was written veryatly And with all the controversy of what is true and what is not, Greg is a liar, he did this and didnt do that, the whole nine yards, made it hard to concentrate on the real meanin [...]

      So I have had this book in the back of my mind for a while now, but haven t really come across it when checking out books I was looking through the YA kid section of the e library with my youngest son the other day and stumbled upon the young reader s edition and decided it would be good summer reading for all three of us myself and my two boys.Besides chronicling his work building bridges and schools and the CAI foundation, Three Cups of Tea seeks to bridge cultural gaps Mortenson makes several [...]

      Greg Mortenson is a man that started out to climb the worlds toughest and second highest mountain K 2 he didn t accomplish it, but other men have said he is trying to climb an even harder mountain building school for children He is a really great man Sometimes celebreties are over pestered with their fans When they are home with their family, it is family time It was amazing how the villages would try to bribe him to get schools He later decided it was best to start the CAI Central Asia Institut [...]

      This book was about Greg Mortenson who was a mountain climber He was climbing K2 when they couldn t make it to the summit because they had to bring a sick friend down Climbing back up was exhausting because the air was thinner the higher they went Greg found himself coming down the side of the mountain and ended up getting lost He did this twice and ended up in the wrong village on the bottom of the mountain The village took him in and helped him get his strength back and after he was ready to l [...]

      I was always somewhat interested in reading this book because I ve heard a lot about it and that is was an inspiring story The writing, however, leaves something to be desired I know there is some controversy about the facts of the story but I didn t really care about that It s meant to inspire us to make changes in the world I don t need to know if every detail is in the right setting or correct order or whatnot I thought what this guy did was really great I enjoyed the struggle of the journey [...]

    26. Erin on said:

      I really enjoyed this A while ago I tried to read the adult version, and just didn t make it through This book would be great to read and discuss with a group of kids learning about the middle east, or even about current events Mortenson s passion and his honest account even about his own stupidity or poor planning make for an earnest and informative book It definitely makes the point that there is truly nothing like a good education, and that somewhere, priorities have gotten out of whack.This [...]

      Published Age Level 10 18This is such a great story about Greg Mortenson and his interest in building schools in Afghanistan I read this book with a student I was tutoring over the summer There is an adult version, a young adult version and a children s version All these books tell the story of how this man fought many hardships to get these schools built I thought it was interesting that once he knew what he wanted to do and tried to start raising funds, no one would help him He had become desp [...]

      I have such conflicting feelings about this book I was 1 4 of the way into it and connecting when my 6th grade daughter said, Oh, my class talked about how sad it is that the book is not true I was devastated I felt emotionally gyped I hopped online to fact check I found the 60 Minutes story and attendent backlash I was sad mad at the author However, I decided to continue reading it for the general principles, if not the actual details I skimmed some, but read the majority At the conclusion I de [...]

      I finally read this short book on my daughter s recommendation It is the Young Reader s Edition, so while not a gripping or challenging read, it was inspirational nonetheless It is a biographical account of philanthropist Greg Mortenson s extraordinary life spent helping others, specifically children in Pakistan He has done so much to better the lives of so many by raising money, literally building schools, promoting education for girls, and providing other services such as clean water and medic [...]

      ok, so, i can tell the story is wrapping up Greg is moving on to Afghanistan and has finished making his school in Pakistan,the school, i think, turned out well, except, sadly, terrorists had taken over, in the event 9 11 This event interests me deeply, it was held in New York, by many different cultures together, one of the cultures was Pakistan s So U.S armies where killing innocent children back in Pakistan with Landmines It tears Greg apart, but its true, apparently the bombs look like plane [...]
