Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson
I finally read this book! It's been on my list for quite some time, and I'm glad I finally had a chance to sit down and read it. It's a good way to end my reading list from 2011, since this will, most likely, be the last book I read this year.
There's not much I want to say other than I was inspired by Dr. Greg's passion and drive to make a bad situation better. I'm not sure I'd have the same courage he has. I'm much more comfortable staying at home working from here. But he got out there, risking his life for the children in Pakistan and Afghanistan. I was touched.
Just another reminder of how important education is, how it changes not only individuals, but communities and nations. It's worth reading.
