One man's campaign to build schools in the most dangerous, remote, and anti-American reaches of Asia: in 1993 Greg Mortenson was an American mountain-climbing bum wandering emaciated and lost through Pakistan's Karakoram. After he was taken in and nursed back to health by the people of a Pakistani village, he promised to return one day and build them a school. From that rash, earnest promise grew one of the most incredible humanitarian campaigns of our time--Mortenson's one-man mission to counteract extremism by building schools, especially for girls, throughout the breeding ground of the Taliban. In a region where Americans are often feared and hated, he has survived kidnapping, death threats, and wrenching separations from his wife and children. But his success speaks for itself--at last count, his Central Asia Institute had built fifty-five schools.--From publisher description.… (lisätietoja)

Before I get started, I just want to say that no review I could ever write ever would ever portray how much this book sucked for me. To me, Three Cups of Tea is the perfect embodiment and representation of the most tragically horrible book I've ever read.
In fact, for you today, I'm going to make a list of the 10 most tragic things in Three Cups of Tea.

In 1993 the author drifted into an impoverished Pakistan village. Moved by the villagers' kindness, he promised to return and build a school. Over the next decade, 55 schools were built--especially for girls. The author's story is about a riveting adventure and a testament to the power of humanitarian spirit.
  BLTSbraille | Oct 8, 2021 |
I read this book many years ago - 1990s I think. I never read the sequel because I think by the time I became aware of the sequel, the scandal had already broken about how 3 cups was a total lie. I do remember liking the first book - 3 cups. I had no reason not to believe it at that time. I am unsure how to rate it now, since I know i enjoyed it, when I did not know it was a total lie. I dont know how i feel about it now. So I think I will give it 2 stars - and treat it as if this book were just a novel. If it had been true then I would have given it 4 or 5 stars. ( )

Not many American have their photos hanging in taxis in Afghanistan or Pakistan, unless it's used for target practice, I imagine. But the author, who has embarked on a (dare I use the word?) crusade to raise money and build schools in those Countries, is probably the sole exception. His efforts, begun as a thank you for a village who helped him regain his health after a climbing incident in Pakistan, has resulted in dozens of schools being built where none existed before. His mission to educate young women, in the local ways without imposing a western or Christian curriculum, is laudable, and this book describing his story is an inspiring story.

The downside is the follow-up book by Jon Krakauer, "Three Cups of Deceit", in which Krakauer details financial improprieties by Mortenson, as well as explaining that many of the most dramatic stories in "Three Cups of Tea", those which make the story so compelling, were totally fabricated. Those invented stories make for a compelling book, however it becomes a letdown to find out that Mortenson diverts so much of the donated money to his personal use rather than for the students he purports to support.

I would rather give this book 3.5 stars. I felt the writing was cold and impersonal for most of the book but respectful of the people it characterized. I love Greg's mission in life and can relate to him on that level which is why his passion resonated with me so much. This is a fair book. Not spectacular but worth reading if only to educate oneself on the state of education in Pakistan. ( )

This is a wonderful book that gives the reader an unprecedented and very personal insight into a people that I had no knowledge of before reading it.
 
Captivating and suspenseful, with engrossing accounts of both hostilities and unlikely friendships, this book will win many readers' hearts.

"The story of how this happened is a cliffhanger as well as an first-hand introduction to the people and places of a region little understood by most Americans. The subtitle, "One Man's Mission to Fight Terrorism and Build Nations . . . One School at a Time," underscores the motivation behind his work."

"Answering by delivering what his country will not, Mortenson is "fighting the war on terror the way I think it should be conducted," Relin writes. This inspiring, adventure-filled book makes that case admirably."

The little red light had been flashing for five minutes before Bhangoo paid it any attention. "The fuel gages on these old aircraft are notoriously unreliable," Brigadier General Bhangoo, one of Pakistan's most experienced high-altitude pilots, said, tapping. I wasn't sure if that was meant to make me feel better.

The only way we can defeat terrorism is if people in this country where terrorists exist learn to respect and love Americans...and if we can respect and love these people here. What's the difference between them becoming a productive local citizen or a terrorist? I think the key is education.
