Who ever said that one person can’t make a difference hasn’t met Greg Mortenson. In 1993 Mortenson went to Pakistan to climb K2, the world’s second tallest peak, were he was going to place a necklace which belonged to his deceased sister Christa. His attempt at the summit failed and after suffering a fall and having become dangerously ill he wondered into the small rural village of Korphe where he was sheltered for seven weeks and nursed back to health. Upon seeing the children huddled in the cold scratching their school lessons in the dirt he vowed to build the impoverished village it’s first school. From this humble beginning sprang the Central Asia Institute which has built over 50 schools in rural Pakistan and Afganistan. An inspiring, thought provoking read.

It has never been more important time for all of us to read (or hear) this book. This book addresses the most vital question of our day: What is the most effective tool in creating a world free of terrorism? If you can’t wait for a library copy, I humbly suggest that you buy a copy and then pass it on to others and ask that they do the same... or donate it to your nearest library.

Ted's Review said:
Mortenson’s idea is very straightforward: spend money educating children in Islamic countries (girls as well as boys) and people will be less likely to be indoctrinated by extremists. I agree that there would be a much better return on investment for the U.S. investing in schools, rather than bombs. It’s a matter of national security.

this is one of the best books I have ever read, and definately the best nonfiction book I have ever read. Greg Mortenson is amzing, I would have given up long before he got through to the people, and it gave me a whole new perspective on the war. You only ever hear about things from the winners side, and this included the Afghanistan people’s side to the war.
