It would be hard not to like this book! Greg is a down-to-earth, straight forward guy who has accomplished some remarkable things through sheer hard work and determination.
He passes most of the credit on to his motley crew and much of the book centers on how this unlikely group of people came to be committed to building schools for girls. While much of the book is about the serious need Greg encounters there is plenty of humor to lighten the mood. Over and over he stresses the lessons he has learned about how to administer aid effectively. It is interesting to read how other organizations, particularly the US Army, are beginning to recognize his extraordinary abilities.
This story will renew your faith in mankind, warm your heart, and make you want to reach out to people in need around you. The audio version is well read by Atossa Leoni. She ably conveys Greg's depth of commitment to and true love for the people he works so hard to help. The story continues from the best seller "Three cups of Tea", this time written by Greg himself. He involves you in a way that you feel that you are along for the ride.
I was unable to put the book down.

- About This Item?
Exhaustion through many hours of reading and by the emotions that came up within myself let me sleep only for a few hours, just to pick it up again for quenching the thirst of how the story continues. He writes in the first person, which allows more easily to follow his thoughts and fears as well as sharing the thrills. Unashamed about revealing his emotions as well as the inner voice that wants to protect him and the others from harm or other evil he was able to keep me on the edge most of the time.
Without question he gives the credit to all the other heroes in this operation. Every once in a while he adds some grease, where needed to keep the wheels of the good cause moving. He is letting go of responsibilities to the people who have stepped up to the plate and do so with dedication that you will not find in many places around in our society.
It is almost like you are in a movie, this tim written by life and not imagination. My subconscious was daydreaming along and reading in between the lines. Fairly often I went to the center section of the book as well as the other information provided to keep track of what the people and places are looking like. After completion I spent half a day online to find out more about the regions and traveled there through Google Earth as well.
Anyone who wants to have a good chunk of inspiration as well as hope for peace on this earth should definitely read this book.
Actually everyone should read it!!!!!!!!!! Again, Awesome! If you never read another book in your life after this, you need to make time for Three Cups of Tea and Stones into Schools. Both books need to be required reading in schools, in the government, in the military, and in every American household.
It's worth the time, money, and patience. Stones into Schools picks up where Three Cups of Tea leaves off, the goal of getting a school in one of the most remote places in the world. The story weaves back and forth and covers a lot of the same ground of Three Cups of Tea. I like the coverage here much better. This book is leagues better than Three Cups of Tea.
Three Cups of Tea is an important book as it talks more about Mortensen than he would himself.
