Greg Mortenson tells his story of building schools throughout Pakistan and Afghanistan. Yes, I’m aware of the controversy, and there is good reason to believe many parts of the story are fictionalized. In other words, it’s a book “based on a true story,” as the movie folks would say. So, read it as fiction. Still an inspiring read. I can assure you, many of the sentiments and observations in the book come from someone who does know the feeling of delivering education to children starving for learning.
