really liked it

I loved this book, gave copies to many family and friends, and then came the incredibly disheartening debunking by Jon Krakauer. Yes, education is a powerful tool for building communities. Yes, we all love a good story and it's easier to focus on one man's story than the story of an entire country. But in reality, there are likely thousands of people in Pakistan doing the kind of work attributed to Greg Mortenson. So even if the boundary between non-fiction and fiction is fuzzy in the way this story was told, I still appreciate what it did in terms of giving me a picture of a part of the world I know too little about.
