Greg Mortenson spoke to a large group of people from my company a couple of years ago. I remember sitting there listening to this man I'd never heard of, and leaning over to my friend to say, "Is it just me or does this guy seem like a colossal douchebag?" My friend compared him to a snake oil salesman.

But we had to be wrong. Right? I mean, he'd been doing this for decades and had sold millions of books.

Less than a year later the top headline on CNN.com confirmed our suspicions. Except he was way worse than we ever could have known.

Krakauer nails it again.
