Three Cups of Tea
Kathrine Holyoak's review
May 27, 2011
I have such conflicting feelings about this book! I was 1/4 of the way into it (and connecting) when my 6th grade daughter said, "Oh, my class talked about how sad it is that the book is not true." I was devastated. I felt emotionally gyped. I hopped online to fact check. I found the 60 Minutes story and attendent backlash. I was sad/mad at the author. However, I decided to continue reading it for the general principles, if not the actual details. I skimmed some, but read the majority. At the conclusion I decided that if even a few of the stories approach a version of truth, the book has merit. I applaud Greg for any goodness he delivered to our aching world. I believe in the cure and healing power of education. My recent election to School Board is a setting that this topic is meaningful. I never tire of success stories where education is the catalyst. I admire Greg for being man enough to even begin the journey from empathy to action- more than the majority ever do.
