I liked the story of this book, though the writing was a little overwrought at times. It's a pretty interesting account of a guy who builds schools in Pakistan (and now Afghanistan) that educate boys and girls in a region of the world where education isn't at a premium. Everything about this guy is written in the superlative, and that gets a little old over the course of the book. What he's doing is laudable and pretty damned awesome, but I came away from the book thinking that I wouldn't want to have anything to do with him personally. That said, it's a pretty good account aboug a part of the world that gets a lot of attention from Americans who are really uninterested in actually understanding what's going on over there.
