Rated 1 out of 5 by from Much of this book simply isn't true CBS News did a devastating expose of Greg Mortensen, his book and his charity a few months ago. I'd take a look at that before buying this book: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/04/15/60minutes/main20054397.shtml

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring for students I read the adult version first and was so inspired that one man can make such a difference in the lives of others in Pakistan near the Afghanistan border , no less !! This version is perfect for teen readers with anywhere from gr 5-12 skills. There is a new way to work in developing countries that respects and uses the talents of the people there. Our agencies and governments could learn a lot from this man's methods before they start pouring money and people into projects that aren't 90% efficient in actually aiding the nations they are trying to help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Hello, One day my daughter came home from school and told me about this new book she read *Hint*. She told me it was written by the guy whose charity was the one her class raised money for,(they raised over 700$, and that's only 25 kids, so that's a LOT) Pennies for Peace. If you read the book, you will find that Pennies for Peace is one of Greg Mortenson's charities that raises money for children in Afghanistan and Pakistan. My daughter told me she LOVED the book so I took it out of the library to read it. It is a phenominal story about a rockclimber, his bad luck with raising money, and his determination to help these poor children who want to go to school desperately. The photographs in the book help you understand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read it! A failed climber turned humanitarian, this book is about failure, success and above it all, a truly inspiring story about how the perseverance of one person can make a big difference in the world. Greg Mortenson is nominated for the Noble Peace award this year because of this true story. If your a climber, or outdoor enthusiast his story makes you think twice about what it really means to conquer new challenges. This guy doesn't get enough credit for what he has done so give it a shot, and pass it on!
