This is old news for this community I am sure, but it is a book I have read, reread, and purchased several times to give away, loan, and re-loan. One of the most inspiring books I've read. A MUST!!!

It's true! This book is amazing. Did you know that they have just released 2 new versions—one for children and one for young readers. It's very exciting that the book is now accessible to younger minds as well!

Hi Corine - I did NOT know I will have to hit up my local bookseller to get me one of those - that's fantastic. A big part of being exposed to all these inspiring people and ideas is trying to find a way to pass it on to the younger generation in language that is accessible to them. Presenting it in a form they can relate to. Thanks for the info!! Suzanne

I've heard a lot about it! I would love to read it. I always try to focus on a country and read a few books on it, I read 2 books on Iran. Now I can start with Pakistan, I just purchased one of Benazzir Bhutto's books!

This is so wonderful that I found this post in the group! I am currently reading Three Cups of Tea by recommendation from a good friend of mine in the Peace Corps. I am very much enjoying it! What do you feel is the best part? So far I am where Mortenson just got to Khorphe and it is winter and they want to build a bridge before building the school... I will post more thoughts and would love to hear yours.

Much peace,
