"ok, so, i can tell the story is wrapping up. Greg is moving on to Afghanistan and has finished making his school in Pakistan,the school, i think, turned out well, except, sadly, terrorists had taken over, in the event 9/11. This event interests me deeply, it was held in New York, by many different cultures together, one of the cultures was Pakistan's. So U.S armies where killing innocent children back in Pakistan with Landmines. It tears Greg apart, but its true, apparently the bombs look like plane food packets.... the book was good, i mean its not over, but the story was moving and the people inspiring and the title is so nice. Even though there was death, which was depressing, such as Haj Ali's death, and miracles, such as Greg getting his check for materials. so.... i would describe this book as.... moving. " said.

"I finally read this short book on my daughter's recommendation. It is the "Young Reader's Edition," so while not a gripping or challenging read, it was inspirational nonetheless. It is a biographical account of philanthropist Greg Mortenson's extraordinary life spent helping others, specifically children in Pakistan. He has done so much to better the lives of so many by raising money, literally building schools, promoting education for girls, and providing other services such as clean water and medical clinics to areas that sorely need it. Equally as important, he has spread awareness of the need that exists today in a part of the world that is most often feared and vilified by us here at home in America. I admire Greg Mortenson greatly and Madisen and I intend to check and see if his young daughter's foundation Pennies for Pencils is still up and running -- if so, we may try to organize a drive at one of our schools!" said.

"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." said.

This is such a great story about Greg Mortenson and his interest in building schools in Afghanistan. I read this book with a student I was tutoring over the summer. There is an adult version, a young adult version and a children's version. All these books tell the story of how this man fought many hardships to get these schools built. I thought it was interesting that once he knew what he wanted to do and tried to start raising funds, no one would help him. He had become desperate until he finally almost lost all faith and suddenly someone believed in his work and pulled through. He even contacted some very well known people who, at first, were not interested, but as his work became more well know all of a sudden they threw their hats and money into the ring!

This book has a wonderful message for people of all ages and that is why there are so many version out there for people to read and share with their families!

" I'd actually give it 3.5 stars... I read this book in one day, an easy read. I found it enjoyable enough and it also hit a lot on equality for women which I appreciated " said.

"Pedantic in the extreme and an indulgently self-congratulatory book (self-observation that he [Greg:] deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for his work. But, I suppose, if a school can be built because someone is inept at mountain-climbing, then it's a Good Thing.

The Intent of this work is decent, the Reason seems quite shallow.

I've compared some chapters between the "adult" and "young readers" versions, and find Mortenson is no less pedantic towards his "adult" readers, although the glossary seems to be slightly less packed with holding-you-by-the-hand-and-coddling-you-because-Greg-Mortenson-thinks-you're-ignorant definitions.
