From the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Three Cups of Tea comes the continuing story of this determined humanitarian’s efforts to promote peace through education.

In this dramatic first-person narrative, Greg Mortenson picks up where Three Cups of Tea left off in 2003, recounting his relentless, ongoing efforts to establish schools for girls in Afghanistan; his extensive work in Azad Kashmir and Pakistan after a massive earthquake hit the region in 2005; and the unique ways he has built relationships with Islamic clerics, militia commanders, and tribal leaders. He shares for the first time his broader vision to promote peace through education and literacy, as well as touching on military matters, Islam, and women—all woven together with the many rich personal stories of the people who have been involved in this remarkable two-decade humanitarian effort.

Since the 2006 publication of Three Cups of Tea, Mortenson has traveled across the US—and the world—to share his vision with hundreds of thousands of people. He has met with heads of state, top military officials, and leading politicians who all seek his advice and insight. The continued phenomenal success of Three Cups of Tea proves that there is an eager and committed audience for Mortenson’s work and message.

    " Fascinating story with good lessons for community building - one of which, one Mortenson does not appear to get, is that his organization is probably way to dependent on him. Nonetheless, good reading. "

    " Another book that needs an editor. This is not nearly as good as Three Cups of Tea. It's self indulgent and a bit preachy at times which is a shame. The historical and geographical information that is shared is excellent...if you can stick with it. The messages are lost in all the pages. "

    " Even with all the controversy, his message is true. Education is the answer. "

    " Just read this Christmas gift from Alex-I picked it up on Christmas day and couldn't put it down until I finished it last night-might go back and read Three Cups of Tea again-Greg Mortenson is amazing, an inspiration, this is all quite humbling, and at the same time quite compeling-his energy and devotion to the children is inspirational. I highly recommend to anyone interested in todays issues, solutions for peace and all that is happening in Afghanistan and Pakistan-he is also an excellent resource on the current political landscape.
