Mergablerg, This book. I really struggled on how to rate this because of all the issues surrounding this book and Greg Mortenson in general.

It's hard to overstate how important the work Greg Mortenson does is and he is a very admirable guy... but this book is not very much fun to read. No wonder people have such a bad impression of nonfiction :",",",",",",0,,,,, 22188,Gossip Girl (Gossip Girl
