One of the most inspiring books I’ve read in the last few years is Greg Mortenson’s best seller, Three Cups of Tea. (See the Hiking Lady Book Review of Three Cups of Tea)
Tonight on 60 Minutes they did a story on how Greg Mortsenson, the now famous mountain climber turned humanitarian, potentially extremely exaggerated or even completely made up some of the stories in his book! There are now questions as to whether he is abusing the charitable organization which he runs, The Central Asia Institute.
Do you think he’s a fraud? Is Greg Mortenson exaggerating stories for personal profit from the sale of his book? Is someone out to defame Greg, or does he deserve this?
I certainly don’t know the answers, but I hope that Greg really is a good guy! I’ll be so disappointed if these accusations are true!
