Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortensen

I don't know how to express how this book has affected me. Every educator, every politician, everyone should read this book. Education (a balanced education) is arguably the key to peace. To quote the coauthor, "Mortenson goes to war with the root causes of terror every time he offers a student a chance to receive a balanced education, rather than attend an extremist madrassa." I think Greg Mortensen deserves to be nominated for a Noble Peace Prize. Chapman University should start a Pennies for Peace drive to support his efforts.
