Book: Stones Into Schools by Greg Mortenson

Greg Mortenson has wrote another book about his experiences in Afghanistan - his first book to receive widespread recognition was Three Cups of Tea.  He has spent more than 15 years promoting literacy and education for girls in Afghanistan and Pakistan.  He is a firm believer that one way to transition the area from conflict to peace is to build relationships and empower the tribal elders in the two countries.  Or, as he puts it - "Drink more tea".  His approach to solving the extremism problem and ending the war in Afghanistan is educating girls - which then lays the groundwork to increase their later prosperity.  His new book is called Stones Into Schools and you can order it from by clicking on the link below:
