Krakauer dismantles the Greg Mortenson story

We've just received Three Cups of Deceit, an exposé of Greg Mortenson, author of the bestselling memoirs Three Cups of Tea and Stones into Schools. Deceit author Jon Krakauer is himself no stranger to bestseller list. There's a truth-ferreting spirit in his books Into Thin Air and Under the Banner of Heaven, so expect a solid work of investigative reporting here. To further demonstrate that this is no mere hatchet job for personal gain,the back cover states that "100% of Jon Krakauer's proceeds from the sale of [this book] will be donated to the "Stop Girl Trafficking" project of the American Himalayan Foundation".
