I read his book. I thought is was grandiose, self-serving, and egotistical. He sure pats himself on the back a lot, as in, look at how great I am. Now I don't know if I believe anything in that book.I will just keep thinking of all the wonderful people who help the world, who don't have to publish a book about themselves helping the world.
I read both books. I didn't get that impression at all, if anything I wondered how he could spend his last dime trying to put together funds to pay for someone's school on the other side of the world. I will continue to support the CAI.
This story was no more egotistical than one of my other favorites Eat, Pray, Love or many of the other books out there promoting a story. I loved these books and was there messy housekeeping-probably. Mortenson is a human being and appears to be taking on too much. It appears CAI will change things for the better. I still believe the story and believe in their mission.
