Three Cups of Tea!

When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.
Persian Proverb.

With this statement the author of  Three Cups of Tea started his first chapter of this  book.

The book's title comes from a Balti proverb:
"The first time you share tea with a Balti, you are a stranger. The second time you take tea, you are an honored guest. The third time you share a cup of tea, you become family..."
Shortly, this is a book about man succeeded to change part of this universe though books and learning, while Famous leaders failed to do with bombs. Also, he convinced the religion leaders in this area, though his patience and faith. 

Since the release of this book, Others were born . Last one was: Stones into Schools: Promoting Peace with Books, Not Bombs, in Afghanistan and Pakistan was released on December 1, 2009. Sir,...Good steps! I hope other authors share the same great journey. Who can do...?

“ What Greg understands better than most—and what he practices more than anyone else I know—is the simple truth that all of us are better off when all of us have the opportunity to learn, especially our children. By helping them learn and grow, he’s shaping the very future of a region and giving hope to an entire generation.” —Admiral Mike Mullen, Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff
