three cups of bullshitAccording to a segment on 60 Minutes, Greg Mortenson’s book Three Cups of Tea is one cup short of reality. After exposing one questionable aspect after another, the show featured John Krakauer, author of Into the Wild and In Thin Air, saying that Mortenson’s book “is a beautiful story, and it’s a lie.” Mortenson refused to comment, but in his defense author James Frey said, “Three cups, two cups, a million little pieces of cups.
