The Greg Mortenson Saga Continues

After Sunday's 60 Minutes piece, Greg Mortenson might have thought the worst of the accusations regarding his book Three Cups of Tea and his financial relationship with the Central Asia Institute were behind him, but apparently author Jon Krakauer still had quite a bit of damaging information up his sleeve, releasing a 71 page mini-book on the new site Byliner.com as a free PDF, which refers to Mortenson's books as "full of lies". However, Mortenson responded to many of the allegations on Outside Magazine's website, sort of blaming the inaccuracies in the book on the co-author.

Regardless, with Mortenson's publisher now reviewing the book's accuracy, this story may not go away for awhile.
