Everywhere he goes, people line up to listen to his simple message about how to change the world. Standing room-only crowds have become a trend since the publication of Three Cups of Tea, which has graced The New York Times paperback nonfiction bestseller list for more than two years, half of that at #1. This phenomenal success led it to be adapted into a young readers version (Puffin 2009) and a children’s picture book, Listen to the Wind (Dial 2009), both of which were instant New York Times #1 bestsellers.
