I read Three Cups of Tea about a year ago.  I really enjoyed it. I've just finished the Kite Runner, which gave me some of the same feel, even though that is a work of fiction.

Yeah I nabbed a couple of Transmetropolitan books from the library on someone's suggestion. I never got on with them, giving up on one within just a few pages. MK just sits on the loo longer than me!
