Book Overview

Courageous and thought-provoking. --David Brooks, The New York Times

Breathtakingly personal . . . Chua's] tale is as compelling as a good thriller. --The Financial Times

F]ascinating. . . . the most stimulating book on the subject of child rearing since Dr. Spock. --Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Chua's memoir, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, is a quick, easy read. It's smart, funny, honest and a little heartbreaking . . . --Chicago Sun-Times

At once provocative and laugh-out-loud funny, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother ignited a global parenting debate with its story of one mother's journey in strict parenting. Amy Chua argues that Western parenting tries to respect and nurture children's individuality, while Chinese parents typically believe that arming children with skills, strong work habits, and inner confidence prepares them best for the future. Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother chronicles Chua's iron-willed decision to raise her daughters, Sophia and Lulu, the Chinese way - and the remarkable, sometimes heartbreaking results her choice inspires. Achingly honest and profoundly challenging, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother is one of the most talked-about books of our times.

   Very eye opening
I really loved this book. This is normally not something I would pick up off of the shelf, and quite frankly I was coerced into reading this by a friend.
The moment I started, I didn't put it down. The book was so eye-opening and helped me look at parenting from a parent's point of view, something I never really did given I do not have kids of my own. Not only that, but it also motivated me to strive for success within my own life.
Excellent read!
