|"Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother" is an awe-inspiring, often hilarious, and unerringly honest story of one mother''s exercise in extreme parenting, revealing the rewards--and the costs--of raising her daughters the Chinese way.|
From the Publisher:
The Yale Law School professor and author of the best-selling World on Fire traces the rewards and pitfalls of a Chinese mother's exercise in extreme parenting, describing the exacting standards applied to grades, music lessons and avoidance of Western cultural practices.
"Having read the Wall Street Journal excerpt, and decided, like everyone else, that Chua was intimidating, impressive and Must Be Stopped, I sincerely hoped the book would be a bore, full of niggly detail about rehearsals, competitions and her ancestral origins. Sadly, I must inform you that BATTLE HYMN OF THE TIGER MOTHER is entertaining, bracingly honest and, yes, thought-provoking. Many parents who revile Chua's conduct are probably, nonetheless, seriously considering Suzuki for the first time." - Susan Dominus 02/13/2011
