Publisher's Summary

"A lot of people wonder how Chinese parents raise such stereotypically successful kids. They wonder what Chinese parents do to produce so many math whizzes and music prodigies, what it’s like inside the family, and whether they could do it too. Well, I can tell them, because I’ve done it…."

Brilliant, funny, self-deprecating

I really enjoyed this book. Amy Chua is a gifted comic writer, her humour is wry and her timing is perfect. She delivers one-liners and put-downs (many aimed at herself) which made me laugh out loud, especially being a mother myself and recognising many situations she describes with her daughters. I almost howled with laughter when she gets super-competitive about her dog as well. Chua is priceless, and her reading of her own memoir is flawless, her voice captivating and very ironic. How can this woman be also a professor of law? She is monstrously gifted - or just raised that way by her parents!

Interesting to hear how others do it...

Heard about this book after seeing a clip of the 'controversial' author on Oprah. Having now 'read' the book I found it interesting to hear how another mother decided to bring up her daughters and the results her methods received. This book has several stories which I found myself sharing or discussing with friends so it's definitely worth a read, even though you probably won't agree with all her views.

an easy listen

An interesting perspective and first hand account of a parenting journey. The language is quite accessible and doesn’t require much thought
