Waterstones Says

One of the most provocative and explosive parenting books ever written, Chua’s deliciously witty and eloquent account of her extremely strict and pushy parenting regimen is an eye-opening story of cultural expectations and unorthodox expressions of maternal love.

A SUNDAY TIMES AND NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER: the most talked-about book of the year

‘Blissfully funny' India Knight, Sunday Times
'Entertaining, bracingly honest and, yes, thought-provoking' New York Times
‘A treat from first to last: ruefully funny, endlessly self-deprecating, riven with ironies .. I relished this memoir' I

Updated
with a new postscript by Amy Chua and a letter from her eldest daughter, Sophia

Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother
is a story about a mother, two daughters, and two dogs. It was supposed to be a story of how Chinese parents are better at raising kids than Western ones. But instead, it's about a bitter clash of cultures, a fleeting taste of glory, and how you can be humbled by a thirteen-year-old.

Witty, entertaining and provocative, this is a unique and important book that will transform your perspective of parenting forever.
