Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother (Paperback)Amy Chua (author)
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.

'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.
