Amy Chua is the John M. Duff Professor of Law at Yale Law School. Her first book, "World on Fire: How Exporting Free Market Democracy Breeds Ethnic Hatred and Global Instability," a "New York Times" bestseller, was selected by "The Economist" as one of the best books of 2003. Her second book, "Day of Empire: How Hyperpowers Rise to Global Dominance--and Why They Fall," was a critically acclaimed "Foreign Affairs" bestseller. She lives with her husband, two daughters, and two Samoyeds in New Haven, Connecticut.

A great insight to "Chinese style parenting", culture and the lives of the authors family.
The audio book which was narrated by the author Amy Chua, (which created more meaning and depth to the story) was full of funny and emotional stories, some of which I could relate to.
Would love to hear/read a follow up book, so see how Amy and her family are doing now and I would highly recommend "Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother"
