Product description

This 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 13-year-old.

Review quote

"[A] riveting read... Far from being strident, the book's tone is slightly rueful, frequently self-deprecating and entirely aware of its author's enormities... Chua's story is far more complicated and interesting than what you've heard to date -- and well worth picking up... I guarantee that if you read the book, there'll undoubtedly be places where you'll cringe in recognition, and others where you'll tear up in empathy."--SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
