    DescriptionUpdated 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.

    Review quote
    'Blissfully funny' India Knight, Sunday Times When an entire nation reacts so strongly to something you know you have hit a nerve. And Amy did ... she should be applauded for raising these issues with a thoughtful, humorous and authentic voice Sheryl Sandberg (author of LEAN IN), Time magazine's '100 most influential people in the world' 'Millions of British children could use a Tiger Mother in their tank' Allison Pearson, Daily Telegraph 'A treat from first to last: ruefully funny, endlessly self-deprecating, riven with ironies .. I relished this memoir' Independent 'Entertaining, bracingly honest and, yes, thought-provoking' New York Times
