I am so grateful for audio books. I can quench my love for reading and still drive, run a half marathon, or do my household chores!

    All decent parents want to do what's best for their children. What Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother reveals is that the Chinese just have a totally different idea of how to do that. Western parents try to respect their children's individuality, encouraging them to pursue their true passions and providing a nurturing environment. The Chinese believe that the best way to protect your children is by preparing them for the future and arming them with skills, strong work habits, and inner confidence.

    Diana - Audible says: "Surprisingly touching (and well-read)"
    "Cheers to Chinese Parenting"
    Overall

    Way to go to Amy Chua to buck the soft expectations of modern parenting! Her results speak volumes. If only our "rebellious" children could be as successful and happy as her daughter Lulu. I know I will be employing some of her methods with my daughter, Sofia; and I couldn't agree more with many of her methods and mantras! The book is very well written, and a pleasure to read. I plan on sharing it with all my sisters and with my mother.

    Discover magazine recently called Richard Dawkins "Darwin's Rottweiler" for his fierce and effective defense of evolution. Prospect magazine voted him among the top three public intellectuals in the world (along with Umberto Eco and Noam Chomsky). Now Dawkins turns his considerable intellect on religion, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.

    Rick Just says: "Dangerous Religion"
    "thought inspiring"
    Overall

    This book asked good questions and gave solid scientific rebuttal for each one. It was based science and biological processes that do well to explain the world. I began looking at people's words and actions in a different light; including my own.
