    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)"
    "Unique point of view"

    What did you love best about Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother?

    Amy Chua is an ernest and dedicated Tiger Mom. It was good to hear the story in her voice because she captured nuances another narrator might have missed. Her story is engaging and will really make you think about our Western way of viewing achievement, dedication, discipline and individualism. She made me want to add more discipline but also made me aware of how we place importance on being social. We might eliminate so many play-dates and add more music practice in our household, but maybe not. See what you think!
