    What would happen if you were visited by your younger self, and got a chance for a do-over?Alice Love is twenty-nine years old, madly in love with her husband, and pregnant with their first child. So imagine her surprise when, after a fall, she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! she HATES the gym!) and discovers that she's actually thirty-nine, has three children, and is in the midst of an acrimonious divorce.

    This one reeled me in completely. I only listen during exercise and couldn't wait to exercise (for a change!). I loved how the story unfolded, little by little, changing perspectives. Also loved how it made me think about how relationships change, little by little, over the years, and how much we take for granted.

    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)"
    "Motherhood food for thought....."

    One of my friends recommended this and I was really skeptical, but I enjoyed it way more than I thought I would. It gave me a different perspective on parenting that, while not my style, certainly made me more empathetic to "Chinese mothers" that I know (that are of many different ethnicities). It is definitely worth a listen if you are a parent, or just want to expose yourself to a different point of view.
