“Proposes a kinder, gentler blending of East and West…. China has yet to produce a single Nobel Prize winner in the sciences or a Steve Jobs or Bill Gates…. From this stunning throw-down, Huang continues his intriguing contrarian analysis, offering a perplexed yet loving native son’s humanizing perspective on Chinese culture.”

The Hybrid Tiger explains many of the differences between Chinese and American education. Both have their strengths and weaknesses. We can learn from one another.”
—DIANE RAVITCH, author of Reign of Error

“A compelling and provocative must-read for anyone interested in knowing more about the cultural intersection of Asian and American educational approaches. . . . Huang’s ambitious, accessible, and important work strongly argues that we have much to learn from each other—a lesson that transcends education.”
—Michael G. Hirschfeld, rector, St. Paul’s School, Concord, NH

“East meets West in Huang’s provocative and revealing analysis of the potential rewards of classroom cultural convergence. The author grabs the tiger by the tail to point out the opportunities available in combining inherently Asian tenets governing success with American creativity and independence. A must-read for anyone concerned with the future of education in the United States.”
—Jean Hitchcock, executive director, Signature School, a nationally-ranked International Baccalaureate charter high school, Evanston, IN
“Huang’s thoughtful praise and critically constructive observations of two widely regarded and often-replicated educational systems readily translate into practical applications for improving today’s schools. What a pleasure it is to see the personal and familial value assigned to education heralded as critical to a student’s success at the primary and secondary level.”
—Thomas M. Kelly, PhD, headmaster, Horace Mann School, New York, NY
