Praise

“Few have the guts to parent in public. Amy [Chua]’s memoir is brutally honest, and her willingness to share her struggles is a gift. Whether or not you agree with her priorities and approach, she should be applauded for raising these issues with a thoughtful, humorous and authentic voice.” — TIME Magazine

Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother is entertaining, bracingly honest and, yes, thought-provoking.” — THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

“[A] riveting read… Far from being strident, the book’s tone is slightly rueful, frequently self-deprecating and entirely aware of its author’s enormities… Chua’s story is far more complicated and interesting than what you’ve heard to date — and well worth picking up… I guarantee that if you read the book, there’ll undoubtedly be places where you’ll cringe in recognition, and others where you’ll tear up in empathy.” — SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

“Courageous and thought-provoking.” — David Brooks, THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Breathtakingly personal…[Chua’s] tale is as compelling as a good thriller.” — THE FINANCIAL TIMES

"[F]ascinating. . . . the most stimulating book on the subject of child rearing since Dr. Spock."  — SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER

“Chua’s memoir, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, is a quick, easy read. It’s smart, funny, honest and a little heartbreaking…” — CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
