Book: Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother

Battle Hymn of the Tiger MotherBattle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Entertaining and disarmingly honest account of a mother's efforts to catapault her daughters to success through discipline and determination. The book is lighter and funnier than publicity surrounding it would suggest. Chau is an elegant writer whose talent for capturing social mores in a few well-chosen words sometimes reminds me of Jane Austen. (No, really, it does...)
