Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua
Amy Chua’s parenting style borders on abusive (if her depictions are accurate she was certainly emotionally abusive toward her daughters). I disagree with so much of what she said and did. However, she tells about raising her girls with such an excellent combination of wit, sarcastic humor, and self-deprecation that I couldn’t help but enjoy Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother. I appreciated how she came to realize that in spite of her over the top internal need to push her girls, when it didn’t work for one of them, she backed off no matter how much it pained her. This isn’t a must-read book by any means, but it’s interesting nonetheless.
