Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother

The New York Times Book Review '[E]ntertaining, bracingly honest and, yes, thought-provoking.' At once provocative and laugh-out-loud funny, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother ignited a global parenting debate with its story of one mother's journey in strict parenting. Amy Chua argues that Western parenting tries to respect and nurture children's individuality, while Chinese parents typically believe that arming children with skills, strong work habits, and inner confidence prepares them best for the future. Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother chronicles Chua's iron-willed decision to raise her daughters, Sophia and Lulu, the Chinese way ' and the remarkable, sometimes heartbreaking results her choice inspires. Achingly honest and profoundly challenging, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother is one of the most talked-about books of our times. '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 '[A] riveting read' 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 'Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother hit the parenting hot button, but also a lot more, including people's complicated feelings about ambition, intellectualism, high culture, the Ivy League, strong women and America's standing in a world where China is ascendant. Chua's conviction that hard work leads to inner confidence is a resonant one.' 'Chicago Tribune 'Readers will alternately gasp at and empathize with Chua's struggles and aspirations, all the while enjoying her writing, which, like her kid-rearing philosophy, is brisk, lively and no-holds-barred. This memoir raises intriguing, sometimes uncomfortable questions about love, pride, ambition, achievement and self-worth that will resonate among success-obsessed parents' Readers of all stripes will respond to [Battle Hymn of the] Tiger Mother.' 'The Washington Post.

  • "איימי צ'ואה, בת להורים סיניים, פרופסורית למשפטים באוניברסיטת ייל ואם לשתי ילדות פלא מוזיקליות, החלה לכתוב את הספר הימנון הקרב של אמא נמרה בעקבות מרד נעורים של אחת מבנותיה. עוד לפני שראה אור, פורסם פרק ראשון מתוכו ב"וול סטריט ג'ורנל" ומייד נרשמו מיליון כניסות לאתר ואלפי תגובות מנומקות של כלכלנים, אנשי חינוך, הורים ובלוגרים שטפו את הרשת ונגעו במגוון רחב של נושאים המטרידים כיום את המערב. לא היה אפיק תקשורת שלא כיסה בהרחבה את הספר שהפך מייד לרב מכר. וכך היא פותחת את סיפורה: "רבים תוהים כיצד הורים סינים מגדלים ילדים שנחשבים למוצלחים כל כך. כיצד הורים אלה מצמיחים מתוכם אשפי מתמטיקה וילדי פלא מוזיקליים כה רבים, מה קורה בתוך המשפחה, והאם גם הם יכולים לעשות זאת. ובכן, אני יכולה לספר להם, מפני שאני עשיתי את זה"."

  • "Amy Chua's daughters, Sophia and Louisa (Lulu) were polite, interesting and helpful; they had perfect school marks and exceptional abilities. The Chinese parenting model certainly seemed to produce results. But what happens when a screaming child, who would sooner freeze outside in the cold than be forced to play the piano, confronts you? BATTLE HYMN OF THE TIGER MOTHER is a story about a mother, two daughters, and two dogs. It was supposed to be a story of how Chinese parents are better at raising kids than Western ones. But instead, it's about a clash of cultures, a fleeting taste of glory, and how you can be humbled by a thirteen-year-old."
