Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother
I really enjoyed this book, but again, I am drawn to stories that provide a different philosophy from mine. I also like tales that challenge my perspective. Chua writes a fascinating, often hilarious and very honest account of growing up under her regime. Chua’s portrayal of herself is often not very flattering. She describes herself as stubborn, mean spirited and demanding. I have to commend her for being able to self reflect and for being so candid. Chua approaches are anywhere from mainstream but I felt these methods are well intentioned as she wants what is best for both her children. Luckily her two girls were able to tolerate their mother’s strict processes and did not succumb to severe depression or worst suicide.
