Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother explained by its author Amy Chua

"I wrote this book in a moment of crisis, when my younger daughter seemed to turn against everything I stood for and it felt like I was losing her and everything was falling apart.  After one terrible fight, I sat down at my computer, and even though I usually have writer’s block, this time the words just poured out.  I showed every page to my daughters and my husband.  It was like family therapy.  In retrospect, I think writing the book – going back eighteen years when my elder daughter was born and I was a very different person – was an attempt to put the pieces back together and work things out for myself . . . and the story is unfinished!"

I'd be happy to lend you the book, if you are interested.
