Brilliant, funny, self-deprecating
I really enjoyed this book. Amy Chua is a gifted comic writer, her humour is wry and her timing is perfect. She delivers one-liners and put-downs (many aimed at herself) which made me laugh out loud, especially being a mother myself and recognising many situations she describes with her daughters. I almost howled with laughter when she gets super-competitive about her dog as well. Chua is priceless, and her reading of her own memoir is flawless, her voice captivating and very ironic. How can this woman be also a professor of law? She is monstrously gifted - or just raised that way by her parents!

Interesting to hear how others do it...
Heard about this book after seeing a clip of the 'controversial' author on Oprah. Having now 'read' the book I found it interesting to hear how another mother decided to bring up her daughters and the results her methods received. This book has several stories which I found myself sharing or discussing with friends so it's definitely worth a read, even though you probably won't agree with all her views.
