About the Author

Amy Chua is the John M. Duff Professor of Law at Yale Law School. Her most recent book is Political Tribes: Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations. She is also the author of The Triple Package: How Three Unlikely Traits Explain the Rise and Fall of Cultural Groups in America (co-authored with Jed Rubenfeld). Chua's first book, World on Fire, was a New York Times bestseller and selected by The Economist as one of the best books of 2003; while her second book, Day of Empire, was a critically acclaimed Foreign Affairs bestseller. Chua lives with her husband, two daughters, and two Samoyeds in New Haven, Connecticut.


"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

"Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother is entertaining, bracingly honest and, yes, thought-provoking." -- THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

"[A] riveting read... Far from being strident, the book's tone is slightly rueful, frequently self-deprecating and entirely aware of its author's enormities... 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

"Courageous and thought-provoking." -- David Brooks, THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Breathtakingly personal...[Chua's] tale is as compelling as a good thriller." -- THE FINANCIAL TIMES

"[F]ascinating. . . . the most stimulating book on the subject of child rearing since Dr. Spock." -- SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER

"Chua's memoir, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, is a quick, easy read. It's smart, funny, honest and a little heartbreaking..." -- CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
