Der Spiegel bestseller

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 bitter clash of cultures, a fleeting taste of glory, and how you can be humbled by a thirteen-year old. Witty, entertaining and provocative, this is a unique and important book that will transform your perspective of parenting forever.
