đź“ťBattle Hymn of the Tiger Mother Book Synopsis : A lot of people wonder how Chinese parents raise such stereotypically successful kids. They wonder what Chinese parents do to produce so many math whizzes and music prodigies, what it's like inside the family, and whether they could do it too. Well, I can tell them, because I've done it... Amy Chua's daughters, Sophia and Louisa (Lulu) were polite, interesting and helpful, they were two years ahead of their classmates in maths and had exceptional musical abilities. But Sophia and Lulu were never allowed to attend a sleepover, be in a school play, choose their own extracurricular activities, get any grade less than an A, and not be the #1 student in every subject (except gym and drama). And they had to practice their instruments for hours every day, as well as in school breaks and on family holidays. The Chinese-parenting model certainly seemed to produce results. But what happens when you do not tolerate disobedience and are confronted by a screaming child who would sooner freeze outside in the cold than be forced to play the piano? In Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, Amy Chua relates her experiences raising her children the 'Chinese way', and how dutiful, patient Sophia flourished under the regime and how tenacious, hot-tempered Lulu rebelled. It is a story about a mother, two daughters, and two dogs. It's also about Mozart and Mendelssohn, the piano and the violin, and how they made it to Carnegie Hall. 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.

📝Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother Book Synopsis : From Publishers Weekly Chua (Day of Empire) imparts the secret behind the stereotypical Asian child's phenomenal success: the Chinese mother. Chua promotes what has traditionally worked very well in raising children: strict, Old World, uncompromising values--and the parents don't have to be Chinese. What they are, however, are different from what she sees as indulgent and permissive Western parents: stressing academic performance above all, never accepting a mediocre grade, insisting on drilling and practice, and instilling respect for authority. Chua and her Jewish husband (both are professors at Yale Law) raised two girls, and her account of their formative years achieving amazing success in school and music performance proves both a model and a cautionary tale. Sophia, the eldest, was dutiful and diligent, leapfrogging over her peers in academics and as a Suzuki piano student; Lulu was also gifted, but defiant, who excelled at the violin but eventually balked at her mother's pushing. Chua's efforts "not to raise a soft, entitled child" will strike American readers as a little scary--removing her children from school for extra practice, public shaming and insults, equating Western parenting with failure--but the results, she claims somewhat glibly in this frank, unapologetic report card, "were hard to quarrel with." (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved. From Chua’s stated intent is to present the differences between Western and Chinese parenting styles by sharing experiences with her own children (now teenagers). As the daughter of Chinese immigrants, she is poised to contrast the two disparate styles, even as she points out that being a “Chinese Mother” can cross ethnic lines: it is more a state of mind than a genetic trait. Yet this is a deeply personal story about her two daughters and how their lives are shaped by such demands as Chua’s relentless insistence on straight A’s and daily hours of mandatory music practice, even while vacationing with grandparents. Readers may be stunned by Chua’s explanations of her hard-line style, and her meant-to-be humorous depictions of screaming matches intended to force greatness from her girls. She insists that Western children are no happier than Chinese ones, and that her daughters are the envy of neighbors and friends, because of their poise and musical, athletic, and academic accomplishments. Ironically, this may be read as a cautionary tale that asks just what price should be paid for achievement. --Colleen Mondor

đź“ťAmy Chua Life of a Tiger Mother Book Synopsis : ABOUT THE BOOK Amy Chua was a wellrespected and highprofile Yale Law Professor who published two bestsellers yet, no one seemed to have taken much notice of her. Then everything changed. In January, 2011 Chua published her explosive memoir, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, which propelled her into the spotlight. Within weeks, Amy Chua was on Time.com 's top ten list of the most thoughtprovoking, angerinducing, and viral viewpoints of the year. Before 2011 ended, she was nominated one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in the world. In Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, Amy Chua details her own unique take on parenting and uses her own family model as proof that Chinese mothers raise successful children. Chua argues that although people hesitate to accept the notion of cultural stereotypes in parenting, the truth is that many studies support significant measurable differences in parenting between Chinese and Westerners. The book created a firestorm of controversy and sparked a robust and active dialogue about how cultural styles impact upbringing. Although Chua offered the disclaimer that being a "Chinese mother" does not mean you must be Chinese in ethnicity, but simply a parent who ignores the style of parenting that has become common in Western societies, a Wall Street Journal excerpt that appeared the day prior to the book's release fanned the flames of controversy and linked the topic firmly with Chinese culture. Entitled Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior, the essay elicited an astounding 8,800 comments in response from readers, some offering praise, but most vilifying Amy Chua as a parent. MEET THE AUTHOR Debbie J. is an experienced writer and a member of the Hyperink Team, which works hard to bring you high-quality, engaging, fun content. Happy reading! EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Amy L. Chua was born October 26, 1962, in Champaign, Illinois. Her Chinese immigrant parents came to the United States from the Philippines in 1961, eloping together to pursue advanced degrees at MIT. They were extremely strict, but loving. Amy Chua was the eldest of four girls. Amy and her sisters Michelle, Katrin, and Cynthia (Cindy) were raised in the Roman Catholic faith, and lived in West Lafayette, Indiana. Chua recalls that her father worked until three in the morning to make a good life for his family, and that he took great pleasure in introducing his family to American pastimes and activities such as tacos, Sloppy Joes, Dairy Queen, sledding, skiing, camping. The day her parents became naturalized citizens is a moment Amy Chua recalls with great pride. Her parents both grew up in the Philippines under Japanese occupation, and came to the States after celebrating liberation under General Douglas MacArthur. Although her father's family was very wealthy, her mother came from a poor but intellectual family. The Chua family's reenactment of the American dream is a theme woven through Chua's second book. Her father, Leon Ong Chua, was born June 28, 1936. After earning his first degree in the Philippines in 1959, he came to the United States on a scholarship, eventually completing his PhD at the University of Illinois in 1964. While the family lived in Indiana, he was an academic at Purdue University. When Amy was eight years old, the family moved to Berkeley, California, where Leon Chua became Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences professor at the University of California in Berkeley. He is known for formulating the Memristor theory in 1971, a method of memory resistance through use of a passive twoterminal electrical component. He is also considered the father of nonlinear circuit theory and cellular neural networks, and invented Chua's circuit. He has since been awarded eight honorary doctorates, and remains active in research and writing. CHAPTER OUTLINE ...and much more

In 2006, a record high of 9.5 million people applied for tertiary education entry in China. Of these, 8.8 million (93%) are scheduled to take the national entrance exam and 27,600 (0.28%) have been exempted from standardized exams ( ) due to exceptional or special talent. The rest (0.7 million) will take other standardized entrance exams, such as those designed for adult education students. The overall mark received by the student is generally a weighted sum of their subject marks. The maximum possible mark varies wildly from year to year and also varies from province to province.

đź“ťSteek je familie in de kleren Book Synopsis : In 2004 schreef het internettijdschrift De recensent: ÂżDe lezers mogen blij zijn dat David Sedaris geen eenzame wees is. Zijn vader, moeder, drie zussen, broer, schoonzus, enkele honden, een papegaai en zijn vriend leveren in al zijn verhalen levendige personages op. Zijn ouders draven op als huisjesmelkers op latere leeftijd, zijn broertje Paul gaat trouwen, zijn vriend Hugh ruziet graag met hem in gezelschap, zijn zus heeft een puinzooi gemaakt van haar huis en zijn andere zussen hangen voortdurend aan de telefoon. Zo opgesomd, klinkt het erg saai. Maar Sedaris heeft een gave om ook bij de normaalste situaties in te zoomen op de idiote kant van de zaak. En juist de idiote situaties bekijkt hij vanuit een droge invalshoek. Hilarisch over-the-top, zoals in Holiday on Ice, wordt het nergens; de verhalen zijn realistischer en zijn stijl is meer beschouwend geestig. Sedaris is een scherp observator en pikt er de juiste zaken uit. Zaken waar de betreffende personen zich voor zouden schamen, maar die wel zo herkenbaar en humoristisch zijn.Âż

📝Tiger Babies Strike Back Book Synopsis : An answer to Amy Chua’s Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, author Kim Wong Keltner’s Tiger Babies Strike Back takes the control-freak beast by the tail with a humorous and honest look at the issues facing women today—Chinese-American and otherwise. Keltner, the author of the novels Buddha Baby and I Want Candy, mines her own past in an attempt to dispel the myth that all Chinese women are Tiger Mothers. Keltner strikes back at Chua’s argument through topics, including “East Meets West in the Board Room and the Bedroom,” and “I Was Raised by a Tiger Mom and All I Got Was this Lousy T-Shirt: A Rebuttal to Chua.” Through personal anecdotes and tough-love advice, Keltner’s witty and forthright opinions evoke an Asian-American Sex and the City, while showing how our families shape our personal worlds.

📝Global Asian American Popular Cultures Book Synopsis : Asian Americans have long been the subject and object of popular culture in the U.S. The rapid circulation of cultural flashpoints—such as the American obsession with K-pop sensations, Bollywood dance moves, and sriracha hot sauce—have opened up new ways of understanding how the categories of “Asian” and “Asian American” are counterbalanced within global popular culture. Located at the crossroads of these global and national expressions, Global Asian American Popular Cultures highlights new approaches to modern culture, with essays that explore everything from music, film, and television to comics, fashion, food, and sports. As new digital technologies and cross-media convergence have expanded exchanges of transnational culture, Asian American popular culture emerges as a crucial site for understanding how communities share information and how the meanings of mainstream culture shift with technologies and newly mobile sensibilities. Asian American popular culture is also at the crux of global and national trends in media studies, collapsing boundaries and acting as a lens to view the ebbs and flows of transnational influences on global and American cultures. Offering new and critical analyses of popular cultures that account for emerging textual fields, global producers, technologies of distribution, and trans-medial circulation, this ground-breaking collectionexplores the mainstream and the margins of popular culture.
