"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…."

Chinese values and stereotypical Western values - let's have the best of both of them

This is the most important book that I have listened to in my entire life so far. It teaches us, that the US has forgotten the values of the Founding Fathers. Today, these values are still present in Chinese culture. This doesn't mean that today's achievements are not valuable. Everybody has been talking about the decline of America and the rise of China, more, the rise of authoritarianism in the world, which might turn into dictatorship. However, if America combines these "Chinese values" with the freedom and "Western values", America might remain number one for a little longer. And let's hope China will adopt "Western values" besides "Chinese values" too and we will globally have a formidable mixture with peace and prosperity and a better chance of keeping us alive on this planet for a long long time, hopefully.

Witty, truthful, and self critic

I enjoyed listening to this book very much. It brought up a lot of subjects which has never been revealed before. Being born and brought up in Asia in a bi-national family with a Chinese mother, I personally agree with Amy's description of the general "Chinese" mother.... as I have experienced her myself.
