Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother
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.

Drawing on examples from around the world, the author describes the potential dangers of globalization and the exportation of free-market democracy, arguing that they do not spread wealth evenly through a society but instead produce a class of wealthy plutocrats, as well as increased ethnic conflict, violence, ethnonationalism, and other potentially disastrous results.

The Triple Package
"That certain groups do much better in America than others—as measured by income, occupational status, test scores, and so on—is difficult to talk about. In large part this is because the topic feels racially charged. The irony is that the facts actually debunk racial stereotypes. There are black and Hispanic subgroups in the United States far outperforming many white and Asian subgroups. Moreover, there’s a demonstrable arc to group success—in immigrant groups, it typically dissipates by the third generation—puncturing the notion of innate group differences and undermining the whole concept of 'model minorities.'" Mormons have recently risen to astonishing business success. Cubans in Miami climbed from poverty to prosperity in a generation. Nigerians earn doctorates at stunningly high rates. Indian and Chinese Americans have much higher incomes than other Americans; Jews may have the highest of all. Why do some groups rise? Drawing on groundbreaking original research and startling statistics, The Triple Package uncovers the secret to their success. A superiority complex, insecurity, impulse control—these are the elements of the Triple Package, the rare and potent cultural constellation that drives disproportionate group success. The Triple Package is open to anyone. America itself was once a Triple Package culture. It’s been losing that edge for a long time now. Even as headlines proclaim the death of upward mobility in America, the truth is that the old-fashioned American Dream is very much alive—but some groups have a cultural edge, which enables them to take advantage of opportunity far more than others. • Americans are taught that everyone is equal, that no group is superior to another. But remarkably, all of America’s most successful groups believe (even if they don’t say so aloud) that they’re exceptional, chosen, superior in some way. • Americans are taught that self-esteem—feeling good about yourself—is the key to a successful life. But in all of America’s most successful groups, people tend to feel insecure, inadequate, that they have to prove themselves. • America today spreads a message of immediate gratification, living for the moment. But all of America’s most successful groups cultivate heightened discipline and impulse control. But the Triple Package has a dark underside too. Each of its elements carries distinctive pathologies; when taken to an extreme, they can have truly toxic effects. Should people strive for the Triple Package? Should America? Ultimately, the authors conclude that the Triple Package is a ladder that should be climbed and then kicked away, drawing on its power but breaking free from its constraints. Provocative and profound, The Triple Package will transform the way we think about success and achievement.

The Triple Package
Why do Jews win so many Nobel Prizes and Pulitzer Prizes? Why are Mormons running the business and finance sectors? Why do the children of even impoverished and poorly educated Chinese immigrants excel so remarkably at school? It may be taboo to say it, but some cultural groups starkly outperform others. The bestselling husband and wife team Amy Chua, author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, and Jed Rubenfeld, author of The Interpretation of Murder, reveal the three essential components of success - its hidden spurs, inner dynamics and its potentially damaging costs - showing how, ultimately, when properly understood and harnessed, the Triple Package can put anyone on their chosen path to success.

Day of Empire
In this sweeping history, bestselling author Amy Chua explains how globally dominant empires—or hyperpowers—rise and why they fall. In a series of brilliant chapter-length studies, she examines the most powerful cultures in history—from the ancient empires of Persia and China to the recent global empires of England and the United States—and reveals the reasons behind their success, as well as the roots of their ultimate demise. Chua's analysis uncovers a fascinating historical pattern: while policies of tolerance and assimilation toward conquered peoples are essential for an empire to succeed, the multicultural society that results introduces new tensions and instabilities, threatening to pull the empire apart from within. What this means for the United States' uncertain future is the subject of Chua's provocative and surprising conclusion.

Political Tribes
Political Tribes: Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations by Amy Chua | Conversation Starters “Political Tribes” is a book written by bestseller author Amy Chua. In it, she argues that Americans tend to always regard the world in terms of countries engaged in great ideological combats, for example Democracy vs. Authoritarianism or Capitalism vs. Communism. Chua defines this as a blindness that is responsible for undermining American foreign policy. She claims America must find a national identity that goes beyond political tribes. She says that slogans of unity are false and just another form of discord and calls for a different type of harmony, a more difficult one, that recognizes and fights the reality of tribe inequities and differences. “Political Tribes” enjoyed a great success; reaching Amazon’s best sellers rank shortly after it was published. The Financial Times called it an important book that presents in a clear way how America’s liberals contributed to Trump’s election by failing to see its own sense of tribalism. A Brief Look Inside: EVERY GOOD BOOK CONTAINS A WORLD FAR DEEPER than the surface of its pages. The characters and their world come alive, and the characters and its world still live on. Conversation Starters is peppered with questions designed to bring us beneath the surface of the page and invite us into the world that lives on. These questions can be used to.. Create Hours of Conversation: • Foster a deeper understanding of the book • Promote an atmosphere of discussion for groups • Assist in the study of the book, either individually or corporately • Explore unseen realms of the book as never seen before.

Mare tigre
Aquesta és una història sobre una mare, dues filles i dos gossos. També sobre Mozart i Mendelssohn, el piano i el violí, i com vam triomfar al Carnegie Hall. Se suposava que havia de ser una història sobre com els pares xinesos són millors educant els infants que els pares occidentals. Però en lloc daixò, tracta dun xoc aferrissat entre cultures, duna experiència passatgera de la glòria i de com vaig esdevenir humil als trenta anys. Els pares xinesos requereixen la perfecció als seus fills perquè saben que la poden assolir, Amy Chua a La Vanguardia Aquesta manera de fer dels pares pot servir per fer del fill un triomfador? Si ens fixem en els èxits acadèmics i musicals, la resposta és sí. Però hi ha un anvers de tot això: sovint el que impulsa aquests nens cap a lèxit és una enorme inseguretat, Verna Yu, al diari Ara, sobre Mare tigre.
