Having lived in Asia for several years I am familiar with "Chinese" parenting and saw frequent examples of it among my kids school mates. While most pressure comes to bear around academics, Ms. Chua's focus was on her children's music accomplishments. This book is important because while many Western parents may not agree with the methods described, their children will have to compete against children whose parents do believe and follow "Chinese parenting".
