I just finished Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, the book on extreme "Chinese" parenting for mothers who want to raise concert pianists and violinists (keep up the good work ladies! America needs warm bodies to fill up all those overpriced music schools!) Other than humiliation, badgering and emotional abuse ("I'll burn your stuffed animals!")I am baffled why anyone, especially two Yale Law professors would waste so many resources to produce "musicians." If you are going to heap so much abuse on your children at least raise them to become theoretical physicists.
