The book tells how a high-energy Chinese-American woman who graduated from Harvard College and Harvard Law School, and who now teaches at Yale Law School, threw herself into raising two daughters with one iron-clad pledge: to never become one of those pushover “Western” parents.

They wonder what these 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.
