Yale law professor and the world’s most hated “Chinese mom” Amy Chua is now doing the TV rounds, after an excerpt of her book, Battle Hymn of a Tiger Mother, appeared on the Wall Street Journal and elicited a ton of furious responses from around the world, including this blog — as well as her own video clip by our favourite Taiwanese animators. In an interview on the Today Show, Chua told Meredith Vieira that her book is “absolutely not about how to parent or saying the Chinese way is better,” but “also about my mistakes and making fun of myself and how I eventually had to pull back”. Say whatever you will about Amy Chua — she may not be the top parenting expert out there, but she’s definitely a marketing whiz. Her book has climbed rapidly through the charts and now sits at #6 on Amazon. While she laughs her way to the bank, we hear her mom is livid she isn’t already #1.
