An answer to Amy Chuas Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, author Kim Wong Keltners Tiger Babies Strike Back takes the control-freak beast by the tail with a humorous and honest look at the issues facing women todayChinese-American and otherwise.

Keltner, the author of the novels Buddha Baby and I Want Candy, mines her own past in an attempt to dispel the myth that all Chinese women are Tiger Mothers. Keltner strikes back at Chuas argument through topics, including East Meets West in the Board Room and the Bedroom, and I Was Raised by a Tiger Mom and All I Got Was this Lousy T-Shirt: A Rebuttal to Chua.

Through personal anecdotes and tough-love advice, Keltners witty and forthright opinions evoke an Asian-American Sex and the City, while showing how our families shape our personal worlds.
