Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua. I'd heard a lot about it, but just read it while on vacation. Interesting perspective on parenting and the pro's and con's of cultural differences in how we approach raising children.
After losing her legs below the knee at 19 to bacterial meningitis and then needing a kidney transplant, Amy Purdy went on to win snowboarding medals, meet Madonna, and place second on Dancing with the Stars.
