En un momento de creciente preocupación por el futuro de nuestros hijos, Amy Chua siembra la polémica con este sorprendente testimonio que cuestiona la permisividad y la escasa exigencia del modelo educativo occidental y defiende en su lugar la estricta educación del método chino, que a lo largo de generaciones ha producido talentos excepcionales en diversos campos como la música o las ciencias. Madre tigre, hijos leones es el relato íntimo, ingenioso y provocador de esta madre tigre que decide educar a sus hijas en la excelencia y la disciplina siguiendo el inflexible método chino, frente a las miradas de incomprensión de su entorno occidental. No dormir fuera de casa, sacar siempre sobresalientes en la escuela o ensayar al menos dos horas diarias de piano o violín serán algunas de las normas que Sophia y Lulu —las hijas de la autora— deberán seguir para alcanzar el éxito y la perfección a toda costa; pero también se convertirán en el detonante de encarnizados enfrentamientos con su madre que pondrán al descubierto un profundo choque entre culturas. Una controvertida confesión que revela, en el fondo, el amor de una madre por sus hijas y su determinación por sacar lo mejor de ellas a cualquier precio, a la vez que su esfuerzo por mantener vivo un legado cultural cuyos resultados nos invitan a replantearnos nuestro actual modelo pedagógico

## Mathematics: All That Matters

Mathematics often gets a bad press. Describing someone as 'calculating' or 'rational' is hardly as flattering as being labelled 'artistic' or 'creative' and mathematicians in movies or novels are often portrayed as social misfits who rarely get the guy or girl. No wonder some folks say 'oh I don't care for mathematics, I was never any good at it' with a wistful sense of pride. Yet professional mathematicians talk of the subject differently. They look for elegant solutions to problems, revel in playing around with mathematical ideas and talk of the creative nature of mathematics. As the Russian mathematician Sophia Kovalevskaya said "It is impossible to be a mathematician without being a poet in soul." So why is there such a gap between the views of everyday folks and professional mathematicians? Part of the problem lies in how most of us were taught mathematics in school. The mathematics served up there is presented as a series of de-contextualised, abstract ideas, wrested from the human struggles and interactions that gave birth to the ideas. Through looking at some of the history of mathematics, psychological studies into how we come to know mathematics and key ideas in mathematics itself, the intent of this book is, if not to make the reader fall in love with mathematics, then at least to come to understand its nature a little better, and perhaps care a little more for it. In short, this book explores the human side of maths.

Does that statistic make sense? How much will this round of drinks come to? And what are the chances of winning the lottery? Twice? Learn how to do complex maths with nothing but the back of an envelope, a pencil and some good old-fashioned brain power. Doing mathematics without a calculator seems like an unnecessary feat in the twenty-first century. These clever little electronic devices have helped to take away the drudgery of arithmetic, and given all of us the power to perform in a few seconds what might previously have taken hours to work out. But much of the time, we don't need the exact answer with its endless decimal points - we just need to know whether something is in the right ballpark. Rob Eastaway's clever mathematical techniques do exactly that, as he takes an entertaining look at how to figure without a calculator. From spotting misleading statistics in the news and bad deals, to estimating how long you'll be standing in that slowly crawling queue, this book is packed with amusing anecdotes and handy back-of-the-envelope calculations for every situation. Most importantly, this book is a timely and welcome reminder that sometimes our own brain is the best tool we have to deal with numbers.
