As John Crace said in the Guardian in his Digested Read, 'Never has mediocrity seemed so appealing.'

I read the book in a day appalled and fascinated in equal measure at this true story of an American mother of Chinese ethnicity bringing up her children the Chinese way: no sleepovers, no drama clubs, and no down-time in front of the TV.

There was plenty of the predictable stuff in here about the Trump insanity, fake news and all that, but there was also some enlightening discourse on the antics of the far left.
