While you are reading it and are reading the intense and highly defensive criticisms of Chua, I would recommend that you keep in mind these words from former Yale student, Elizabeth Wurtzel. (Wurtzel took courses with both Chua and her husband and seems to have known her children.) From Wurtzel's Twitter: "Also, Amy Chua, aka insane Chinese mother, and husband Jed Rubenfeld, were among my favorite professors at law school Their kids seem fine."
