Tiger mom really like controversies. Amy Chua is a law professor at Yale University. She wroteBattle Hymn of the Tiger Mother” in 2011. This book argues about the superiority of Chinese mothers and their children. She discusses some very strict parenting methods in this 2011 book to become a Tiger mom. She has already become quite a notorious author. 

Now another book by the Tiger Mom author has been published and it has sparked controversy again.  Amy Chua and her husband, co-author Jed Rubenfeld, claim in this new book titled ‘The Triple Package’ that only eight cultural groups are especially prone to become rich and successful in the United States.

"Why do some groups rise? Drawing on groundbreaking original research and startling statistics, “The Triple Package” uncovers the secret to their success. A superiority complex, insecurity, impulse control—these are the elements of the Triple Package, the rare and potent cultural constellation that drives disproportionate group success," state the authors in the book’s description.

The couple thinks that only Jewish, Indian, Chinese, Iranian, Lebanese-Americans, Nigerians, Cuban exiles and Mormons have the skills to reach heights of wealth and fame in the US.

And the success of these eight racial groups is based on three main traits. They all have them in common. These traits include: a superiority complex, insecurity and impulse control. And this “triple package” sets these cultural groups on the path of success.

"It may be taboo to say such a thing but some groups in America do better than others. Mormons have recently risen to astonishing business success. Cubans in Miami have climbed from poverty to prosperity in the span of a generation. Nigerians earn doctorates at stunningly high rates. Indian and Chinese Americans have much higher incomes than other Americans; Jews may have the highest of all," states the book description on Amazon.
