I found this book to be very enlightening on the subject of Math education and the differences in understanding of elementary math education between Asian, specifically China, and the US. She gives detailed examples of various elementary/basic math concepts that students must learn and discusses how the different teachers approached problems and understood the mathematical concepts. Frankly, I have had a college level class on math for elementary teachers which I found helpful in filling in the gaps of my own understanding of math and ways to teach it. However, I found the many detailed explanations given by the chinese teachers to be much better at connecting all the concepts and previous knowledge. I highly recommend this book to any US teachers whether in public/private schools or in home schools.
