Mother Tongue is an article by Amy Tan, who is best known for her novel “The Joy Luck Club”. This article, much like “The Joy Luck Club” is about culture clash. “Don’t judge a book by its cover or someone’s intelligence by her English” (Tan 20) is the tagline quote at the top of the article and sums up the tone throughout. Tan expresses the struggles of proper English in a household that first language is not English. Judging someone on the way they look and speak is a problem everyone has, but here in America, it is too common. Everyone in America feels as if they have authority and can say what they want. This is the problem the author had to overcome in her life. Tan fears others with similar predicaments as hers that will be told English is not their strong suit and pe pushed to pursue other subjects. The article’s main claim of how one’s passion should not be stopped by stereotyping is an informative argument because the author uses a personal writing tone, shares relatable stories from her life, and showcases her success as an author despite being stereotyped herself.

This was a great book and I want to tell you about the author and why you should listen to him.

The fact that Sten did this in such a short amount of time at such a young age is practically unheard of. The Seven Mindsets of Success explains the mindsets that he adopted to reach what he calls “Rapid Top-Level Success...”
