Behind every successful, young athlete, there is a highly-motivated parent obsessed with the idea of their son or daughter becoming a big sports' star. Earl Austin, Jr.'s latest book, You Might Need a Jacket: Hilarious Stories of Wacky Sports Parents, is dedicated to those mothers, fathers and others who go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure their children's success in the athletic arena.
You Might Need a Jacket: Hilarious Stories of Wacky Sports Parents contains nearly two hundred stories and little anecdotes, chronicling the activities of "Straitjacket Parents," a term created to describe overzealous sports' parents. Some stories may be hard to believe, but they are all true.
They range from funny and cute to strange and truly bizarre. You Might Need a Jacket provides a small dose of what happens when parents' good intentions get the best of them.

Earl Austin's "You Might Need a Jacket" is a good conversational generator of universal appeal of parenting and a gauge on societal tolerance obtusity in behavior. It's an interesting and light-hearted read. It is a sad but true commentary on the imbalance of the "rose-colored" glasses through which affection paints life. It is a precautionary stage and notification that temperance may be a virtue worthy of a greater investment of our time and attention. Reviewed by: Gail
