Prioritybooks Publications author- Earl Austin, Jr. sports editor for St. Louis American, one of the leading African American newspaper in the United States and sports announcer will be appearing on Channel 2- KMOX, on Monday, October 12, 2006 at 8:00 a.m. in the St. Louis, MO market discussing his fast selling book, You Might Need a Jacket- Wacky Stories about Sports Parents. This book is hilarious and I am proud to be his publisher. Channel 2 is running commercials about his book being profile on their news show.

About the Book:

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.
