When it came to college acceptance for his first-born child, Hank Herman-an average Dad with average hopes and dreams for his son's college career-imagined he could resist the urge to meddle, that he could allow his son to make decisions for himself. Feeling slightly smug and superior to the good parents he'd seen go berserk before, he vowed not to become controlling and obsessed.Flash-forward to the 2' x 3' war board Herman has created to organize and rate the 36 colleges or universities he's selected as suitable for his son. Note the lengths to which he goes to market his candidate/son as a scholar and an athlete. See the sports scrapbook he has naively constructed for the coaches who now, alas, only accept video clips. Funny, self-deprecating, and all-too-familiar to today's parents, Accept My Kid, Please! details one good father's battle with his worst side. A book for parents looking ahead to or back at their child's college application process, it is an amusingly accurate cautionary tale.
