Just Wondering: Is Jon Gosselin really writing a book on parenting? Really?

A report today came out that Jon Gosselin is supposedly writing a book focused on child rearing. Sometimes the jokes just write themselves, don't they?

The father of eight is apparently still in the early stages of his writing (i.e. still sobering up from his weekend in Vegas) and has yet to find a hook but feels his insight into the parenting game must be a key element of the book.

A friend of Gosselin said, "Jon is still deciding what exactly the book will be about, but knows he wants to focus on his parenting skills … There is no deal yet or timeline, but the [interest] in Jon from publishers is huge right now, so he's going to strike while the iron is hot."

Jon certainly knows how to strike while the iron is hot, first with a reality show then with bikini-clad famewhores and now with a book deal! You know what he hasn't seemed to be busy with while the iron has been hot? Raising his eight children.

Considering the only books Gosselin has presumably read in the past decade are "The Game" and a published hardback catalogue of Ed Hardy's complete collection, we don't know where he will do his research.
