9780007316991: How to Talk to Girls

How To Talk To Girls is the US smash hit bestseller from nine year old dating guru, Alec Greven.

Want to know how to score the girl of your dreams? Nine-year-old Alec Greven has a few tips for you. Boys (and men!) of all ages will go back again and again to this guide book on love and life from this junior dating guru.

Alec's essential insights on how to talk to girls, as well as his advice for what to do (and not do) once you win her over ("Don't cheer in front of her or she might ditch you") are based on his own observations during playtime, class and on his own personal experience, How to Talk to Girls will remind all of us to go back to the basics and to stop over-analysing matters of the heart.

Alec first wrote How to Talk to Girls as part of a classroom writing assignment. His teacher shared it with other staff and the principal of the school suggested Alec "publish" it (which, for a 3rd grader, means writing it neatly and making paper or laminated copies!) and sell it at the school book fair. Alec's book was the #1 seller at the book fair, and he donated all proceeds from the fair to the school for school projects. When a local news station picked up the story his book took off. After appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, CNN, and radio stations throughout the US, Alec worked with a local binding company to produce hard and soft cover books. As the demand and proceeds increased, Alec decided to donate to additional charitable causes, including Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the American Heart Association, and the Children's Miracle Network.

How to Talk to Girls will be followed by How to Talk to Moms.
