How to Talk to Girls

Adalah sebuah buku karangan Alec Greven… entar dulu jangan bilang biasa buku seperti itu banyak kok… namun ini yang ngarang umurnya 9th ya.. 9th seumuran anakku… gile..

Si Alec memndapat ide menulis buku ini dari memperhatikan teman seusianya yang gagap kalo berhadapan sama cewek… dari ide tersebut dituangkan di sebuah buku yang dijual saat acara pameran disekolah Soaring Hawk Elementary School book fair in Castle Rock, Colorado…. entah rejeki.. atau sebuah keberuntungan buku tersebut laris manis dan oleh publiser ternama…HarperCollins Publishers… jadi lah buku tersebut… membumi… weleh-weleh… umur 9th udah jadi.. dokter cinta….

The fourth-grader from Castle Rock, Colo., advises Lothario wannabes to stop showing off, go easy on the compliments to avoid looking desperate - and be wary of "pretty girls."

Men who are unlucky in love could benefit from a new relationships advice book — written by a nine-year-old who admits he has had only one crush in his life.

Alec Greven’s 46-page book How to Talk to Girls has hit stores across the US and the schoolboy is wowing crowds on a national promotional tour, according to Colorado broadcaster 9NEWS.

In the book, Alec compares pretty girls to “cars that need a lot of oil.”

“The best choice for most boys is a regular girl. Remember, some pretty girls are coldhearted when it comes to boys. Don’t let them get to you,” he wrote.

Alec’s words of wisdom started as a pamphlet written for a book fair at his school in Castle Rock, Colorado.

Described by the school’s principal as “entertaining” and “timeless”, Alec’s work was a bestseller among students and parents before making the 9News bulletin.

Ellen Degeneres then interviewed the young author on her talk show and introduced him to HarperCollins Publishers.

“I never expected people to buy it like a regular book in a bookstore,” Alec was quoted as saying in New York Post.

The reworked version, which also features his drawings, hints that being the smartest boy in the class will have girls “prowling at your feet”.

Other suggestions include “don’t be a show off”, “go easy on the compliments to avoid looking desperate” and “comb your hair” while the best way to get noticed without drawing too much attention is approaching a girl with a simple “hi”.

Alec admits he is “a little too young” to have a girlfriend and has held only one crush on a girl — back in pre-school. He attributes his worldly knowledge to observation in the playground while his mother Erin says her son’s wisdom comes from his love of reading.

“At dinner, I say, ‘Put your book down’,” she was quoted as saying in The Post.

Perhaps as a result, Alec is planning another book about how to talk to mums.

How To Talk To Girls is scheduled to hit Australian shelves in February.
