How To Get a Girl

9 year old Alec Greven wrote a book on how to get, keep and get over, a girl.
It’s amazing how so much changes and then so much doesn’t.


I believe you reap what you sow. It's not a Karma thing, it's that I believe you make your own reality whether good or bad. Thus, my favorite saying is, "Say what you mean and mean what you say."

  1. I still say he makes me uncomfortable…at that age there shouldn't be this much put on, as he says, a crush. I think it's just another bit of this "growing up too fast" kind of thing. I didn't have it to good at that age and it makes me cringe for other reasons than those above.Oh yeah, blah-blah-blah!

  2. Frank just showed me this article:Fox to adapt 9-year-old's self-help book (Reuters)Source: Reuters Tue Dec 09, 2008, 3:18 am ESTLOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Fox is ready to take advice from a 9-year-old.The studio has acquired the film rights to "How to Talk to Girls," a cute 46-page self-help tome written by Alec Greven, a Colorado fourth-grader.Greven wrote "Girls" as a handwritten, $3 pamphlet sold at his school book fair; he wrote it after he noticed his peers were having some trouble talking to the ladies, though the book is geared for all ages. Among this advice: Comb your hair and don't wear sweats; control your hyperness and cut down on sugar if necessary; a crush is like a love disease that can drive you mad; it is easy to spot pretty girls because they have big earrings, fancy dresses and all the jewelry but are like cars that need a lot of oil.Soon enough Harper Collins picked up the book, which came out in November and quickly became a hit. But initially, Fox, which is like Harper Collins is owned by News Corp ., and its book scouts passed on the title. But when the book hit the town last week, garnering heavy interest from multiple parties, Fox stepped back in and took the book off the table. The deal was in the low-to-mid six figures .No writers or producers are attached yet.Reuters/Hollywood Reporter

  3. And in 20 years he'll end up gay! He'll be confused and especially unsure of himself.Remember, as he said, "There's a girl for every boy". Hm. Wonder what that explanation will be.After about 2 or 3 minutes in, I just couldn't handle listening to it anymore… It is a bit creepy though.

Well, Sharon, if you wanna know what I think....
