Alec Greven's treatise on the battle of the sexes is being published in 17 countries and turned into a movie. He's nine years old:

It's such a ----ing bunch of bull!

Seriously, what's next, 9 year old girls giving advice on...

I have a serious book on bicycle and commuter safety, that could possibly save lives, and can't find a publisher, yet they are jumping on this nonsense!

I bet his father is "ghost" writing!

Bull -


Seriously.

I agree. I just find it very hard to believe that this kid on his own without any help at all from an adult, decided to do this and write that. I just do not see it. His father or parents had to get involved in it.

I'm worried about what all this attention will do to the kid. I hope he escapes before he starts a cult.

The attention is apparently what the parents want, otherwise we would not even be responding here as we would not have known about it.

I am willing to believe that his parents helped him with legal contracts and probably contributed to his success by raising him properly etc., but is it so hard to believe that a 9-year old can write a 46 page pamphlet on his own? (We're not talking about 'War and Peace' here.)

From the kids interviews etc., he does seem mature and intelligent enough that I can believe he wrote it on his own. (Note, he only wrote the text ... someone else did the illustrations.)

You can actually read the first few pages of the book here:

Better yet, buy a miniature Shrunky Head and wave it around.

Justin, we need to talk. PM me. (about book)
