Twelve Fail-Safe Ways to Charm Witches: Lessons from Ron's Wooing of Hermione

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

On Ron's seventeenth birthday he received the book Twelve Fail-Safe Ways to Charm Witches. Ron was obviously impressed with the book; he gave a copy of it to Harry on Harry's 17th birthday five months later. This presentation speculates – humorously – about what Ron might have learned from the book by comparing his behavior before and after he read it. Ron seems to have learned such classic fail-safe charms as listening, complimenting, flirting, faithfulness, and being a shoulder to cry on. A book that can get those lessons through to a 17 year-old boy is "pure gold" indeed. If it worked for Ron, maybe it would work for some of us other clueless males as well.
