"Girl Logic" is Iliza's term for the way women obsess over details and situations that men don't necessarily even notice. She describes it as a characteristically female way of thinking that appears to be contradictory and circuitous but is actually a complicated and highly evolved way of looking at the world. When confronted with critical decisions about dating, sex, work, even getting dressed in the morning, Iliza argues that women will by nature consider every repercussion of every option before making a move toward what they really want. And that kind of holistic thinking can actually give women an advantage in what is still a male world.
In Iliza's own words: "Understanding Girl Logic is a way of embracing both our aspirations and our contradictions. GL is the desire to be strong and vulnerable. It's wanting to be curvy, but rail thin at the same time. It's striving to kick ass in a man's world while still being loved by the women around you.
"This book is also for me, because apparently expounding on a stage for two hours a night wasn't enough. (Trust me, if I could start a cult I would, but I hate the idea of deliberately dying in a group.)"

Resonates so well on many levels...most definitely not just a book for 20 and 30 something's figuring it out ...I'm a 48 year old (divorced, no kids, now with a long term partner) woman and Iliza's message is validating and just spot on. She's super funny, but more importantly, she's smart as shit. Be a decent human to others, ask for what you want, and be honest and kind to yourself.

Great to hear her voice/inflection
Would you consider the audio edition of Girl Logic to be better than the print version?
I loved the audio book more than the print version - as she adds a few lines, and shares her "voices" - which makes you laugh out loud!
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
The best part of this book helps you to think about how you are living your own life. She encourages you to ditch regret and second guessing yourself, which is really what most women need reminding of!
Which character – as performed by Mayim Bialik and Iliza Shlesinger – was your favorite?
Both were fantastic
If you could give Girl Logic a new subtitle, what would it be?
Stand up for yourself!
