From breakout stand-up comedian Iliza Shlesinger comes a subversively funny collection of essays and observations on a confident woman's approach to friendship, singlehood, and relationships.
"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.)"

5+ Hours of Charm and Laughter
First off, I'm a dude and I still loved this book. It's a deep well of entertainment. Iliza has a distinctive voice metaphorically and literally. She's hilarious and charming throughout. I'm sure it makes women feel understood and it helped me understand them. Do yourself a favor and check it out. Holla!
Love love looooved this book!
If you are a fan of iliza’s standup this book is for you! Hell, even if you’re not it’s for you. I thought it was brilliant and a refreshing listen because in a culture where women are expected to “do it all” and “have it all” but then if we do achieve “it all” we feel guilty or are shamed by others. I love that she brings attention to this while still managing to make me laugh out loud. I binged listened to this book on my commute to and from work and made me feel less alone and crazy for my own girl logic. Thank you Iliza!!
