From breakout stand-up comedian Iliza Shlesinger comes a subversively funny collection of essays and observations on the secret genius of irrational behavior. Have you ever been pissed because you're not pretty enough, and then gotten even more pissed that someone didn't find you as pretty as you think you are? Have you ever obsessed over the size of your thighs while eating dessert, all the while saying you'll work out extra tomorrow? Or spent endless hours wondering why you have to bear the brunt of other people's insecurities? I mean, after all, I'm pretty great. Why cope with insecurities I don't already have? That last one's just me? All right, then. But if the rest sounds familiar, you are experiencing Girl Logic: a characteristically female way of thinking that appears contradictory and circuitous but is actually a complicated and highly evolved way of looking at the world. You end up considering every repercussion of every choice (about dating, career, clothes, lunch) before making a move toward what you really want. And why do we attempt these mental hurdles? Well, that's what this book is all about. The fact is, whether you're obsessing over his last text or the most important meeting of your career, your Girl Logic serves a purpose: It helps push you, question what you want, and clarify what will make you a happier, better person. Girl Logic can be every confident woman's secret weapon, and this book shows you how to wield it.

Most of the things in which modern women believe regarding relationships and love is conditioned by movies, literature and social values in general. And, apart from any judgment that we could make about this fact, the truth is that the combination of such beliefs leads to stereotypes and behaviors that are now commonly known as female logic. But, women that follow such logic tend to be among the ones with less successful experiences in life. The incongruence between reality and this paradigm leads us to assume that what is logic is not necessarily realistic, but also that most of what composes such logic originates in false, even though highly popular, premises. It’s with the intention of analyzing such patterns, in a complete contradiction to the most famous theories about men and women, that this book intends to enlighten the reader into a better understanding about the nature of human beings and life in general. It’s, above anything, a book that shows positive insights about life, while promoting a more unifying and healthy relation between individuals of both genders. The chapters here presented, describe how personal beliefs influence the future of a person and where do they come from. And it’s based on the positive results that many women had in cleaning their mind from the lies that have contributed to nearly all of their misunderstandings about dating and men. Therefore, provides a new opportunity to understand personal past experiences and rebuild the future. It’s based on these pragmatic principles that the content was organized in order to provide an experience that goes to the core of many aspects of life, and contributes to a radical inner transformation.
