Publisher's Summary

Mayim Bialik, star of The Big Bang Theory, puts her PhD to work as she talks to teens about the science of growing up and getting ahead. A must-have book for all teenage girls.

Growing up as a girl in today's world is no easy task. Juggling family, friends, romantic relationships, social interests, and school...sometimes it feels like you might need to be a superhero to get through it all! But really, all you need is little information.

Want to know why your stomach does a flip-flop when you run into your crush in the hallway? Or how the food you put in your body now will affect you in the future? What about the best ways to stop freaking out about your next math test?

Using scientific facts, personal anecdotes, and wisdom gained from the world around us, Mayim Bialik, star of The Big Bang Theory, shares what she has learned from her life and her many years studying neuroscience to tell you how you grow from a girl to a woman biologically, psychologically, and sociologically.

Want to be strong? Want to be smart? Want to be spectacular? You can! Start by listening to this book.

    "Thank you, for this book, Mayim!"

    I recently discovered Mayim's YouTube channel and got really into it. I love the topics she talks about and the way she addresses and acknowledges different points of view. When I ran out of interviews and videos of her to watch, I decided to get the audio book of "Girling Up" even though I am 23 and not within the suggested age range.
    I loved this book! I bought it this morning and just finished listening to it, so it is not too long.
    Mayim touches on some really big topics in this book, which I think, she does in a wonderfully tasteful and appropriate way. I especially loved the mix between talking about sex, hormones puberty and so on from a scientific perspective, as well as from a personal and emotional one.
    I felt like, even as a 23 year old biology student (or maybe BECAUSE of that), I still learned some things I didn't know or hadn't yet considered.
    There are also a lot of significant resources in her book, such as websites for domestic violence, anonymous alcoholics, eating disorder websites, ... and of course an easy guacamole recipe ;)

    Even if you are not a girl 10 - 18, you can enjoy and learn from reading this book and if you are a Mayim fan (like me now) you will definitely find it very interesting and entertaining.

    5/5 stars for my favorite Amy Farah Fowler actress :)

    "A clear, informative book"
    What does Mayim Bialik bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    .


    Any additional comments?

    I got this one to "preview" in case I wanted to give the book to my daughter in a few years. I found it to be well thought out and informative and Bialik does a great job of narrating it. However, I do think that I would give the print book to my daughter, only so that it can be used more easily as a reference.

    "Hard copy to my granddaughter..."

    Wonderful read for both young & not so young "girls"! Sent my granddaughter a hard copy in May, I just had to hear for myself. Mayim (Is an amazing human.) earned my respect decades ago, my admiration grows.
    Highly recommend for all ages.

    "Educational for All Ages"
    What made the experience of listening to Girling Up the most enjoyable?

    Mayim narrates in an easy breezy manner that is enjoyable and informative.


    What about Mayim Bialik’s performance did you like?

    She comes off as very down to earth which is welcoming


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I like how she explained everything including transgender. She spoke with knowledge and respect. I like how she stated the facts honestly and openly without providing an opinion as to her beliefs.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Mayim's character on The Big Bang Theory and the fact that she portrays exactly what she is. I also subscribe to her YouTube channel and have come to think of her as the friend in my head since I'm in a traditionally all male field (software engineer) and feels as though I can relate. She is inspiring and so is this book. I would recommend to all girls and women.

    "Loved the audio version"

    I previewed by listening to the audio version & loved that the recording was done by D. Bialik because it makes it seem like she's talking to you personally.
