The Big Bang Theory star explores the science of being a girl

Mayim Bialik, actress, writer, neuroscientist, and founder of GrokNation.com, addresses what it means to grow from a girl to a woman biologically, psychologically, and sociologically in her new book, GIRLING UP: How to Be Strong, Smart and Spectacular.  Pulling from her own experiences as an actress, scientist, and writer, Mayim discusses navigating everything from first kisses and first periods to rocky friendships, family responsibilities, gender questions, body image issues, and figuring out one’s passion and place in the world.

“As a scientist who is a public person, it is incredibly gratifying to be able to combine my scientific background with my public face in order to bring Girling Up to young female readers,” says Mayim Bialik.  “I’ve been asked to write books which have attempted to harness my public persona, but none have allowed me to utilize my scientific and neuropsychological perspective on the amazing and complex process of growing up as a female in this culture.  I hope that my experience, my perspective, and my knowledge base will provide insight into all of the amazing things there are about being female and inspiration to become a unique strong, smart and spectacular female!”

Over 20-odd years in clinical practice and nearly as many as a mother, I have built up a whole arsenal of tricks to nurture good eating habits in children of all ages, from toddlers to teens – and I will be sharing these with you in this book.’ Lucinda Miller
