"For better or worse, for richer or poorer, your girlfriends are yours for life." --Karen Neuburger
A joyful celebration of female friendship in all its wild, poignant, and inspirational glory.
Karen has spent the past ten years collecting stories of love, laughter, and inspiration between girlfriends from the thousands of women she comes in contact with through her work as the founder of an immensely popular lifestyle company. Often funny, sometimes sad, but always enlightening and uplifting, these testimonials show that in a world where women are constantly being pulled in several directions, they can always rely on their girlfriends to be there for them.
Celebrating these rare and unique bonds between women, The Secret Language of Girlfriends shows how restorative friendship can be and how setting aside time to be around other women can have a transforming effect. Whether it's getting over a breakup, struggling with family frustrations, dealing with illness and loss, or simply just shopping 'til you drop and sharing a bottle of wine over dinner, being around your girlfriends can make all the difference in the world.
The Secret Language of Girlfriends is Karen Neuburger's personal prescription for more happiness and fulfillment in life — a healthy dose of girlfriendship! As the perfect gift from one girlfriend to another, it's sure to find a place on every woman's bookshelf.

About the Author

Karen Neuburger's lifelong quest for comfort led her to shed the corporate dress code of her fashion career, shred her pantyhose, toss her pumps, and create her famous comfy, cozy pajamas that are so soft, they feel "like a big old hug." Karen has a national following of customers who will sleep only in her namesake creations. She is also known for throwing thousands of pajama parties across the country: in stores, in offices, even in airplanes. Karen has literally been "in bed" with thousands of women and has gained valuable insight into their lives and the girlfriend relationships that sustain them. She lives in the San Francisco Bay area.

Nadine Schiff worked as a reporter for CBS Evening News before moving into the entertainment business, where she was vice president of Michael Douglas's Stonebridge Entertainment. She is the coauthor of If I Don't Do It Now . . . Career Makeovers for the Working Woman, and lives in Los Angeles.

Deborah Fochler, April 26, 2008 (view all comments by Deborah Fochler)
For women, some of our closest relationships are with our girlfriends. We bond in a way that men can never understand. They become our "family" and know us in a way even family doesnt. This book celebrates those relationships and offers some insight into them. It is
touching, heartwarming, funny, sad and outright honest. A great book to give to the "girlfriends" in your life. I loved it.
