Megan Amram, one of "Forbes"' "30 Under 30 in Hollywood & Entertainment," "Rolling Stone"'s "25 Funniest People on Twitter," and a writer for NBC's hit show "Parks and Recreation," delivers a politically, scientifically, and anatomically incorrect "textbook" that will have women screaming with laughter, and men dying to know what the noise is about.
In the vein of faux expert books by John Hodgman and Amy Sedaris, "Science...for Her " is ostensibly a book of science written by a denizen of women's magazines. Comedy writer and Twitter sensation Megan Amram showcases her fiendish wit with a pitch-perfect attack on everything from those insanely perky tips for self-improvement to our bizarre shopaholic dating culture to the socially mandated pursuit of mind-blowing sex to the cringe-worthy secret codes of food and body issues.
Part hilarious farce, part biting gender commentary, Amram blends "Cosmo" and science to highlight absurdities with a machine-gun of laugh-inducing lines that leave nothing and no one unscathed. Subjects include: this Spring's ten most glamorous ways to die; tips for hosting your own big bang; what religion is right for your body type; and the most pressing issue facing women today: kale
Be prepared to laugh about anything in this outrageous satirical gem.
