“One of the funniest—and most subversive—books of the year” (Esquire): Megan Amram, a writer for 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.
“Laugh-out-loud funny…an exuberantly scathing takedown of the sexism lurking within the fun, flirty pages of women’s magazines” (The Boston Globe), Science…for Her! showcases Megan Amram’s 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 incisive farce, part biting commentary on gender, this “hilarious feminist manifesto for the modern era” (Salon) 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!!!
This “giddily demented” (The Washington Post) satirical gem is “comedy-as-borderline-art” (Flavorwire). “Science…for Her! is a triumph that anybody with a sense of humor will appreciate” (People).
