Inhaltsangabe: 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.

Science...for Her! has finally combined two of your favorite things: your seventh grade science textbook and your Cosmo. This is obviously a book for the ladies, but one of America’s manliest men got his hands on it, and he has a few quandaries. Nick Offerman, author of Paddle Your Own Canoe, asks Megan Amram, author Science...for Her! all of the burning questions that are on your man’s mind.
Will feminism be more of a threat after women learn of the powers of Science?
If you know anything about brain science, you will know that this is impossible! The more a woman learns about one thing, the more she forgets about all other things. A woman's brain is actually only the approximate size of a teacup (standard British issue.) If she reads my book, she will forget everything she knows about so-called "feminism." I promise this is true, or my name isn't "Catalog Marzipan"! (I know so much about science that I can't remember my own name!)
Is the feminine for “scientist”, “scientista”?
There's no real translatable equivalent for "female scientist." The Inuit people called it "aqilokoq", which, loosely translated, means "snow."
Who has better scientistas, Israel, Palestine, or Texas?
I will go with Texas, but mostly because I don't know what those other words are! Are they flavors of Axe Bodyspray (hubby hubby, that's how I want my hubby to smell! That, and some Ben & Jerry's, yum!!!)? This isn't "Words...for Her!" Though that would be a great sequel! I'm going to put the "dick" in "dicktionary"! [sic] ;)
Is there a sure fire method for locating the perineum, or “bridge of sighs”? I am handy with a tape measure.
I just go with regular ol' female intuition on this one (which is how female surgeons find the pancreas, etc.) Think: where was the last place I left the perineum? Retrace your steps. Is it on your forehead? The perineum is always in the last place you look!
Not really much about canoes in this book, but wouldn’t you say they are an important part of water science? Why the dis?
Canoes are very important, but only applicable for men! A woman can't drive a normal car, due to her inborn lack of spatial reasoning and physics (discussed at length in the book) - how do you think she'd fare at canoes, the cars of the sea? She would get distracted by all the beautiful water lilies (Anthropologie-chic!) and crash into another canoe in order to create a "meet cute" with a hot, single doctor. There would be massive causalities. I am very proud of you, Nick, for using a canoe responsibly, but please, don't let any women NEAR them!
Have you given any thought to tackling other traditionally difficult areas of study for Ladies, like emotional composure?
Science is something women can learn, if they really put their (pint-sized!) mind to it. Emotional composure, on the other (petite!) hand, is unattainable. I, for (instance!) instance, am sobbing all over my keyboard right now as we speak because I remember that Hello Kitty doesn't have a mouth and got sad and horny at the same time. Itas gahggetting hadrsd tao tpye isn fancct. Okay, I've composed myself. I'm so sorry for that. I'm going to go eat chocolate.
