E women screaming with laughter and men dying to know what the noise is aboutIn the vein of faux expert books by John Hodgman and Amy Sedaris Sciencefor Her is ostensibly a book of science written by a denizen of women’s magazines Comedy writer and Twitter sensation Megan A I got an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewI was hoping this one would be funny with pokes to some girly magazines and their silly articles yet also real scientific data in it—like a textbook with serious information only in the shape of articles lists of tips etcIt wasn't the case It only looked the part until I started reading itScience here was reduced to a bare minimum Nothing any high schooler wouldn't know nothing really interesting nothing to learn here So the Earth is orbiting around the sun big news Reproduction I learnt about it in the anatomy book I got when I was 7 Either you really don't know much about science and this is going to be useless or you already know a bit and it won't be of any use to you If there's a middle ground in that muddle it's a very thin and invisible oneThe rest didn't save the book it was just too heavy handed to my taste Like using plaster coating instead of foundation Too full of fat jokes rape jokes wife beating jokes mean jokes tasteless jokes in general that went on for far too long again and again and again After the Nth iteration of I can't get over my boyfriend and here's a dick and fat ugly bitch and so on I was glad I had had a few drinks in me to keep on reading Note I'm only a social drinker and a moderate one at that When I need booze to get me through a book it's bad bad newsThere's humour satire and political incorrectness and then there's just too heavy and thick to bear Hey wait Thickium the one element you won't find on the periodic table because it's atomic number is so high it actually fell off said table See I can do science tooIt takes real skill to properly satirise any subject I don't think that skill was anywhere to be found here In the end I just wasted my time And probably would have wasted it much less if I had read an actual issue of Marie Claire Elle or whatever instead Unless the US versions of those magazines are really so much worse than the French ones in which case I won't ever touch them with a ten foot pole

Science For HerMram 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 issue This should have been called Science by a Crazy PersonI'm so disappointed I love Parks Rec Megan is so funny on Twitter But this missed the mark whatever that mark was by milesI was under the impression that this was a pseudo textbook like America A Citizen's Guide but it was like I Am America with this awful through line of Megan's inane life updatesIt's sad because there was so much that was genuinely funny here I would have even been happy if this had been done in the style of Cosmo mag But I just don't get why the first person stuff was in this book Unless the premise is that women are so stupid that we can't focus long enough to write a textbook
