With her new Let's Get Physics Y'all video, Megan Amram puts the idea that women aren't interested in science on blast. You see, she understands how difficult it is for us ladies to wrap our tiny brains and dainty hands around Science — and, therefore, how difficult it must be to explain all that smart stuff to us! So, her surreally witty new book is here to help everyone out.
This new "textbook" from the hilarious Twitter phenom and Parks and Recreation writer is a satire of the way media often speaks to women — especially about science. Amram's intentional scientific and political incorrectness reveals just how ridiculous and unnecessary it is to "dumb down" research — or relate every new finding to shoes and/or losing weight under the guise of making it interesting to a female audience.
So, revel in her parodies of sex tips, diet advice, and even physics coverage aimed at women. These include illuminating pieces on topics such as New Year's resolutions for the year 3014, this winter's sexiest molecules, and of course, a full 10 pages of kale!
