This is a laugh-out-loud funny book which at once critiques how society views women in science and how we view ourselves (through the lens of ladies' magazines).
One word of caution: There's a reason that the word "kale" appears on the book cover with four exclamation points. One chapter consists solely of a very long list of (I hope) farcical kale recipes. Many recipes. Many, many recipes. After a while, it gets kind of surreal. Honestly, somewhere about 75 percent of the way through, I started to freak out a little bit. I made it to the end of the chapter through sheer willpower, but this may be one situation where a printed book would work better than audio—you could just flip through the pages and think, "Wow, that's a lot of kale. Ha ha." To the author's credit, she read all the recipes with enthusiasm, and (apparently) without going insane.
I hope Megan Amram writes more books, minus the kale.

like totally bummerly, this book was super crappily rated... it's not as bad as the 2.5 rating. it's not 5 though. people may have been expecting a science book with a girl twist. this book is really not educational at all. it's 100% satire. it's told from a super slutty pop culture dumb bimbo who really knows nothing about science.... just like cosmopolitan and many other girl mags. just know going into it, it's not science, IT’S SATIRE! it's comedy. and it's actually pretty funny!
