This is supposed to be funny An expert book written as a satire.
I tend to think I have an excellent sense of humor I enjoy sarcastic, even caustic, but this was a DNF for me I found very few genuinely funny parts, and after a couple chapters gave up digging for them.
Before this book I didn t think you could get less intelligent by reading a bookunless maybe it was written by a disgraced polititian Amram should run for orifice.
As an engineer and an avid lover of satire, comedy, and women s magazines I was excited by this book after hearing Megan Amram on CBC radio Saying I was disappointed by the book is an understatement The book does not resemble a science textbook, a woman s magazine or anything sensical really I think I found 1 thing funny in the entire book if you see the book in person check out the Period Ick table it is funny , but other than that is it one nonsensical attempt at a sex joke after another The book includes 7 blank pages in an attempt at a joke which really isn t funny and is rather wasteful Needless to say I RETURNED this book that is how disappointed I was in it.
Bought this by accident and was too late to cancel it It is a load of It is in no way funny and I wouldn t just suggest that people don t waste their time with this drivel, I would actually go out of my way to recommend that people avoid this at all costs This woman is meant to be a comedian That is the only thing funny about this.

Some people obviously don t get Ms Anram s sense of humor and that s fine Taste in comedy is subjective, see the career of Adam Sandler NB I m told by someone who knows him from his stand up days that he s a great guy and a wonderful friend but I have never laughed ONCE at his man child humor And Sandler is a multi millionaire, so clearly there s room for disagreement here.
But as the great Bette Midler once told me, eff em, if they can t take a joke This is not misogyny as some claim, it is satire Clearly, it flies WAY OVER the heads of the negative reviewers Please don t let their very skewed comments put you off this hilarious book Satire is not an endorsement of a point of view, as some here are saying Don t listen to them They are simply wrong Buy this book Now, I am not the target audience for this book as friends assure me I have a penis But I have seen women in the wild and, occasionally, in captivity and I think any beautiful, intelligent woman will pee her pants laughing while reading this That s not my opinion, it s a medical fact.
