John West returns to the literary limelight with a new book dissecting “The Nature of Men and Women, the X and Y Factor, or I Didn’t Say It Was Your Fault, I Said I Was Going To Blame You” (published by AuthorHouse). Evocative, entertaining and edifying, this guide elaborates on why attraction is not purely a choice, but also involves a subconscious, genetic directive affecting attraction.

This book is a humorous, semi-scientific guide to understanding the nature of men and women. It is a helpful source for navigating the ins and outs of interactions with the opposite sex. The book starts with the beginning of sex, goes through nature and nurture to a description of men and women, and finally, to marriage and beyond. Readers will find checklists, quizzes and a road map through the perils and pleasures of finding a mate. Included are interesting facts, figures, and advice from poets, writers, and romance experts. Whether an individual is 20 or 50, this book is a wonderful resource for the affairs of the heart.

“This book is different from other relationship books because it describes the genetic influences that affect feelings and emotions. Most books simply discuss how the cultural and behavioral feelings influence relationships. This book describes the nature and the nurture, the subconscious and the conscious working of the brain and heart, involved with relationships,” West points out.

A compendium of his education and experiences, “The Nature of Men and Women, the X and Y Factor, or I Didn’t Say It Was Your Fault, I Said I Was Going To Blame You” gives answers and clues as to why one person can hit the “on button” and another will hit the “off button” in today’s world of attraction and relationships.
