In The Nature Of a Woman: Navigating Her 4 Week Mood Cycle, author Gary P. Simmons enlightens heterosexual men on the ebb and flow of their partner's emotional moods and gives them the tools to navigate it. A handbook for those without vaginas to understand those with, and how to use that knowledge to build a better and more satisfying relationship. Simmons highlights the common emotional fluctuations that occur within the four week cycle and offers practical ways to respond to them.
Each section is written in layman's terms and while the short length of the book may surprise those expecting several tomes on the complexity of a woman, Simmons is practical and straight to the point. I will admit that I was hesitant to dive into The Nature Of a Woman by Gary P. Simmons at first. While I am somewhat aware of how my cycle affects my mood each week, and was interested in what the book had to offer, I was also worried that Simmons' handbook would show itself to be another 'pick-up artist' guide that rolls out the usual cliches. I am happy to say that this is not the case and that The Nature Of a Woman is a practical guide by a man for men interested in women. Despite being outside of the target audience as a woman, I still feel it provides valuable insight for self reflection. I definitely recommend this book for both men and women, partnered and single.

It focuses on the biological effects of a woman’s menstrual cycle on her moods.
There is a lot of sound advice to be found in this short, simple book. Furthermore, Mr. Simmons writes with a charm and a genuine love of the opposite sex that is quite alluring.
This is a man who really cares and it shows.
What I like most about his writing is the emphasis on seeing things from a woman’s perspective, and more important, finding a way to harmonize situations using love and respect as a fundamental foundation.
I really liked this book and I get the feeling that his wife is blessed to have him as her husband.
This is a sweet book, and although I sometimes feel that the author casts both men and women in a rather rigid stereotype, with a little flexibility of thought, his ideas can be applied to any relationship.
At the end of the book, Mr. Simmons offers membership to a private Facebook group as well as some fun bonus content.
If you’re a guy in a relationship with a woman, you can only gain by reading this book.
Skeptical? yes. Worth the read? absolutely.
It's not a topic I guess I know a lot about, yes have experienced the moods and I guess just accept it.
All thanks to Gary for adding science and working out a road map.
It's something to definitely try as anything that can help improve relationships is worth the effort for all, it can only be a win-win situation.
Disclosure: I was offered a free copy of this book by the author in return for an honest review.
Gary Simmons and his wife Christine decided to take on the subject of menstruation and explain in simple terms to make it understandable to men and thereby help make the four menstrual periods more tolerable for their partners. The language is warm and understanding with each section terminating with special advice to the husband.
I would like to suggest that these authors think of publishing spin-offs in the same respectful, clear and helpful language for children of all ages and their parents
My only reservation is the use of a cartoon-like figure on the cover. I don't think it reflects the seriousness of the contents.
