Speaker to Address ‘Science of Compatibility’ at WSU

OGDEN, Utah – Two years after teaching Weber State University students “The Art of Kissing,” Michael Christian returns to Ogden to discuss “Mate Smart: The Science of Compatibility” Feb. 22 at noon in the WSU Shepherd Union Ballroom.

The former Boston College English professor has spent 30 years studying what makes relationships work and what doesn’t. His presentation will include a slide show explaining why Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s relationship was doomed before it ever began. Each attendee will also receive a personalized compatibility test and career advice based on Christian’s research.

Christian, a 2001 nominee for “Speaker of the Year” by the National Association for Campus Activities, published “The Art of Kissing” in 1991 under his pen name William Cane. The book has sold more than 250,000 copies and been translated into 19 languages.

The event, part of WSU’s Convocation Lecture Series, is free to the public.
