Publisher's Summary

The art of love is never a science.: Meet Don Tillman, a brilliant yet socially inept professor of genetics, who's decided it's time he found a wife. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs The Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a 16-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers. Yet, Rosie Jarman possesses all these qualities. Although Don easily disqualifies her as a suitable candidate (even if she is "quite intelligent for a barmaid"), he is intrigued by Rosie's own quest to identify her biological father. When an unlikely relationship develops as they collaborate on The Father Project, Don is forced to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie and the realisation that, despite your best scientific efforts, you don't find love, it finds you.

    Story
    "Hilarious romance with a rational approach"

    After 5 minutes listening and a moment of so much laughter that I had to stop the book, I knew that the Rosie Project is a winner. As a person diagnosed as borderline Asperger's Syndrome (actual BMI 23), I quickly empathised with the difficulties that Assoc. Prof. Don Tilman has had through his life.

    As the story of a man whose brain works so differently to almost all others, and his long life journey to find his place in the world, including a romantic partner, the book works well. I liked the way the book gently stood up for people who do not conform to the neuro-typical, but did this within the context of a delightfully funny love story. Yes - aspys rule!

    "Entertain, fun and romantic"

    Is such an unusual love story. And yet so real. I think in some way we all are Don Tillman. Awesome to read.

    Excellent performance.
