Don Tillman is a handsome thirty-nine old geneticist with a savant memory and a giant lack of social skills. Helped by Gene and Julia this highly autistic kicks off the Wife Project with a lengthy questionnaire for each candidate, who surely will fail to meet all the requirements that Don put on the ideal woman. Not aware of dating, abandon habits and strict schemes like a weekly meal roster, this The Big Bang Theory in overdrive mode dismisses countless candidates until Gene throws in a wildcard, Rosie Jarman, the one Don is absolutely not looking for. Rosie is looking for her biological father, and so The Father Project is born. A perfect track for a geneticist, although initiation in dealing with a woman also leads to transgress ethical and moral boundaries, putting his career and future in danger.
The Rosie Project is a powerful, funny and readable story of how love finds you and even the most insensitive men can turn into human beings capable of receiving and giving love. The Father Project and The Rosie Project have their twists, halts and ultimate happy endings.
