Therefore he starts The Wife Project. He designs a detailed questionnaire to put out on the internet or give to possible candidates. This leads to all sorts of situations, but things get really complicated when he meets Rosie. She is rebellious, non-conformist, erratic, with issues of her own. She is everything Professor Tillman is not looking for, yet they become friends. What will happen when Don starts The Rosie Project? With a lot of laugh aloud humor & a touch of pathos, this is a fun & engaging read. Read it when you need a boost of happy. It is very satisfying to see how Don changes throughout the novel.
