If you like Sheldon Cooper of The Big Bang Theory, you'll love Don Tillman. He is a genetics professor at the University and quite pleased with his life except that he is missing a wife. As a highly intelligent man with Asperger's (a condition on the high functioning end of the autism spectrum) and a scientist, he reviews his previous failures at romance and determines that he needs a questionnaire for wife candidates. In typical Don Tillman fashion, his survey for The Wife Project runs to 16 double-spaced pages .He tries speed dating and on-line match-up sites. The results are disappointing and he begins to wonder if he isn't meant to find a wife. Enter Rosie. She is totally unsuitable - in dress, in education, in attitude. Thinking his friend Gene has sent over a possibility for the Wife Project, Don jumps right in and asks her out. She accepts although she seems a little surprised. Thus begins The Rosie Project which soon transcends The Wife Project. As a geneticist, no one is better qualified than Don Tillman to help Rosie find out who her real father is. Rosie is as engaging and socially adept as Don is inept. Together they hatch schemes to collect the DNA samples of men who may be her father. Adventure and hilarity ensue. You'll be cheering for Don, crying for Rosie and the best part is, it works out in the end. Five stars for The Rosie Project.
