SummaryAdd a Summary
Very enjoyable and hilarious reading!
Professor Don Tillman initiates the Wife Project to find himself a compatible partner, and he ends up with Rosie, who he had ruled out as patently unsuitable. Author Graeme Simsion, an Australian, teaches us many things: love can make you do irrational things, and you don't find love-it finds you. He also illustrated the Bible lesson, "let he who is without sin cast the first stone." Loved this quirky book.
