The Rosie Project was an international publishing phenomenon, with more than a million copies sold in over forty countries around the world. Now Graeme Simsion returns with the highly anticipated sequel, The Rosie Effect. Don Tillman and Rosie Jarman are now married and living in New York. Don has been teaching while Rosie completes her second year at Columbia Medical School. Just as Don is about to announce that Gene, his philandering best friend from Australia, is coming to stay, Rosie drops a bombshell: she's pregnant. In true Tillman style, Don instantly becomes an expert on all things obstetric. But in between immersing himself in a new research study on parenting and implementing the Standardised Meal System (pregnancy version), Don's old weaknesses resurface. And while he strives to get the technicalities right, he gets the emotions all wrong, and risks losing Rosie when she needs him most. The Rosie Effect is the charming and hilarious romantic-comedy of the year. Graeme Simsion is a Melbourne-based novelist and screenwriter. The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect have combined global sales approaching five million copies. Graeme is also the author of the international bestsellers The Best of Adam Sharp and – co-written with his wife, Anne Buist – Two Steps Forward. His screenplay for The Rosie Project is in development with Sony Pictures, The Best of Adam Sharp is in development with Toni Collette’s Vocab Films, and the rights to Two Steps Forward have been optioned by Fox Searchlight and Ellen DeGeneres. Graeme’s latest book is the third and final Rosie novel, The Rosie Result. ‘There’s no sophomore [second-novel] slump here...It’s a funny novel that also made me think about relationships: what makes them work and how we have to keep investing time and energy to make them better. A sweet, entertaining, and thought-provoking book.’ Bill Gates ‘The Rosie Effect is a successful sequel; it will be enjoyed by readers who found The Rosie Project entertaining, and to new readers searching for a satisfying comedy, with a memorable main character and plenty of heart.’ Weekend Australian ‘Don himself, pedantically single-focused as ever, is increasingly charismatic and the left-field resolution of his problems is as satisfyingly credible as it is delightfully unexpected.’ Adelaide Advertiser ‘Unlike most sequels, this second book is very close to being as good as the first...The writing is witty and the characters charming, making it easy to just sit back and enjoy the ride. Here’s hoping for book number three.’ Dominion Post Weekend/Waikato Times/Weekend Press ‘This charming new chapter in the Tillman chronicles leaves you hoping it won’t be the last.’ People ‘[A] winning sequel...The Rosie Effect is a celebration of the best attributes to be found in a friend, a husband, or a father, regardless of the way they are expressed.' STARRED Review, Booklist ‘A wholly absorbing, vivid read that leaves you pining to be reunited with its characters every time you put it down—if you’re able to.’ Independent ‘[A] romantic comedy that’s just as smart, funny and heartwarming as the original.’ Washington Post ‘That these books are as funny and charming and often touching as they are is a tribute to the skill with which they’re written.’ NPR

Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. He is a man who can count all his friends on the fingers of one hand, whose lifelong difficulty with social rituals has convinced him that he is simply not wired for romance. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a "wonderful" husband, his first reaction is shock. Yet he must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and he embarks upon The Wife Project. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which he approaches all things, Don sets out to find the perfect partner. He sets up a project designed to find him the perfect wife, starting with a questionnaire that has to be adjusted a little as he goes along. She will be punctual and logical, most definitely not a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver. Then he meets Rosie Jarman, who is everything he's not looking for in a wife. Rosie is all these things. She is also beguiling, fiery, intelligent, and on a quest of her own. She is looking for her biological father, a search that a certain DNA expert might be able to help her with. Don's Wife Project takes a back burner to the Father Project and an unlikely relationship blooms, forcing the scientifically minded geneticist to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie, and the realization that love is not always what looks good on paper.

‘A delightful tale of renewal and shedding unnecessary burdens...This is sure to be loved by fans of The Rosie Project and it’s enough to put the Camino at the top of your travel wishlist.’ Herald Sun Zoe, a sometime artist, is from California. Martin, an engineer, is from Yorkshire. Both have ended up in picturesque Cluny, in central France. Both are struggling to come to terms with their recent past—for Zoe, the death of her husband; for Martin, a messy divorce. Looking to make a new start, each sets out alone to walk two thousand kilometres from Cluny to Santiago, in northwestern Spain, in the footsteps of pilgrims who have walked the Camino—the Way—for centuries. The Camino changes you, it’s said. It’s a chance to find a new version of yourself. But can these two very different people find each other? In this smart, funny and romantic journey, Martin’s and Zoe’s stories are told in alternating chapters by husband-and-wife team Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist. Two Steps Forward is a novel about renewal—physical, psychological and spiritual. It’s about the challenge of walking a long distance and of working out where you are going. And it’s about what you decide to keep, what you choose to leave behind and what you rediscover. Fate took the form of a silver scallop shell in the window of an antique store in the medieval French town of Cluny. It was laying on its back as if waiting for Boticelli's Venus, luring her with a cluster of coloured stones at one end of a white enamel edge. I was compulsively drawn to it. Maybe the universe was sending me a message; more likely it was my head being in another time zone. I had been travelling for twenty-four hours since I walked out of my home in Los Angeles for the last time. Two Steps Forward by Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist has been optioned by Fox Searchlight with Ellen DeGeneres and Jeff Kleeman producing it through A Very Good Production. Graeme Simsion is the internationally bestselling author of The Rosie Project, The Rosie Effect and The Best of Adam Sharp. Anne Buist is chair of Women's Mental Health at the University of Melbourne and author of the Natalie King psychological thrillers. They live together in Melbourne. ‘ The novel explores themes of forgiveness and self-discovery with gentle humour...A feel-good, mature romance that explores what we need to let go of to move forward.’ Books+Publishing ‘I enjoyed every moment of this informative, funny and sweet novel.’ Readings ‘A novel of mature love and self-discovery set against the scenic backdrop of the pilgrims’ walk’ Age ‘There’s so much to love about this novel, which is smart and funny and full of the awkwardness and adrenaline of adventure and new romance.’ Whimn ‘Fans of The Rosie Project might recognise shades of Don Tillman...Compelling reading...[A] cast of entertaining and eccentric characters...The book’s momentum never flags...[An] entertaining and refreshingly unpredictable romance.’ Sydney Morning Herald ‘Sometimes, you just have to feel—to go with what the Way or a book like this one makes you feel. This one made me feel uplifted. I hope it does the same for you too.’ Pop.edit.lit ‘Graeme Simsion and Anne Buist keep it in the family with their cowritten novel Two Steps Forward (Text, October), a romantic comedy told in alternating chapters from the point of view of two wounded souls trekking the Spanish pilgrimage route, the Camino de Santiago.’ Books+Publishing ‘Simsion and Buist are Camino veterans who add detail and authority to their novel.’ Adelaide Advertiser ‘This is the sort of book that you can easily imagine being filmed, with strong set pieces, gorgeous scenery, and lots of heart and humour.’ Booktopian ‘Simsion and Australian psychiatrist Buist have written an insightful study of loss, grief, and the possibility of romance after.’ Library Journal ‘A beautifully crafted tale of love, self-acceptance and blisters’ Sunday Express ‘charming, uplifting’ The People ‘charming and absorbing’ Daily Mail ‘charming’ Good Housekeeping ‘an authentic and diverting read that will make you want to put on your walking boots and book a one-way ticket to southern France.’ Press Association

In The Flowering Thorn, world authorities explore fifteen different cultures on a series of personal journeys to the heart of one of Europe's richest, most enduring cultural creations. The Flowering Thorn investigates interpretation, structure and motif, context, version, and transmission; regions, reprints, and repertoires; and the mediating collector, touching upon gender issues, collecting and editing as cultural translation, literary ballads in oral tradition class issues, and dynamic relationships between oral and print sources. Folklore, history, literature, and technology combine with structuralism and functionalism, repertoire studies, and themes of cultural change to reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the field today.

"ROSIE is a programming system designed to support the development of expert systems and other heuristic programming applications. ROSIE offers great promise because it combines many modern capabilities within a single system, including English as a programming language; knowledge representation capabilities; a built-in relational database system; flexible string matching and communication capabilities; highly modular programming structures; a file package and interactive programming environment. This Note describes in detail the features of the ROSIE environment, and the syntax and semantics of the ROSIE language. The Reference Manual should be useful to readers who intend to program in ROSIE or who are interested in the implementational details of the ROSIE system. 143 pp. Ref."--Rand abstracts.

An explanation facility is critical in the construction and utilization of an expert system, since it provides the mechanisms by which the expert system can explain its performance. These mechanisms typically show the user (1) why and how the expert system reached a given conclusion, (2) why the system asked for particular information, (3) how rules and data got added to the knowledge base, (4) what is the purpose of a rule or ruleset, and (5) why the use of a rule is justified."--Rand abstracts.
