Staff Reviews


The third and final installment of the Don Tilman saga, sees Don and his family move back to Australia where they come up against problems settling in their son. And with Don's job. And also with Rosie's. In fact, Don's self-given title of World's Best Problem-Solver may be under threat, and some big  life choices are going to have to be made. 

Simsion's wonderful tales about accepting our differences, and not being limited by other's perceptions of us are light heartened and touching. And very funny.

Description


Don and Rosie are about to face their most important project.
Their son, Hudson, is having trouble at school: his teachers say he isn't fitting in with the other kids, and they'd like Don and Rosie to think about getting an autism assessment. As his parents debate whether a diagnosis might help or hinder, Hudson has his own ideas. Meanwhile, Rosie is battling Judas at work, and Don is in hot water after the Genetics Lecture Outrage. The life-contentment graph, recently at its highest point, is curving downwards.
For Don Tillman, geneticist and World's Best Problem-Solver, learning to be a good parent as well as a good partner will require the help of friends old and new. It will mean letting Hudson make his way in the world, and grappling with awkward truths about his own identity.
And opening a cocktail bar.
