The Hudson Project will require the help of friends old and new, force Don and Rosie to decide how much to guide Hudson, and raise some significant questions about Don's own identity.
Meanwhile, there is the Genetics Lecture Outrage, Rosie's troubles at work, Don's estrangement from his best friend Gene...And opening the world's best cocktail bar.
Hilarious and thought-provoking, with a brilliant cast of characters, The Rosie Result is the triumphant final installment of the internationally bestselling Don Tillman trilogy.

Booklist Review
The final book of Simsion's beloved trilogy, which follows genetics professor Don Tillman's adventures in life and love, begins with a seismic shift. Don's wife, Rosie, the subject of The Rosie Project (2013), has been offered her dream job, which will take the family back to Australia from New York. But their 11-year-old son, Hudson, is not thrilled with the change. Meanwhile, Don, in his inimitable scientific fashion, takes on several problems for his loved ones while dealing with the fallout of what is called the Genetics Lecture Outrage, when he was unfairly charged with racism. As Don decides Hudson needs guidance in order to fit in at school, his son's ongoing issues there lead to an uncomfortable discussion about whether he should be evaluated for autism and what that evaluation might mean for Don himself. He tackles this project with the energy and ingenuity he displays in all his pursuits, which this time around include opening the world's greatest cocktail bar, for people who dislike the noise and interactions typically required during a night out. Simsion is, as ever, funny without unfairly poking fun, and deeply empathetic toward the flaws and weirdness that everyone carries inside. Charming, eloquent, and insightful, The Rosie Result is a triumphant conclusion to Don's story, one that celebrates this remarkable father, husband, and friend in all his complexity and brilliance.--Bridget Thoreson Copyright 2019 Booklist
