Bill Gates Recommended Book: The Rosie Project

Project Rosie is about the aspie (person with Asperger's Syndrome) geneticist Don Tillman, who works as an associate professor at a prestigious university in Melbourne, Australia. He is 40 years old, earns more than people his age, and is in need of a suitable life partner. But because of his want of social skills, which almost always tend to embarrass him or the people he interacts with, he has very few friends and even fewer chances of dating someone he likes.

The Girl on the Train

The Girl on the Train is about an alcoholic divorcee who rides a train everyday from her rented bedroom to London to pretend that she's still employed and to stalk a couple living in a house beside the tracks for some pitiful reason of giving them an imaginary, but romantic background.
