How I Discovered It
Bill gates is known for sharing his favourite books on his blog, GatesNotes. On one particular blog, he mentions that the “The Rosie Project” is a book that he’s given to over 50 of his friends and that it was one of the most profound novels he read in a long time. That was enough for me to be convinced to read this book.

Who Would Like It?
I'm Farshad, and I'm a curious PhD candidate in biomedical engineering at the University of Toronto. At the moment, I spend most of my time engineering DNA nanotechnologies 🧬, and researching how I can improve personalized medicine approaches. I also spend a lot of time thinking about what I’m supposed to be doing with my life, and how I can be the best version of myself. This website hosts a collection of my over caffeinated thoughts regarding my life and the world, as well as my notes on the various books I’ve read.
