I loved this book! It was so well written and thought out. The author described just the facts without the embellishments of conjectured conversations. It was written in such a way as to convey potentially dry historical facts into meaningful, inspirational words. Words that offer hope for humanity, progression, and left me (and I'm sure most readers) wondering what contribution I can make to society. I felt motivated and empowered to make some positive change in my life so I can be a part of making a positive change in society. I was a little frustrated and disappointed that these women were not mentioned in our history books. They, especially Kathryn Johnson, were monumental in getting our first astronauts in space. Not only were they women working in a predominantly male industry, they were black. Would it have made a difference today for people of color, especially women, to have these women mentioned alongside John Glen or even W.E.B Dubois? I believe it would've. How could it not empower them or anyone? It's crazy I never learned about these women. I would've been enthralled. I enjoyed listening to the narrator. I'm going to look up some other books she may have read for. I couldn't listen to her if I was tired because her voice was very soothing.
