For some reason the audiobook is just $2.84 on Downpour.com while it's $15-24 every where else. The Overdrive download from my library was glitchy so I went looking for a better copy since this memoir was too good to give up on. Katherine Johnson's life truly was a remarkable journey, from a West Virginia farm to NASA's Langley Research Center where she performed the mathematical calculations for the Apollo space program. Her story included the history of the space race and civil rights movement but what stood out was her love of family and her determination to follow her dreams in education and in her career. ( )

What a lovely book, that looked into the personal life of Katherine G. Johnson, who rose to fame through the "Hidden Figures" book and movie. She was an extremely intelligent, but humble person and this look at the world through her eyes was an absolute joy to listen to. ( )

This is the memoir of Katherine Goble Johnson, who was one of the women showcased in the book and movie Hidden Figures. Johnson was a brilliant mathematician who graduated from high school at 16 and made her way to NASA, where she calculated launch and orbit trajectories for the U.S. space program in the 1960s and helped put Apollo 11 on the Moon. Famously, she was also the person that John Glenn wanted to have cross-check the figures put out by the then-new-fangled computer for his orbital mission.

This book was written in collaboration with two of Johnson’s daughters, Joylette and Katherine (known as Kathy). Johnson’s voice is unmistakeable throughout as she talks about all aspects of her life: family, work, school, church, and the civil rights movement. She lived to be 101 and saw a lot of change in her life—one fact that struck me was that she was 10 years old when sliced bread was invented! To pack all of those changes, developments, and advances into 256 pages is an impressive feat.

I would recommend this if you’ve read or seen Hidden Figures, are interested in the history of the space program, and/or want to read about awesome women. ( )

> Joylette got more good news—she had landed the job at NASA. She joined me at Langley just four days after her secret wedding. My oldest daughter was now a mathematician, like me. She worked at NASA, like me

> I worked closely at Langley with engineer Al Hamer on trajectory calculations for the trip to the moon and contingency plans in case of disaster, including how to navigate the spacecraft back home using the stars as a guide if there were an electrical failure. Al and I examined these and other technical topics in four papers that we would publish together between 1963 and 1969.

> The two of us even wrote a research paper, doing some preliminary work for an Earth-to-Mars trajectory. The paper, titled “Simplified Interplanetary Guidance Procedures Using Onboard Optical Measurements,” was published in May 1972. ( )

Like so many others, I had seen 'Hidden Figures' and enjoyed the film and the book. So when I saw this memoir, I thought it might be a good read to pick up and fill in any holes the 'Hidden' book and film didn't cover, read the story from her perspective, learn more about Johnson's life, etc. I had no idea of the role she had played prior to hearing about the movie and watching it, so it seemed like this would be a good compliment.

It was interesting to learn more about her background (which is understandably not really covered in the film), her childhood and her other work at NASA. 'Hidden' obviously only covered a small slice and from a very specific angle so it was interesting to read up on her other work and experiences, her career overall, etc.

I'm not sure there's much more to say, other than it's really appalling that it took something like 'Hidden' to bring Johnson's story to the forefront. There are likely many others that we don't know about because they are not talked about, celebrated, promoted, etc. So I'm glad we were able to learn more about Johnson and her contributions before her passing and would recommend this to anyone interested in space, representation, NASA, etc.

I got this as a library borrow and this was best for me. I'm not sure it would be necessarily something as a purchase unless you have a specific interest in her work, NASA, her story, etc. But I do recommend giving it a read at some point and maybe encouraging a student in your life to research Johnson for a school project when appropriate.
