Hidden Figures – Book Review

 

TITLE: Hidden Figures

AUTHOR: Margot Lee Shetterly

PUBLISHED: 2016

FORMAT: Paperback

Hidden Figures bills itself on the cover as “The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race.”  That is a perfect description of the book, which has already inspired a (somewhat fictionalized) movie about the  events in the book.   (Full disclosure, I have seen the movie, but I’m one of those people that likes to read the books that movies are based on as well).

One of the first things I found was this book, and since the price was amazing ($4!) I bought and devoured it in only a couple hours!

The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo

Memoirs from female comedians seem to be coming fast and furious these days. Books by Mindy KalingTina FeyAnna Kendrick, etc. are all examples of this extremely popular trend in books right now. Personally, I hate trends, I’m the person with a giant scowl on my face as people tell me all about this ‘new exciting thing’ that the entire world has seemed to jump on board with. But of course I make exceptions, what kind of a book reviewer would I be if I didn’t?
