The story about the dedicated female mathematicians is definitely a doozy that will make you enjoy their entire story non-stop.
Hidden Figures introduces us to the marvelous story about the brilliant female mathematicians that did the complex calculations behind the launch of rockets and astronauts into space. They were some of the most brilliant minds of their generations which didn’t get the recognition they deserved at that time, but now we can hear the whole story.

"Women, on the other hand, had to wield their intellects like a scythe, hacking away against the stubborn underbrush of low expectations." - Margot Lee Shetterly
Before Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, behind the curtains, there were a group of brilliant female mathematicians known as "human computers" due to their mental prowess. Margot Lee Shetterly will educate us on the racial and genre discrimination that these women had to endure to be part of historical accomplishments.
Hidden Figures give us a crude overview of the past and gives these female mathematicians the recognition that they deserved.

VERY WELL WRITTEN BOOK
I love how these guys summarize books. Great book too. This is one I have decided to purchase... that's the great thing about summaries is you can get the main points and decide if you want to invest the time to read or listen to the full book.
