Biography & Memoir • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

The movie HIDDEN FIGURES portrayed the brilliant Black female mathematicians who made NASA's Mercury program a success. Even listeners familiar with the movie will find this audiobook memoir a revelation. Mathematician Katherine Johnson tells her own inspiring life story, including her battles against racial barriers and her intellectual triumphs. Narrator Robin Miles's engaging style enlivens the work as her voice captures the wonder, triumph, and grit of the author. Miles varies her tone to fit the content and mood, especially as Johnson points to the people who helped her realize her dreams. Johnson emphasizes that her accomplishments at NASA were a team effort, not a solo enterprise. In all, this is one of the most enjoyable audio titles of the year. R.C.G.
