"...Byk fully constructs Mr. B, from the Rhode Island coastal awe in his voice to his penchant for mustard on peeled egg. In these small, perfectly executed moments, Byk brings her fascinating family to life for readers with warm and genuinely funny wit..." - KIRKUS
Joseph B IS the loveable, bumbling scientist portrayed in Nevil Shute's romantic character, Mr. Honey, (Jimmy Stewart) in the movie, No Highway in the Sky. A highly unusual story of love. Born in 1916, to a Polish-speaking mother, Joseph Byk begins his early schooling in rope-tied-baggy-pants-poverty. He is every teachers' dreaded student. By the time he graduates, the longing to design vehicles that defy gravity is the motivating factor in his life. Mister B eventually helps design the space shuttle Gemini, the first moon landing gear and the beginnings of Google Earth.
What the story of Hidden Figures is to three brilliant NASA women, the story of Mister B is to another national hero, a forgotten stress engineer whose calculations and outspoken opinions saved many lives. Being politically correct is not Mister B's style, although all Greatest Generation story lovers, Cold War, and World War II hounds, and family members caring for aging parents, think Mister B is a national treasure.
