A scientific sample reading from Mister B - Read by Sarah Jane Wightman
00:00 / 00:00

"A wonderful book, brimming with humor and spirituality. The characters are lovingly drawn and Byk provides her readers with a day-by-day recounting of how her life intersects with the indefatigable Mister B, whose memory seems almost photographic even at the age of 98! The book is enlivened by photographs from early-to-middle twentieth century America. A very worthwhile multi-generational read." -Jan Kalickion

 

The instructive and comedic Mister B is the Pinnacle Achievement Award recipient for best memoir, 2016. When a chauffeur-cook on the verge of financial ruin decides to help a 98-year-old rocket scientist by moving into his home with him, he decides to teach her a few life lessons. Together, each discovers why they still matter.  If you like Jimmy Stewart in No Highway in the Sky, or The Millionaire Next Door, Hidden Figures, Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont or Forrest Gump, you will love Mister B.

 

"Byk fully constructs Mr. B, from the Rhode Island coastal awe in his voice to his penchant for mustard on peeled egg ̶ which forces her to 'close [her ]eyes against a rising shudder.' In these small, perfectly executed moments, Byk brings her fascinating family to life for readers with warm and genuinely funny wit..." - KIRKUS REVIEW

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.
