I got this softcover at a local Savers thrift shop. It's the basis for the 2016 film, an inspirational - if sometimes infuriating - look at the real-life trials of the women whose computational skills made the space program successful.

[There's a TV Tropes page on the film, with some entertaining tidbits.]

I left this book, bagged against the elements, in a planter along the hiking trail at Railroad St.; hope the finder enjoys it!

Found on a bench outside a 7-11 store. Will start to read this week.

A lot more history than the movie.
