Hidden Figures

Those who watch the movie and then read the book will note the amount of dramatic license involved down to whom had a problem with a "colored" bathroom. One time cited, not all that back and forth running! And, she didn't vent to her boss in a crowded room -- she vented to a sympathetic colleague who then gave her a slot that made her career. Anyway, think the book could have done with some editing, including toning down some of the background materials / scientific tone and fleshing up the personal stories some. End result was a tad too clunky.
