    A TIME Magazine Top 10 Nonfiction Book of 2016

    'Clearly fuelled by pride and admiration, a tender account of genuine transcendence and camaraderie. The story warmly conveys the dignity and refinements of these women' New York Times Book Review

    'Much as Tom Wolfe did in 'The Right Stuff', Shetterly moves gracefully between the women's lives and the broader sweep of history ... Shetterly blends impressive research with an enormous amount of heart in telling these stories ... Genuinely inspiring book' Boston Globe

    'A fascinating and important document about the hitherto unknown impact of NASA's endeavours' BBC Sky at Night magazine

    'Shetterly's highly recommended work offers up a crucial history that had previously and unforgivably been lost. We'd do well to put this book into the hands of young women who have long since been told that there's no room for them at the scientific table' Library Journal

    'Inspiring and enlightening' Kirkus

    'Exploring the intimate relationships among blackness, womanhood, and 20th-century American technological development, Shetterly crafts a narrative that is crucial to understanding subsequent movements for civil rights' Publishers Weekly

    'This an is incredibly powerful and complex story, and Shetterly has it down cold. The breadth of her well-documented research is immense, and her narrative compels on every level. The timing of this revelatory book could not be better, and book clubs will adore it' Booklist

    'Meticulous ... the depth and detail that are the book's strength make it an effective, fact-based rudder with which would-be scientists and their allies can stabilise their flights of fancy' Seattle Times
