"The naming of Nathalia Holt's daughter led her to research early history of the Jet Propulsion Lab.  This fascinating history covers the women's life and work.  These are the women whose computations made the engineer's work credible, using paper, pencils, and graphs.  It fills a gap in the history of science, engineering, and space that gives women their proper place, in the vanguard."--Reviewed by Percy
