About Living With a 98-Year-Old Rocket Scientist: Mister B by Lynn Byk
Mister B could care less about being politically correct. By the time you finish reading about him, you will know how to live a carefree existence.
Best Memoir, 2016. A surprising odyssey begins when a chauffeur-cook on the verge of financial ruin decides to help a 98-year-old rocket scientist. The old man decides to teach her a few of his own life lessons, namely how to live forever.
Born in 1916, to a Polish-speaking mother, physicist Joseph Byk began his early schooling in rope-tied-baggy-pants-poverty. He was every teachers’ dreaded student, however, he aspired to design vehicles that defy gravity. 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.
For curiosity seekers of aerospace and structural science, how did it all start? Here is the story of a forgotten stress engineer whose philosophy, calculations, and outspoken opinions saved many lives. Being politically correct is not Mister B’s style, though Greatest Generation story lovers, World War II hounds, and family members caring for aging parents, think of Mister B as a national treasure.
