Mister B: Living With a 98-Year-Old Rocket Scientist

This is the book that spins Americana like cotton candy. Who can tell how life transforms? Eccentric as an old goat hanging his hooves off of a cliff's edge, Mister B proves he could care less about being politically correct. That's not Mister B's style. What is his style and rhythm? Find out now.

As an immigrant drinks in the love of belonging, a mathematician drinks the probability curve related to everything else.
How did this dance between a strong woman and an elderly rocket scientist begin?

For curiosity seekers of aerospace and structural science, for story lovers of the Greatest Generation and World War II, for family members caring for aging parents... Mister B is a treasure worth unearthing. If you liked Imagine That, you'll love this book.

How did Mister B become the 2016 recipient for Best Memoir? This much is true, the ol’ man and his new companions embark to redesign his dry acre into a flowering conversation piece where mushroom collecting and the sources of hydrogen and iron are discussed.

The odyssey of Lynn Byk and Joseph Byk became a best-selling historic memoir in 2016 when it was received the Pinnacle Achievement Award.

Joseph Byk was born in 1916, the Rhode Island son of Polish immigrants. From the disadvantage of poverty, Mister B becomes a man who defies gravity. How does he do it? Mister B's jaunty calculating rhythm really does offer timely subject matter for adult children caring for parents and grandparents. With middle-age couched between the pillows of quirk and kindness, MISTER B's confessions roll tide.

This instructive and humorous aerospace memoir, Mister B, offers historic photographs to back up each story. It can be found in the grumpy ol’ men’s section at your local bookstore.

A book that spins Americana like cotton candy. The instructive and comedic Mister B is the Pinnacle Achievement Award recipient for Best Memoir, 2016. When a chauffeur-cook on the verge of financial ruin decides to help a 98-year-old rocket scientist a surprising odyssey begins. After she settles in with the physicist, the old man decides to teach his new helper a few life lessons. Together, they discover why they each still matter. A terrific confessional. An unusual love story

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. Ending his senior year, 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.
