I well remember Starman Jones by Robert Heinlein where the ships astrogators had to be mathematical geniuses, using logarithmic tables to calculate hyperspace jumps. They even used slide rules before card inputting to the ships computer.
Well I remember using log tables at school and later professionally! Slide rules...nope....
It is a good book though!
