Quite obviously the author has painstakingly researched those thirteen days of October 1962. Very well written, the story jumps off the pages as John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev wrestle with the demons of a potential nuclear holocaust. One miscalculation by either side could result in worldwide annihilation. If you¿re looking for a top notch book to read this is it.

This book is very easy to read. It gives a minute by minute account, which is something that many books don't offer. Out of all the history books I've read, this one was the greatest. The material covered is incredible. It doesn't only cover the U.S. side of the event, but of all those involved.

This book started off great and at first I could not put it down, but then towards the middle it loses its steam. It became very boring with facts that I did not care about and did not relate to the Cuban Missile Crisis they were detailed descriptions of Kennedy's officials and their background stories.

A new view on an old topic. Fast read and very interesting with stories never told before.

We recognize that the Cuban Missile Crisis was a moment in history that should not be forgotten, and this book reveals previously unknown information that offers some insight to the activities of the time. However, there just doesn't seem to be enough new information to make an interesting book of this length. The main points are well known, so the author was faced with a large challenge in making it new again.
