Great book about an important 13 days in American history. There are many legitimate areas in which one can criticize JFK, but I am certainly glad that, for those 13 days anyway, he was president, and not any of the many folks around him. Also, Kruschev was, again at this moment anyway, a leader who worked hard to avoid world destruction. Finally, thankfully Castro had no more power than he did. It would have been better if he had much less, better yet none.
