RFK's "book" is only 80 or so pages long, there is an interesting forward written by Arthur Schlesinger in 1992 and an "afterward" written in the early 1970s.

Perhaps biased because it's by RFK, but he did have the inside scoop and the communication between Russia and USA was very interesting and intense.

It seemed the amount of information that could/needed to be processed was much smaller than today. 13 days seems like an eternity, and one gets the impression that the powers that be could have plenty of time to think about the situation in depth.
