Thirteen Days: A Memoir of the Cuban Missile Crisis - Robert F. Kennedy, Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr.

"Recent scholarship confirms the portrait of John F. Kennedy sketched by his brother in Thirteen Days: a remarkably cool, thoughtful, nonhysterical, self-possessed leader, aware of the weight of decision, incisive in his questions, firm in his judgment, always in charge, steering his advisers perseveringly in the direction he wanted to go."
