The story of the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 has been told many times, but this edition includes new research and documents that make it the most up-to-date book on the subject. Narrator Bob Walter has a steady, authoritative voice that he uses effectively to move this taut nonfiction thriller forward. To emphasize the key points in the narrative, he pauses effectively, a technique that enables us to absorb the complicated web of facts and personalities. Walter changes his voice only slightly to denote characters, appropriately allowing the text to speak for itself. At times, he seems close to crossing the line into melodrama, but, for the most part, he keeps his voice steady and his emotions in check.
