Is there anything you would change about this book?
The dramatic reading style of the narrator was grating and inappropriate for a book of this type. Audiobooks of this type benefit from a more "neutral" and even voiced style.
How could the performance have been better?
Eliminate the feeble efforts to read quotes in the speaking style of the individual being quoted. For example, quotes of Russian participants came across more as "Boris and Natasha" cartoon imitations that as useful or dramatic additions. Similarly, efforts to mimic the Kennedy speaking style (Cuba/"Cube-er") were weak and distracting.
Any additional comments?
Will be of substantive interest to readers not generally familiar with information in the Kennedy tapes. Not a huge amount of new information/insight for those more generally familiar with the current literature on the crisis.
