Just do it and buy it!! Excellent book prepared from secret materials held by National Archives in the USA. In general all materials, notes and personal documents produced by Kissinger himself are due to be revealed 25 years after his death, what was his own wish. There were a few legal attempts to open those materials, so far with no success. Finally Kissinger himself decided to publish these two cases in this book, showing the other side of two major conflicts , one of them was Yom Kippur War. What is interesting, book shows Kissinger’s sketches of all major conversations between Russians and Americans trying to prevent the worst. Book perfectly shows the reality of the Cold War as a documentary and still has a character of the thrilling story. Book shows also the other, unknown side of the politics, showing the contrast of super powers vs. human sensitivity. This documentary is the best ever published by Kissinger.
