Publisher's Summary

Explore the fascinating life of Alexander Hamilton!
Alexander Hamilton is one of the most extraordinary figures in American history. A deep thinker, a military leader, and a political dynamo, he was George Washington's right-hand man and perhaps the most important figure in the shaping of the Constitution. His policies and practices in government set the United States down a path of commercial wealth and economic stability. His ideas still resonate in the powerful nation he helped create.  
During his time, Hamilton was a divisive figure. A political extremist who antagonized the conservative parts of the new republic while protecting its former opponents. The man at the heart of the nation's first major sex scandal. A political operator whose actions outraged opponents and eventually led to the duel that cost him his life.  
It was an extraordinary life, made more extraordinary by Hamilton's origins. He was an outsider, an immigrant from the Caribbean who arrived in New York to make a new life for himself. In doing so, he helped to shape the framework of politics and commerce in America. In retrospect, the amazing thing about his fame is not its recent resurgence, but that it took so long for him to be widely recognized.  
This audiobook tells the story of Alexander Hamilton. The story of a nation born in blood, in struggle, and in the dynamism that immigrants could bring.

This was a very easy read. Sometimes I find biographies get boring with too many details, but this one seemed to highlight the important facts.

Top level insights

A good starting point for anyone who wants to know about this historical personality. It reads like an actual biography. Certainly worth what I paid, though.

A bit basic.

Any additional comments?

Honestly unsophisticated biography, it’s my personal opinion. Detail are decent but not much else. No annotations or explanation to speak of.
