I recently wrote a review of the 36 hour audiobook Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. In this book of less than three hours author Mark Steinberg presents a superb summary of Chernow's biography of Hamilton. If one wants to learn a lot about this great founder of our republic but does not wish to devote 36 hours, I highly recommend this book. It is brief, concise, and offers an excellent summary of the main events discussed in great detain in Chernow's Hamilton biography.

Like any book this book is written based on the authors viewpoint and the data he collected to form that viewpoint. In the case of this book I struggled with how it's contents lined up with the contents of other books written about the timeframe in which Hamilton lived. The author chose his words and statements carefully to generate the picture he wants you to see which for me conflicted with what I had understood and read about the period of time our nation was forged. As always there are 2 sides to any discussion and I recommend readers search for other books from that period to get a full and accurate picture. I do appreciate this book as it has allowed me to create my picture/viewpoint of Hamilton.
Short but informative introduction to Hamiltons life and career. Wish there was a longer biography of him on audible. Book well read and reader has pleasant voice although somewhat flawed by a slightly mechanical delivery..
