This was superficial shallow and nearly devoid of useful information about the book or the subject. Wikipedia likely provides more information on Hamilton than you’ll derive from this. Will be the last time i audible one of these. Don’t repeat my error. You’ve been warned.
It was a concise and useful summary, read by an appealing and capable narrator. My only criticism is of the format. Each (short) chapter begins with the narrator saying: "Chapter X, Summary and Highlights," and ends with "Best Quote: "... ......'". With such short chapters, and the reader's foreknowledge that they purchased the "Summary and Highlights" version of the book, these running headlines are an unnecessary and distracting nuissance. I don't see myself buying this summary format again.
I'm a big fan of Hamilton The Musical and I thought I'd 'read' the book on which it's based. Alas, I really didn't enjoy it at all. Partly because I didn't realise it was just the summary of each chapter (which is my fault because I didn't read the blurb properly) but mainly because the book is actually rather boring (to me, of course). However if you like historical manuscripts and are into learning a bit more about the man behind the musical, this is a quick way of doing it.
