Publisher's Summary

Disclaimer: this is a summary and not the original book.
Alexander Hamilton was a man that came from nothing, but changed the world over the years. From an immigrant to an influential and significant figure in American history, he shaped the newborn America and gave it the order and prosperity it has today.
Nobody has done a better job than Ron Chernow in presenting the full life story of America's founding father, Hamilton. It allows us listeners to go back in time and witness the birth of America, the professional and private struggles of Hamilton and how he overcame them all.
"Those who stand for nothing will fall for anything" (Alexander Hamilton)
Alexander is one of the most greatly misunderstood figures in American history. He had been criticized for many of his ideas but he always stood by them firmly. His long-sightedness has allowed the United States of America to prosper today.
Note: This summary is wholly written and published by readtrepreneur.com. It is not affiliated with the original author in any way.
PS: There is no better time to educate yourself on the history of America and appreciate the sacrifices of one of America's great founding fathers. Be reminded of the journey our founding fathers had to take to secure the future of America's children.

Painful

I thought this would be a great way to get many of the highlights of Hamilton's life and avoid the 36 hours it would take to listen to Mr. Chernow's book. However, the narration is simply too painful to listen to. It is bland and dull, there is no inflection at all. Halfway in I went and listened to the sample of the whole book and Mr.Brick is so much more pleasing to listen to. I will be buying the full book.

Mediocre "Cliff Notes" Want-a-Be

didn't care for narrator ... inadequate flow ... always refers to Hamilton as"Alexander" which is too much familiarity for this historical figure.
