This is a wonderful account of the life of Hamilton. Always thought of as "the founder who was shot in a duel" or "the founder who had scandalous affairs", this book reveals the intelligence and wisdom of the key author of the papers upon which the Constitution was based. The speaker makes the text come alive well - I was totally fascinated with Alexander Hamilton.
I have read other bios by this author and I chose this audio book based on his past books not because of any interest in the subject. I was pleased again......outstanding
There's always a caveat to audiobooks or books like this. They will enrich your knowledge so much, but are so voluminous that you must commit weeks or months to completing them. I did not know much about Alexander Hamilton before reading this, other than a vague sense that he was one of those white dudes who founded the country. This audio book blew me away with knowledge about all the struggles he and George and others went through to get this country started on the right foot and keep it there as long as they lived. Truly remarkable. I feel like if every American read this, maybe we wouldn't squabble so much over petty things and understand truly what a remarkable country this is and how tumultuous was its birth.
