    Ron Chernow, whom the New York Times called "as elegant an architect of monumental histories as we've seen in decades", now brings to startling life the man who was arguably the most important figure in American history, who never attained the presidency, but who had a far more lasting impact than many who did.

    Overall

    Not knowing much about Alexander Hamilton except the negative tidbits heard hear and there, this excellent book exposes that hearsay as the echo of the character assassination of his political enemies from so long ago. Mr. Hamilton had his defects like everyone else. However in perspective with the other great and famous men of his time, that were also influential on the formation of the United States, this book clearly illuminates what a tremendous and productive (and undervalued) genius Mr. Hamilton was.

    Because of the author's attention to detail and meticulous way of unfolding events, things really came to life. You really get a sense of how it must have felt to live through those politically turbulent times. If nothing else, and assuming you enjoy American History, I think you will gain a new insight into those dimensions.

    Is there a forgotten spiritual tool that offers each one of us the ability to heal ourselves, our relationship with others, and even our endangered planet? Yes, says Gregg Braden. On The Lost Mode of Prayer, Braden examines evidence from both modern science and ancient texts to shed light on a secret lost to humanity in the year 325.

    Overall

    This book is a valuable lesson in a simple, basic prayer method. You get to take advantage of the author's extensive research, knowledge, and experience. If everyone who believes in prayer and a higher power practiced this prayer method, it would be hard to imagine that the world would not be a better place. This book shows that the traditional methods of prayer, although they have their place, don't have near the potential of this lost mode. I really liked this book, and would give it five stars for content. However, because it tended to be more of a lecture, it could have been better in guiding the listener/reader in the art of practical application. As a result, I gave only four stars.
