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.

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.

must-read

It’s a must-read not for just every fan. It’s a summary but very specific in detail.

Plenty of detail and clean transitions

This book was awesome as it is, and the narrator, different from unabridged, is brilliant, one of my favorites. But, Hamilton's story is really fascinating, may our nation never forget the immense contributions of Hamilton.

Educative enough.

Every once in a while, we need audiobooks like this to be absorbed with and be reminded of the history of our country. It’s indeed an honor to read this although it’s just a summary, it has been educative enough.

full of hope

The book is full of charisma and hope. I admire Chernow for straightening out the misconceptions that Hamilton had been involved with. When he rose to power, it was an inspiring picture. It gives hope especially to those who do not come from rich families. When one strives, he can achieve his desires.

Tis a wonderful summary after all.

Hamilton’s early life, where he started out with nothing is written. This is something I wasn’t aware of. I thought he was born with a golden spoon in his mouth. From there, he was promoted. I didn’t know of these facts. Thanks readtrepreneur publishing, for making a wonderful summary.
