    I ve been wracking my brains literally for months trying to figure out who I can compare Alexander Hamilton to on the modern politocelebrity scene or to whom I can compare him, if you douchey grammar wonks prefer.There are two reasons that process has taken months 1 I m currently operating with the mental processing power of an old Radio Shack TRS 80 on the plus side, I guess that means I can run awesome software like Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing and 2 Alexander Hamilton was one unique

    Like a lot of people I ve been listening to the Hamilton musical album non stop and read this because it was the source of Lin Manuel Miranda s inspiration to create the brilliant Broadway show The idea that a dense biography of an American Founding Father who was probably best known to the general public as the guy on the the ten dollar bill and the subject of a pretty funny

    If they break this Union, they will break my heart Alexander Hamilton If anybody had told me a year ago that I would be delving into an 800 page biography on arguably America s least known Founding Father, first Secretary of the Treasury and he of ten dollar bill fame, I would have said they were crazy But like so many people who will read this book in the coming years, it all started with a mad love affair for the

    I am now prepared to see the Hamilton musical Also, I now know about Alexander Hamilton than I ever thought I would Despite its length, the book stayed generally interesting throughout There was a section in the middle that got into the establishment of the US banking system where I got a little lost, but overall the book stayed accessible.Another thing that helped keep things interesting was that the audio was read by Scott Brick Brick has to be my favorite audio narrator.The book cove

    4.5 5 stars How does a bastard orphan, son of a whore and a Scotsman, dropped in the middle of a forgottenspot in the Caribbean by providence, impoverished, in squalor, grow up to be a hero and a scholar The ten dollar founding father without a father got a lot further by working a lot harder, by being a lot smarter, by being a self starter, by fourteen, they placed him in charge of a trading charter And ev ry day while slaves were being slaughtered and carted away across the waves, he struggle
