    Great history that reads like a novel This book gives good insight to the development of our country and the founding fathers. It also covers the beginning of our political parties.

    Short & lacking. This book only touched the basic. Missing personal endeavors, struggles and family info regarding marriage & descendants. Initiating of parties could have more in depth.

    Watched Hamilton on Disney+. Just had to learn more about Alexander Hamilton. This was a good, concise book about him. Just wish I had read it before watching the show. Well written & gave the highlights of the life of this great man.

    Cliff notes 30 minutes after opening it was completed. Bare bones biography. Will look for another book to flesh out the details.

    Good for kids -- short with lots of facts and dates about Hamilton's life, but don't bother if you are a serious history buff, it will disappoint. Very little about who he was as a person and the times he lived in.
