Publisher's Summary

Alexander Hamilton by Jon Meacham | Summary & Highlights - Not Original Book
This story of Alexander Hamilton details a true story of an American Revolutionary war hero who was a true founding father. Hamilton was born in disarray in the British West Indies. He escaped a life of meaninglessness and moved to New York as a teenager where he set his feet in political and military prowess.
Over the years, he worked with the greatest leaders in American history. He was the chief of staff to General Washington in the Revolutionary War and his Secretary of the Treasury in his two presidential terms.
Hamilton was a man who deeply cared for his family and his duty. Even into his death, he maintained a sense of responsibility future generations should take note of.

Not what I expected.

I'm a big fan of Hamilton The Musical and I thought I'd 'read' the book on which it's based. Alas, I really didn't enjoy it at all. Partly because I didn't realise it was just the summary of each chapter (which is my fault because I didn't read the blurb properly) but mainly because the book is actually rather boring (to me, of course). However if you like historical manuscripts and are into learning a bit more about the man behind the musical, this is a quick way of doing it.
