I received an arc of this book from Fiewel and Friends and I really enjoyed it! The writing flowed very well and it was easy to get through. I recommend to anyone who wants to read a Hamilton biography but doesn't have time for the 600 page one.
The main issue for me was that I knew most of the i...

Finally a history book that isn't boring! This book flowed nicely, the chapters were short, and it is written in a way that makes Alexander Hamilton feel like someone you have met. More biographies on historical people and events should be written like this so anyone can enjoy it, not just histor...

This book is really amazing. It is overflowing with info about Hamilton, his family, his colleagues, and his role in the history of the United States. I had very little knowledge of his role or impact before getting this book in the mail. I now have a much more comprehensive understanding of what...

When Martha first announced Hamilton, I was thrilled. I couldn’t wait to see Hamilton through the eyes of such a spectacular woman.
Filled with notes and photos, Revolutionary is as much the story of the birth of America as it is Hamilton’s story, including the messy parts. Taking over what is now...

I have a deep obsession with Alexander Hamilton, thanks to me jumping...

This Hamilton biography is not nearly the slog that the Chernow one is, but it is still dense and involves a time-commitment. Don’t count on finishing it in a matter of a couple days.
In addition to accessible but still challenging text, Brockenbrough provides excellent backmatter to help readers...

Enlightening and interesting. Excellent epilogue which includes all kinds of related topics. A bibliography and end notes make this a useful tool for researching students. My only "beef" with the book is that the plentiful illustrations do not offer artist attributions, with one or two exceptions...

A good book for younger readers about one of our more controversial Founding Fathers. It presents a detailed (yet not overly so) description of the man and his world. Very timely, as the musical has brought Hamilton back into the public eye.

This is excellent! Brockenbrough's writing is accessible and informative. She makes Alexander a real person, and his life, and the birth of the country, a fascinating story. Highly recommended.

Brockenbrough's passion and love for her subject are apparent. Her version of Hamilton's biography is underscored by it; her extensive work is obvious.
