This is an exceptional biographical story of Alexander Hamilton. While it's aimed at teens and young adults, and I haven't fit into those categories for some time, I found myself gripped by the narrative momentum and utterly engrossed in the personal story of this exceptional man.

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...

The only reason this is four stars and not five for is because it took me way to long to finish it and I think that partly is because the font color in the book is a light brown which was really hard on the eyes. But the actual writing was really good, very easy to read even though i did end up l...

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.

It's clear this biography was written for a young adult audience - it keeps a quick, readable face throughout and doesn't dwell on Hamilton's more questionable behavior (like his extramarital affairs). Still, I appreciated how this book offered a concise and succinct look at Hamilton's life. This...

An extremely accessible biography of Hamilton and an excellent resource for teens who are fans of Miranda's musical but not up to the challenge of reading the Chernow biography. Follows Hamilton from his meager origins in Nevis to the legacy he left behind in the United States. While his flaws ar...

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...
