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. What you realiz...

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...

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...

This is a book I came across a few months ago at the library (although I’m writing this in the beginning of October, so I found this the last week of September), and since it had Hamilton on the front, of course I picked it up. I have a deep obsession with Alexander Hamilton, thanks to me jumping...

Really nice biography of Alexander Hamilton, a popular choice right now for teens especially, with the success of the Broadway musical. Brockenbrough takes us through his entire life, beginning with the hurricane in St. Croix that he experienced as a boy, in a very readable biography full of illu...

Don't get me wrong, I love some good information about Alexander Hamilton as he his one of my favorite founding fathers. This book however made the information come across as boring, making me procrastinate on reading it often. Also, some parts of the book are difficult to understand if you don't...

This book, written for teens and YA, was definitely easier to get through than other recent biographies. I knew little about this Revolutionary and didn't have time to tackle a longer and more in-depth study of his life. Through it, I felt I was able to understand the Revolutionary War battles an...
