Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating life of Alexander Hamilton, then pay attention....
 

Alexander Hamilton, unlike many of the other founding fathers of the United States, was born outside of wedlock and was an orphan at the age of 13 after his mother died. He was thrown into the world, depending on the charity of friends and neighbors. 

That perhaps is one of the reasons why Alexander Hamilton was fiscally sensitive and always anxious about funding and finance, not only for himself but for the new nation of the United States, where he emigrated when he was in his late teens. It is no wonder then that he became the first secretary of the treasury of the United States and that he even saved banks from financial collapse. 

Hamilton had a brilliant mind. Although the law was his calling, he was blessed with charisma that could persuade even the stoniest of hearts. As a prolific writer, he never shied from presenting his legal (and personal) opinions regarding the political issues of the day. 

In Alexander Hamilton: A Captivating Guide to an American Founding Father Who Wrote the Majority of the Federalist Papers, you will discover topics such as:

  • From Nevis to Boston
  • From pen to sword
  • Onset of Hamilton’s political career
  • Economy and the first national bank
  • The time the troubles start
  • Empowerment of political parties
  • The bitterly fought elections
  • Bottom of the curve
  • And much, much more!

Really good book

It also includes Founding Mothers as well. Besides going through all the people that made America America, it also covers things that are necessary to know their contributions. You won't have heard of all the people in here, though they all merit considering.

Concise and Informative

A really good AUDIBLE for beginners who are starting to learn American history. A book like this should replace the history books in our public schools.

Remember the founders and know what they meant rather of the crocked mess that our politicians and courts have given us.

The highlights of his life & political leadership

This is not for those looking for an educational treatise on Hamilton’s contribution to the America of today, but it is a quick and very superficial story of a great man.

Excellent

I have been watching for a source that documents all the important battles and actions of the Revolutionary War and this is it. The audible also describes the important characters who made American freedom possible. Well-researched, compact and insightful, this audible is great.

This is a very detailed audiobook.

I must satisfy my interest as an observer of the beginnings of this country of ours, and how important Alexander Hamilton was in its life.
