Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow


Recommended Posts

Loving this book that's filling a fuzzy patch of american history for me.


Stories of speculators in scrips (i.e. subscription rights for govt bonds) and stock jobbers as well as tales of tariff strategy between the US, France and UK show that human nature hasn't changed much since those times. Hamiltons scandals and personal feuds also liven things up.

I also loved this book. Chernow always does research where he finds things no one else has. For instance all the letters to a newspaper in the Caribbean that were signed "a gentleman from NY." Chernow figured out that was Hamilton.


The play is terrific. My daughter took me on one of my visits to LA. She had already seen it multiple times in NYC.
