The ten dollar founding father without a father got a lot further by working a lot harder by being a lot smarter by being a self start

review Alexander Hamilton

Alexander Hamilton Read & Download Á 104 Ica is the result of Hamilton’s countless sacrifices to champion ideas that were often wildly disputed during his time “To repudiate his legacy” Chernow writes “is in many ways to repudiate the modern world” Chernow here recounts Hamilton’s turbulent life an illegitimate largely self taught orphan from the Caribbean he came out of nowhere to take America by storm rising to become George Washington’s aide de camp in the Continental Army coauthoring The Federalist Papers founding the Bank of New York leading the Federalist Party and becoming the first Treasury Secretary of the United StatesHistorians have long told the story of America’s birth as the triumph of Jefferson’s democratic ideals over the aristocratic intentions of Hamilton Chernow presents an entirely different man whose legendary ambitions were motivated not merely by self. I ve been wracking my brains literally for months trying to figure out who I can compare Alexander Hamilton to on the modern politocelebrity scene or to whom I can compare him if you douchey grammar wonks preferThere are two reasons that process has taken months 1 I m currently operating with the mental processing power of an old Radio Shack TRS 80 on the plus side I guess that means I can run awesome software like Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing and 2 Alexander Hamilton was one uniue son of a Scottish lairdPut Kanye West Noam Chomsky Donald Trump and Steve Martin into a blender and what do you getWell probably a pretty disgusting slurry of liuefied body parts Let me rephrase put the personalities intellects and uirkiest components not to mention the thin skin in some cases of Kanye Noam Chomsky Donald Trump and Steve Martin into a personality intellect and uirk blending processor and what do you get Something that comes out looking but hopefully not smelling given that gents of that vintage probably didn t smell so fresh after a hot summer day traipsing about in heavy unwashed woolen garments a little bit like Alexander Hamilton I d be willing to wager that s the first time anyone anywhere ever has used both Noam Chomsky and Donald Trump as a comparison for an individual that s how singular Hamilton was And how much of a trailblazer I amSmarter people than I have written at great length about this book and its subject so I shan t prattle on for pages and pages Suffice it to say Alexander Hamilton is as influential a person as there is when it comes to shaping US political history and the institutions that affect our lives every single day and he was perhaps even uniue than he was influential Sure this book could replace the candlestick in the game of Clue just as easily as it can be an educational tool It was Colonel Mustard in the library with his copy of Hamilton that bludgeoned poor Professor Plum to death But there are few biographies of recent vintage that can match the immense scope mind boggling level of detail and compulsive readability of this one If you re a history buff in any way or just want to see what all the Broadway hubbub is about you ll want to give this book a whirlA couple of words of warning however first if you re a Thomas Jefferson acolyte you might want to brace yourself Mr Chernow does not treat our country s second Vice President and lifelong Hamilton rival kindly styling him a scheming Francophile bon vivant of the most pernicious kind though really if you re going to be a scheming bon vivant you might as well be of the most pernicious kind otherwise you re just half assing it and if I believe anything it s that anything worth doing is worth whole assing Second if ever a man was on another man s metaphorical nuts it is Ron Chernow on Alexander Hamilton s There are a few instances in which Mr Chernow attempts to maintain a fa ade or at least a veneer do we think a veneer is thinner than a fa ade of scholarly distance and objectivity but by and large his Hamiltonian hard on is of such obvious and epic proportions that I m told the Washington Monument has expressed concerns to the Mayor of Washington DC that when Chernow visits our nation s capital he s in violation of the Height of Buildings Act of 1910 The Mayor has thus far refused comment though a source indicates that he has at the very least asked that Mr Chernow not wear sweat pants when he visits the District and has asked him to and I uote try to tuck it into his belt We ll call this a strong 45 stars

Alexander Hamilton Read & Download Á 104 Interest but by passionate patriotism and a stubborn will to build the foundations of American prosperity and power His is a Hamilton far human than we’ve encountered before from his shame about his birth to his fiery aspirations from his intimate relationships with childhood friends to his titanic feuds with Jefferson Madison Adams Monroe and Burr and from his highly public affair with Maria Reynolds to his loving marriage to his loyal wife Eliza And never before has there been a vivid account of Hamilton’s famous and mysterious death in a duel with Aaron Burr in July of 1804Chernow’s biography is not just a portrait of Hamilton but the story of America’s birth seen through its most central figure At a critical time to look back to our roots Alexander Hamilton will remind readers of the purpose of our institutions and our heritage as America. Alexander Hamilton The musical has brought much publicity to this early founding father I have never seen the musical before but a few Goodreads friends whose reviews I trust recently read this biography I had been following their discussions in the nonfiction book club but still wasn t sure I am in the Doris Kearns Goodwin historian camp and had never read Ron Chernow before What finally pushed me to read this book is that a Chicago Cubs player posted that it took him eighteen months but he finally finished I was sold With much being written about Hamilton his is what I took away from this award winning biography Hamilton was the first rags to riches immigrant who embodied the American dream and achieved lofty goals from being Washington s advisor to the first secretary of the treasury of the United States Hamilton s vision for the future of the United States his national bank national debt and repayments enhancing the British model of government on American soil a model for an industrial society that would establish the United States as a key world player the preservation of the Constitution for as long as possible and prevention of secession by any section of the country Federalists vs Republicans and how divided the government was at the country s founding based on their views of agrarian vs industrial society distrust of banks supporting England vs France the country being centered in the north or south and seeing presidents Adams Jefferson Madison and Monroe in a completely different light than the one placed on a pedestal in school books Hamilton and his wife Eliza as champions for the welfare of abused women and orphans and Eliza and her children preserving her husband s memory as the oldest American widow during the 19th century she never remarried in fifty years Hamilton was a love story between him and Eliza and between him and America It was deeply researched and had all the elements of a uality written history book that read like a story I finished the last third in a day I finally took the plunge and read a Chernow biography and am glad that I did and I have a feeling that it won t be my last This was such a compelling book about a compelling man and will most likely be in my top five nonfiction books for this year 5 full stars
