After reading John Adams, I was sure Alexander Hamilton was nothing but a crooked monarchist. It was great to get the other side of the story. Hamilton was surely the most interesting of the founding fathers, but he was also possibly one of the most important, not only due his many great accomplishments during his Treasury days, but also due to his influence on George Washington.

It was a great audiobook narrated superbly by Scott Brick. My only complaint would be that it was TOO detailed in parts, stretching the running time to over 36 hours.

Now I need to read a Jefferson biography because this book painted a very poor picture of him.
