Wisler chronicles Hamilton’s life by taking lessons and advice that we can learn from everything he did and the way he lived his own life. Hamilton was a scrappy orphan who had an insatiable hunger for learning. He read everything he could get his hands on, and then he wrote as much as he could. Helping win the Revolutionary War, ratifying the Constitution and creating the country’s financial system were just some of the things that Alexander Hamilton accomplished. Wisler explains Hamilton’s basic maxims, as Hamilton liked to say, for anyone who wants success in money, romance or a good fight. Hamilton was a man before his time, and people of all generations will learn from him for years to come.
