Two centuries after his death Alexander Hamilton is headline news again.
He is one of the most compelling of America’s Founding Fathers, an orphan who came to America with little but ambition. He went on to become a General in the Revolutionary War, created the US’s financial system and is immortalised on the $10 bill.
Hamilton’s life is fascinating, and it can serve as an example to us all. For anyone interested in success, romance, money, honour or duelling Hamilton has worthwhile advice.
Combining biography and history with humour, this is advice that has survived for over three hundred years:
Seduce with your strengths
Go to war for your promotion
Being right trumps being popular
Learn from your enemies
Alexander Hamilton’s Guide to Life is a perfect accompaniment to the US musical Hamilton arriving in the UK, about which Barack Obama said “It’s brilliant”.
