    "I heal all wounds but those which love hath made." - Inscription on an envelope to Eliza Hamilton from her husband Alexander. I have read many political biographies in my 41 years, but few better. Chernow is able to walk that narrow, tricky trail between scholarship and narrat...

    At what point do you realize that you're in too deep because right now I'm crying actual tears over A. Ham and gosh dang it this is powerful you guys. ALLOW ME TO EXPLAIN TO YOU A THING. Yes, the Broadway musical Hamilton lead me here. I can't say I'd have such a rabid interest...

    I have now read the Hamiltome. (I know that's what people call the book Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote about the musical, but seriously, this thing could stop bullets.) I wouldn't have picked this book up if it weren't for the musical, and it wasn't exactly light reading, but I'm glad that I...
