It is no secret, at least to most that Burr got a raw deal from authors and historians. He is best knows for killing Alexander Hamilton in a duel. Alexander Hamilton was Burr's nemesis did everything he could to instigate and castigate Burr at every turn.
The book is well written but it did not engage me. Was not a page-turner and was difficult to finish. I am aware that history books are rarely a page-turner, but this was difficult to get through. I do though.
Not much to say about the book except that I am glad I finished it. It was not what I was looking for, but that is my own fault. I am sure there are many who will enjoy it.
