Hamilton is a hip-hop musical that has swept the country of its proverbial feet, gathering a large following and being nominated for a record 16 Tony Awards. Of course, it quickly captivated the more literate fans of its new book, Hamilton: The Revolution. Earning 4.8/5 stars on Amazon, and a close 4.5/5 from Barnes and Noble, this beautiful picture of literature has all the insider looks to the footnotes of lyrics, images from the musical, cast interviews, astounding articles about the creation of the show itself, and informative passages.

This book was written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of Hamilton, and his friend Jeremy McCarter, and the eloquent writing and hilarious interjections from the cast and crew with have you recite words such as Eliza Schuyler Hamilton put sang beautifully in the song Burn, “You built me palaces out of paragraphs, you built cathedrals…”  The book itself was published on April 12, 2016 and is a hardback that’s available in most bookstores in libraries.

This remarkable book is your backstage pass to the groundbreaking show, which describes the life of an illegitimate and orphaned Caribbean child who fought through the distractions and roadblocks in his life to rise above his station and become the first Secretary of the Treasury, and all his fraudulent mistakes and choices later in life.

This novel is full of the process, and it will keep you satisfied as you read page after page about the show. It is an incredible representation of all the work that was put into creating the musical. Miranda and McCarter successfully represented a passionate creation of a revolution, all put together by people who, through sheer motivation, did not throw away their shot.
