"Hamilton: The Revolution" by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jeremy McCarter is a must-read for anyone who loves musical theatre, American history, or just damn good storytelling. Miranda's creation of the hit Broadway show "Hamilton" was nothing short of a phenomenon, and this book gives readers an inside look at how it all came together. With detailed accounts of the creative process, from the initial concept to the final product, and gorgeous photos and artwork, "Hamilton: The Revolution" is a celebration of the power of art to inspire and unite us. I highly recommend it to anyone who believes in the importance of the arts in our society. ( )

An interesting look into the creation of a new, unique, piece of theatre. Interesting both for the insight into the lyrics, and the interstitials about the production, from White House premier to the premiere opening night.
Best accompanied by the soundtrack. Familiarity with the music will increase satisfaction with the book. ( )

I have only listened to the Hamilton soundtrack once, and I've never seen the Broadway show, but even I found this account interesting. I'm fascinated by Miranda and everything that went into making this show. The end notes were not very useful for me, because I had downloaded the audiobook and didn't have the pdf of the lyrics to go with it. I'd like to get my hands on that sometime and listen again. [Edited: Now that I've seen the print book... Hello? What was I thinking? This book was a good listen, but the PRINT BOOK is a feast for the eyes. Don't listen to this book unless you have the print book to follow along!] ( )
