I am a creative writer that has a unique point of view on everything. My opinion may not be the same as yours but that's what keeps everything interesting. How boring the world would be if we were all the same.

Book Description

Winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s groundbreaking musical Hamilton is as revolutionary as its subject, the poor kid from the Caribbean who fought the British, defended the Constitution, and helped to found the United States. Fusing hip-hop, pop, R&B, and the best traditions of theater, this once-in-a-generation show broadens the sound of Broadway, reveals the storytelling power of rap, and claims our country’s origins for a diverse new generation.

HAMILTON: THE REVOLUTION gives readers an unprecedented view of both revolutions, from the only two writers able to provide it. Miranda, along with Jeremy McCarter, a cultural critic and theater artist who was involved in the project from its earliest stages–“since before this was even a show,” according to Miranda–traces its development from an improbable perfor­mance at the White House to its landmark opening night on Broadway six years later. In addition, Miranda has written more than 200 funny, revealing footnotes for his award-winning libretto, the full text of which is published here.

Their account features photos by the renowned Frank Ockenfels and veteran Broadway photographer, Joan Marcus; exclusive looks at notebooks and emails; interviews with Questlove, Stephen Sond­heim, leading political commentators, and more than 50 people involved with the production; and multiple appearances by Presi­dent Obama himself. The book does more than tell the surprising story of how a Broadway musical became a national phenomenon: It demonstrates that America has always been renewed by the brash upstarts and brilliant outsiders, the men and women who don’t throw away their shot.

Pros
This is creative magnificent at its best. It is enjoyable and fun to read. You get a personal feel that is both intimate and imaginative. You find yourself hanging on every single word, all the way through the book.
Cons
While the content is outstanding, the format of the kindle version is unreadable. No matter what kind of operation system that you have, the pages are unreadable. You have to zoom in and then move it around to read it. It simply is not enjoyable in this format.
Summary
The creative mind is a mystery to behold. You can see the story unfolding in most books, but this is rare gem that gives you a sneak peek of how the mind works. See the backstage information that you crave and have your desires fulfilled. With personal notes and commentary, you simply cannot absorb enough of the beauty of the book to satisfy your soul. The actual photos are even more of a gem. It is simply a must read like no other books. It raises the bar to what must read actually means.
