A great presentation of who both Burr and Hamilton were from birth to the reasons behind the famous duel.  The book is the perfect length not to bore students who might want to know a little bit more information about the historic event.  I particularly liked how the book was arranged to show how many similarities the men had --  being orphans, patriots, becoming lawyers, etc.  It is worth the time to read.  Recommended for all levels of school libraries.
