Alexander Hamilton was orphaned as a child and came to America with only a hunger to work. He went on to serve as George Washington's aide during the Revolutionary War, created the country's financial system, became America's first Treasury Secretary before being killed in a duel with the Vice-President.
Hamilton may have been involved in the politics of establishing the United States but his example is just as relevant to office politics: jump ahead of the scandal, never let a crisis go to waste. Combining biography and history with humour Jeff Wilser outlines how Hamilton's advice and the example of his life is a manual to live by.
Jeff Wilser is the author of 'The Man Cave Book' and has written for magazines from 'GQ' and 'Men's Fitness' to 'Glamour', as well as for the Huffington Post.
