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.
