"Here is Burr, the flawed but gifted politician who made powerful enemies because his charm and skill ..." Bogus, bogus, bogus, an historically bogus book. I recall, during a research paper I was doing at the Library of Congress, many years ago during college, stumbling upon a copy of the financially criminal charter for banks for all eternity for New York, inserted by the master crook, Aaron Burr. Flawed? Definitely corrupt and a crook and financial fraud, which was why Alexander Hamilton quickly distanced himself, and condemned Burr in the public press. (CIrcumstances around Jefferson, Adams and their professional relationship with Burr are somewhat murky, but would highly recommend Forrest McDonald's most amazing biography on Alexander Hamilton.) Burr was a scoundrel of the first level, nothing positive about that crook.
