Did not know that Chernow was working on a Grant bio. Have to get after my Alexander Hamilton book, lest I fall behind

Weird that Amazon doesn't provide a "following" button for Chernow on the pages of his books. Thanks for mention the Grant book, I'll be putting it on my Wish Lists. I've read the Washington book and also Titan, which was very good, I highly recommend it. I've had the Hamilton book for years, but in a probably somewhat subconscious motivation I've avoided it because of the hype over the Broadway show. Since it's unlikely there will be a "Grant" musical anytime soon I'll probably get to that one first!
