I enjoyed that Chernow's book too.

The Talleyrand exact words are worth to be posted completely:

“I consider Napoleon, Fox, and Hamilton the three Greatest Men of our epoch and, if I were forced to decide between the three, I would give without hesitation the First Place to Hamilton.”

“He divined Europe.”

A New Yorker could have done that.
