"..a fascinating book about a fascinating but forgotten man. Fisher doesn't white-wash his relative's faults or embellish his assets. This is a cards-on-the-table biography. The Pacesetter is heavily notated and draws on hundreds of sources to light the shadows of a marketing genius who shunned the spotlight. {It} takes Fisher through his quarrels with Miami Beach resident Al Capone, the liquor Fisher hid during Prohibition, the developer's fights with Florida anti-Semitism and racism, and the death of his only child, 26 days after the boy was born."

**** Four Star Rating --- The Indianapolis Star

"{The Pacesetter} was written.... to offset a general lack of biographical information....Extensively researched, it gives significant detail about Fisher's projects. Fisher's achievements deserve to be documented..." Library Journal

"{Carl G. Fisher} the Miami Beach Film is one of my favorites among all that we've done on the American Experience....But if the film has brought "The Pacesetter" more attention that's all to the good. --- David McCullough
