Peter Golden is an award-winning journalist and the author of six full-length works of non-fiction and fiction.

Some of Peter Golden's work has appeared in the Detroit Free Press Magazine, Albany Times Union, New Jersey Monthly, Microsoft's eDirections, Beyond Computing, Electronic Business, Midstream, The Forward, and Capital Region Magazine.

Golden's Quiet Diplomat, a biography of industrialist and political-insider Max M. Fisher made the Detroit Free Press bestseller list. Among those he interviewed were Presidents Nixon, Ford, Reagan, and Bush; Secretaries of State Kissinger, Haig, and Shultz; and Israeli Prime Ministers Shamir, Peres, and Rabin.

With J. Stanley Shaw, Golden wrote, I Rest My Case: My Long Journey from the Castle on the Hill to Home, a memoir that chronicles Shaw's life from his childhood years under the supervision of the Brooklyn Hebrew Orphan Asylum in the 1930s to his career as one of the preeminent bankruptcy attorneys in the United States.

Golden's novel, Comeback Love, will be published the first week of November 2010.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Jason Raznick on March 3, 2005
Format: Hardcover
such a successful, caring and genuine person. I am 27 and was always interested in how Max Fisher rose from humble beginnings. This book definitely offers some nice insight into that.
For example, when Max didn't do the work he planned for the day, he would skip a meal.
Anyway, I am just sad I was never able to meet Max in person, because I know he would have been a wonderful mentor, who always had time to lend an ear and offer insight.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By G. J. Coatsworth on September 28, 2010
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Living in metro Detroit my entire life, Max Fisher was a person who was always in the newspaper. He goes down in history as a man of great accomplishments. Hard work gave him great monetary rewards and he was willing to use his wealth to support causes that gave him pleasure. I believe that metro Detroit is better because of him. It was interesting for me to find out more about him. He is a great role model for people with ambition and drive.

I had no problems with this purchase and would use the store that sold me this book again.

Mr. Fisher is someone I would have liked to know. He cared about our home state and great city of Detroit.
