I just got my copy today straight from GM. Here's the link:

Setting the Pace

Almost 500pgs. Lot of color photos, illustrations, historical stuff. Chronicles many of the neat stories behind the cars that were made. Pretty much the whole N-body development is detailed. Great item for the GM and Olds fan and cheaper than I've seen it elsewhere. Plus, they're brand-new, so quality is guaranteed.

I have that book, its amazing when you read of all the innovative things they did such as the development of the Rocket engine. The sad part is it ends on an optomistic note at the 100th ann. the authors not knowing that there wasnt even a full decade left.
