Reviewer's love this book!

Celeste was so right, after reading about her father, you wish you knew him. Reading about him, though, is surely the next best introduction …From documenting her father growing up in North Carolina and later in Newport News and then playing basketball at Virginia State, to being a captain in the Army stationed at Fort Dix and to raising his family in Willingboro, New Jersey, the author pays a touching tribute to a man who meant so much to his family… to so many others. … Reading about the loving life of Chester Whittaker will make you want to change your life also — to be a better parent, to be a better person.
—Kevin Callahan, Reporter, the Courier-Post

I am so disappointed that I never had the pleasure of meeting such a mighty and wonderful father that Celeste Whittaker so vividly describes in this must read book. Chester Whittaker is not only a blue print for what a father is, but a blue print for what a husband and, more importantly, what a man can attain.
— Branson Wright, Sports reporter for the Cleveland Plain Dealer & co-host of The Sports Brothers radio show
