In this touching story about the highest-level executive to turn whistleblower of all time, Mark Whitacre tells all. Enormously revealing and moving, this biography shares with its readers how, via faith in God and the patient love of his wife Ginger, Mark is today an inspiring spiritual force for good in the world.
Written with finesse and passion, Mark Whitacre Against All Odds reveals the family’s perspective, especially how Ginger kept Mark alive. Through her, his story begins where most other incarcerated men’s ends— in prison. It details how Whitacre got down on his knees in a filthy cell and begged God for guidance; how, from that moment on, he removed fears or doubts in his existence. Liberated after nearly a decade in prison, Whitacre’s essential message is simple—live by the Golden Rule, always tell the truth, look for the good in everyone, and know that spiritual wealth is far more important than material wealth.
Author Stevin Hoover invites everyone to learn why Whitacre is called a national hero by the FBI and a spiritual inspiration by Paul A. Willis who wrote the Foreword. Discover how Whitacre is now dedicated to living in accordance with spiritual principles that apply to everyone’s life. Well-written, candid, and sincere, Mark Whitacre Against All Odds is one of the best of the world’s tell-alls—as genial, eccentric, and unique as Whitacre’s life. Read this book and discover how Mark Whitacre has triumphed against all odds.
Says the author "People say there is nothing certain in life except death and taxes. Well, you can add one more thing to that. The only other thing that is as certain in life as death and taxes is that Ginger and Mark Whitacre will never get divorced. It is an impossibility because their love is unshakable."
