Conversations with Papa Charlie made me miss my grandfather and the stories he used to tell me. Growing up in the Washington area, Charles E. Smith was a familiar name to me. I always thought it was a made up corporate entity. It s nice to see that Charles Smith was a real person, and not a heartless corporate giant. I recommend this book to all those who are looking for a little guidance in life, and for anyone who just wants to read some heartwarming stories. --A reader from Bethesda, MD
Papa Charlie s pieces of advice are decidedly homespun ...this unassuming volume turns around and ends on an astonishingly poetic note... --Washingtonian
Clearly shows that this connection lives on after Charles E. Smith s death...Papa Charlie would be proud. --Rockville Gazette
