Whitehall's first book was Shark Infested Waters: Tales of an Actor's Agent, and his son Jack illustrated it. TLS called the book "a most entertaining memoir" that was "wittily illustrated." In October 2013, he released his second book Him & Me, which was co-written with his son. Written in two distinctive styles, it reflects the different personalities of its authors.
