Summary

After losing both of his legs in a car accident at age 18, Scott Rigsby battled his way back from depression and addiction to achieve the unthinkable: he became the first double-leg amputee ever to cross the finish line in the sporting world's most grueling and prestigious competition, the Ironman Triathlon.

Scott has since become an inspiration to hundreds of thousands of physically challenged and able-bodied athletes the world over. Unthinkable documents Scott's remarkable journey.

From the scene of the devastating crash that claimed both of his legs, and his subsequent battle with depression and alcohol addiction, through his dawning realization that God had a greater plan for his life, listeners will be inspired. From his decision to participate in the Ironman competition, to the moment he crossed the finish line, listeners will engage with Scott's unthinkable courage, determination and faith.

Any additional comments?

In his book Unthinkable Scott Rigsby tells his amazing story and bears his soul. He talks candidly about his horrible accident, his struggle with the aftermath, the dark days and finally his rise to becoming a truly inspirational role model for the physically challenged as well as the able bodied. Everyone can gain inspiration from Scott and his book. He has a can do attitude and never gives up. I highly recommend reading this book!!!
