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!!!
