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—become 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 has a greater plan for his life, readers will be inspired. From his decision to participate in the Ironman competition, to the moment he crossed the finish line, readers will engage with Scott’s unthinkable courage, determination and faith. Unthinkable releases simultaneously in both hardcover and softcover. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Scott Rigsby Foundation, a Georgia-based non-profit organization dedicated to inspire, inform, and enable physically challenged individuals with loss of limb or mobility to live an active lifestyle.

From AudioFile:

Losing his legs after a 1986 crash was devastating for Scott Rigsby, but the loss also led to one of his greatest accomplishments: running on prosthetic legs in the Hawaii Ironman Triathlon. Jon Gauger doesn't sound like Rigsby--an author interview proves that--but he makes an engaging narrator as he tells Rigsby's story in two parts: his descent into a troubled life and, set on a new path by God, his preparations for the Ironman. Gauger lets Rigsby's frankness, wry humor, and eventual upbeat view of his experiences come through. Even listeners who will never run a triathlon will find inspiration in Rigsby's story. J.A.S.
