Reviews - What do customers think about Lessons From a Third Grade Dropout?
Quite An Education! May 6, 2007
I'm not a third grade dropout. As a matter of fact I have an undergraduate and a law degree and an additional degree from the School of Hard Knocks. However, NONE of the education I received compares to the valuable lessons Dr. Rick Rigsby learned from his father [...]. I am fortunate to have picked up this book and read what Rick has taken the time to pass along to the rest of us.
Read this book. Share it with your friends and family. Know that with each reading the world is being made a more special place to live. It is truly a book filled with life lessons that all should read and live by.
Amazing Oct 1, 2006
This book is amazing. The author shares the knowledge of his father and role models who propelled him in his life. He does not use gradure or fame to define who he is, but simply stated words. He is guided by his father and the lessons he learned from him.
I am blessed to have read this book. He spoke directly to my heart as he explains the loss of character, good judgement and accountability of this generation. He made me desire to stand firm in what I believe. He motivates me to reassess my character and attitude in my life.
Thank you Mr. Rigsby and a thank you to your father. May all you do be blessed.
