Publisher's Summary

*USA Today and Wall Street Journal best seller*

Be inspired by the book behind the graduation speech by Dr. Rick Rigsby's– now with 100+ million views on Facebook and YouTube.

After his wife died, Rick Rigsby was ready to give up. The bare minimum was good enough. Rigsby was content to go through the motions, living out his life as a shell of himself. But then he remembered the lessons his father taught him years before - something insanely simple, yet incredibly profound.

These lessons weren't in advanced mathematics or the secrets of the stock market. They were quite straightforward, in fact, for Rigsby's father never made it through third grade. But if this uneducated man's instructions were powerful enough to produce a Ph.D. and a judge – imagine what they can do for you.

Join Rigsby as he dusts off time-tested beliefs and finds brilliantly simple answers to modern society's questions. In a magnificent testament to the "Greatest Generation" which gave so much and asked so little in return, Lessons from a Third Grade Dropout will challenge you while reigniting your passion to lead a truly fulfilling life.

After all, it's never too late to learn a little bit more about life – just ask the third-grade dropout.

    "A message stretch out"

    Although I like the messages delivered in this audiobook, I could have been told in half the time. The author goes on and on before getting to the next advise. I did put in 4 stars in performance, but that is not for a good delivery of the message, but that his voice is pleasant to listen to. I do not recommend this book. Too little take away, and although the audio is on the short side, it should have been a lot shorter.

    "Time to reflect and learn"

    Reflection that our generation has to make and learn from the previous generation.

    We have forgotten the allegiance with discipline and have instead embraced convenience.

    Fathers not only teach us, but the make us men in the process. I thank God for your father as the things he taught you, my father also taught. We all need a reminder ever so often. God Bless!

    "excellent"

    This is the first audible book I listened to in it entirety without a break. I first heard Dr.Rigsby speaking to college grads on FB. His father was amazing. I will incorporate his mentality into my life and share it with my son.

    "Great story "

    Great story and great life lessons. The only way to experience this book is by listening. With the author’s narration it’s unbelievable. I’ve had the privilege of hearing him speak in person and the book made me feel like I was right back in the crowd.

    "great info, but not efficiently told"

    the overall messages in this book are timeless and accurate, but the author insists on giving 6 or more examples , when two or three is all that is necessary. Terrific message, but not efficient, and as a result, somewhat ineffective in the delivery. His father and he appear to be great men, but their storytelling need some additional work.

    "Amazing Work"

    Amazing story and perspective to apply to one’s one life. Thank you for sharing your story and your wisdom with the world.

    I had the honor of listening to you and watching you speak in Bismarck, ND this past fall 2017. It was impactful!

    I’m so glad that you turned your book into an audio book. I couldn’t wait to hear your booming voice, to tell your own story. The only constructive feedback I have for you would be to read your story more slowly to let your messages really sink in. The last 30 minutes of your book, you did slow it down which was great. Thank you again for sharing your amazing life and precious gifts with us.
