Internationally known as a World War II historian, Rigg’s newest book is in part a memoir where he shares his personal experience in turning his unique gifts to his advantage. He believes that if he could utilize the creativity, unique ways of looking at the world, zany humor, and high energy levels his ADHD/dyslexia have given him, others who live with the same conditions can too. It’s time to embrace the possibilities and end the stigma of learning disabilities. Rigg shares all of himself as he candidly describes his journey, including childhood mishaps and adventures, the struggle to learn and achieve, and his horrifying experience with sexual abuse. He provides solid researched scientific information showing why the gene for ADHD and LD exists, why it continues to be passed down even now, and how the trait affects children and adults throughout their lives. But what lies at the heart of the book is a vulnerable child who learned to use his differences to create successful and accomplished life.
