George Rogers, a US military veteran, retired engineer, builder, and college professor of physics, drafting and design, and engineering who shares two sons, five grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren with his wife of sixty years, Jean, has completed his book “Thumb”: an inspiring and entertaining memoir of an adventurous live and impressive career.

George Rogers grew up destitute in Virginia with a loving family. He wanted to see the country, so he began to hitchhike to visit relatives or just travel to someplace he had never been and meet new people. His travels enhanced his high school education and made possible his college and NASA relationship. He worked numerous jobs in many fields and thumbed through his Army assignments. He was never more than a thumb away from anywhere he needed to go. His only regret was the fact that he was unable to share all the beautiful places and people he had encountered, but he found that college teaching gave him an opportunity to share many of the life skills he had learned and opened up a whole new world of exciting experiences. Assembling these stories into a single vignette seemed to be the most logical way to record the joys and sorrows of his life.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, George Rogers’s book is a fascinating memoir of an inspiring twentieth century success story.

Readers who wish to experience this autobiographical work can purchase “Thumb” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
