David W. Ellis was a successful lawyer, but he was not happy. He wanted something else. In particular, he wanted to learn to work on cars. So in one big leap of faith, he quit his job and enrolled in technical school.
The other students, all of whom were decades younger than David, could tell he was different―he had money. This contrasted heavily with their own financial struggles as they studied to be auto techs.
And yet, they couldn’t anticipate the enthusiasm with which David would pursue his passion for learning how to work on cars. David became “a bro” and found kindred spirits among the 18- and 19-year-olds he took classes with.
David’s story is one of endearing motivation. He brings you along for the ride as he relentlessly pursues a year of technical school, sharing the experiences he has along the way:
Detour is David’s first non-legal book. It is an entertaining and sometimes humorous account of the daily classes, lab, and testing situations that David experienced. You’ll also meet his dedicated instructors and a group of motivated students who all share a common goal.
