This book is a roadmap for those seeking to learn how to navigate times of adversity, build resiliency, and experience post-traumatic growth. A serious motorcycle accident in 2011 laid the foundation for this book. Detour looks at how to persevere, change, recover, forgive, and grieve after a traumatic event. It tells the story of Cam's journey as well as providing handles to hold on to for navigating your own detour. Whether you’re on a detour now, have been on one, know someone who is on one, or need to prepare for an upcoming detour, this book is for you. Building resiliency is a choice not an accident.
All of us experience detours in life, although Cam's is particularly notable and starkly serious. The book eloquently and thoroughly takes us on a journey of recovery with practical and meaningful guidance to re-set our lives. Cam capably relies on his own powerful insights, as well as ideas and quotes from notable people and sources. This gives the book an added dimension of interest and polish. I have known Cam to be a laser-focused coach and strategist, and I am deeply thankful that his recovery has progressed so extensively. Thanks you for sharing, Cam.
