About the author

This book is not written by some baby-faced 24-year-old millennial who made his first million dollars writing a self-help book. David grew up the ultimate fringe-dweller.

His father was an itinerant gospel preacher, moving from town to town. David was a constant target of beatings, at home and at school. For the first 37 years of his life, he was trapped in a cultural backwater, treading water. But then his life took a dramatic turn when he attended a meeting to discuss a road widening through his community. Three years later he was travelling the world as some kind of guru on urban design and transportation.

He went on to create a number of social innovations including the Walking School Bus. Twenty-five years later, he created the 7 Day Makeover, a program that enables communities to renovate a dysfunctional public space, from planning to completion, in just seven days. This agile approach has resulted in towns totally transforming themselves. Project for Public Spaces in New York describe him as ‘one of the world’s most inventive thinkers on creating vibrant public spaces.’

Over the years, David has worked with thousands of good-hearted individuals, dedicated to making the world a better place, but who feel powerless to create the change they desire. He decided to turn his attention from helping communities makeover public spaces to helping individuals makeover their lives.

David counts his lack of education and his dysfunctional childhood as his greatest assets and as the key to his creativity. He has built an extraordinary life for himself.
