A Deadly Wandering:A Tale of Tragedy and Redemption in the Age of Attention

Matt Richtel

In this compelling and beautifully written book, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter Matt Richtel (Devil's Plaything, 2011) examines the impact of technology and distraction on our lives through the true story of Reggie Shaw, a Utah college student who killed two rocket scientists while texting and driving in 2006. Richtel follows Reggie through the tragedy, the police investigation, the prosecution, and ultimately, his redemption. “An extraordinarily important book that everyone—and I mean everyone—should read,” writes Douglas Preston.
