REVIEW: A Deadly Wandering sheds light on why we text and drive knowing it kills – Matt Richtel’s book, A Deadly Wandering, is part human tragedy, part fascinating neurological exploration.
CBC News (WINNIPEG, MANITOBA)
…with Shaw’s story (about how a 19 year old killed two rocket scientists while texting and driving) as a hook, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Matt Richtel asks why we text and drive when we know it kills.
Richtel's book, A Deadly Wandering, is part human tragedy, part fascinating neurological exploration.
Richtel’s intensely intimate writing is also conversational. He digs deep into the personal motivation of everyone involved in Shaw’s case — his family, the police, the widows of those two rocket scientists, the lawyers and an incredibly dedicated victim’s advocate.
