A Deadly Wandering, by Matt Richtel, published 2014
Distracted driving is as dangerous and common as drunk driving. This book by Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist Matt Richtel grippingly and educationally follows the story of one of the earliest cases of vehicular mayhem and wrongful death stemming from texting-while-driving. Moving from collision, to reckoning, to the inspiring efforts at redemption by Utah distracted-driver-turned-safety-crusader Reggie Shaw, Richtel reviews the basic science of why it’s such a terrible idea to use your cell in any form while also operating your motor vehicle.Highly recommended.
