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

Didn’t get that summer read in like you wanted to? It’s not too late. We have a great recommendation, “A Deadly Wandering,” written by author and New York Times reporter, Matt Richtel, whose book takes readers through a story about a teenage boy driving and texting his girlfriend in September 2006 on a Utah highway. He ends up crossing the line while driving and texting, and kills 2 rocket scientists in a horrific auto accident.

Only a couple of states had texting and driving laws at the time, and Utah wasn’t one of them — law enforcement didn’t know how quite to proceed. As reported by the Deseret News, “Matt Richtel put all of the above together in his book, deftly weaving the personalities involved to tell a story with a remarkable human touch — and nailing the Utah culture like a modern-day Wallace Stegner. He also adds compelling scientific evidence to the mix. Texting and driving, his research shows, is at least twice as dangerous as driving drunk.”
