An ordinary Utah college student named Reggie Shaw
fatally strikes two rocket scientists while texting and driving. Pulitzer Prize–winning
New York Times reporter Matt Richtel
follows Reggie from the moment of the tragedy, through the police
investigation, the state’s groundbreaking prosecution, and, ultimately,
Reggie’s wrenching admission of responsibility. Richtel parallels Reggie’s
journey with leading-edge scientific findings regarding human attention and the
impact of technology on our brains.
Remarkably, today Reggie is a leading advocate who
has helped spark a national effort targeting distracted driving, and the arc of
his story provides a window through which Richtel pursues actionable solutions
to help manage this crisis individually and as a society. A propulsive listen
filled with fascinating scientific detail, riveting narrative tension, and rare
emotional depth, A Deadly Wandering
is an audiobook that can change—and save—lives. Download and start listening now!
