Summary
From Pulitzer Prizewinning journalist Matt Richtel, a brilliant, narrative-driven exploration of technologys vast influence on the human mind and society, dramatically-told through the lens of a tragic texting-while-driving car crash that claimed the lives of two rocket scientists in 2006. In this ambitious, compelling, and beautifully written book, Matt Richtel, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for the New York Times, examines the impact of technology on our lives through the story of Utah college student Reggie Shaw, who killed two scientists while texting and driving. Richtel follows Reggie through the tragedy, the police investigation, his prosecution, and ultimately, his redemption. In the wake of his experience, Reggie has become a leading advocate against distracted driving. Richtel interweaves Reggies story with cutting-edge scientific findings regarding human attention and the impact of technology on our brains, proposing solid, practical, and actionable solutions to help manage this crisis individually and as a society. A propulsive read filled with fascinating, accessible detail, riveting narrative tension, and emotional depth, A Deadly Wandering explores one of the biggest questions of our timewhat is all of our technology doing to us?and provides unsettling and important answers and information we all need
