A Deadly Wandering book coverEight years ago, a 19-year-old University student did something that is against the law, but so many people do it anyway.

Reggie Shaw was texting and driving on a mountain pass in the America State of Utah when he swerved and hit another car, killing two people. He is now a campaigner, warning about the dangers of texting and driving.

New York Times journalist Matt Richtel tells the story of justice and forgiveness in his new book, A Deadly Wandering: A Tale of Tragedy and Redemption in the Age of Attention.
