“As “instructive social parable,” A Deadly Wandering “deserves a spot next to ‘Fast Food Nation’ and ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ in America’s high school curriculums. To say it may save lives is self-evident.” – New York Times Review of Books (And honored as an “Editor’s Choice.”)

“Keen and elegantly raw – like a tooth-crackingly crisp photograph that bleeds at the edges – (the) story surrounding this disaster is not just a morality tale about texting and driving, but also a probe sent into the world of technology, examining the way it is outstripping our capability to keep up with it, and how we as a culture are feeding bullets into the techno-gun and playing with it.” –  Christian Science Monitor Review (Selected as a best book of the Month)

“A masterful work of narrative non-fiction”  – Amazon, best of September, 2014

IndieNext pick for October, 2014, called in the nomination “one of of the most important books of our time.”

“A compelling, highly emotional and profoundly important story.”  – Kirkus (starred review)

“Moving and essential.”  – Christian Science Monitor, top 10 pick for September, 2014
