5.0 out of 5 stars fatal error
This book is a must read for every driver in the country. I found it really hit home about how easy it is to kill someone in a traffic accident by being distracted for as little as 2 seconds.

Being the girl sat on the embankment hugging her dog.... I found this book rather hard to stomach.
There are elements of it which feel as if the writer IS seeking sympathy, I do feel it could be helpful in asisting in the reduction of distraction accidents, although having served 45 days in prison is not all that much of a deterrant for killing 3.5 peopele.

This book is a must read for every driver in the country. I found it really hit home about how easy it is to kill someone in a traffic accident by being distracted for as little as 2 seconds. The book isn't written trying to get a sympathy vote, but to show people that this could be them. It's basically about a man who reaches for his jacket whilst driving and as a result loses control of his car which results in 3 people getting killed. It really makes you think about all the times you've not paid full attention to the road whilst driving, and how easy it could be for you to be in prison instead of him.

This review is from: Fatal Error: Confessions of an Accidental Killer (Paperback)
This book really touched me as my own husband was in the same situation involved in a fatal car accident which he was also sent to prison but no sentence can take away that feeling every day that someone has died and a family has lost their loved one but we also feel part of the pain too and it just goes to show it could happen to anyone.

This review is from: Fatal Error: Confessions of an Accidental Killer (Paperback)
This is a good biographical account of a person who caused an accident which killed someone. There is a lot of feeling put into this book especially about becoming a 'criminal' for the first time. There are very few books that tackle this subject from the perpetrators side. However, there is much in the chapters which cover the author's angst about the terminology and the law relating to this type of offence. But it is absorbing and holds the reader to the end.
