Product Description

New York Times bestselling author Wendy Northcutt is back, asking, "Have we evolved at all?" The answer: Not all of us. - What crazy cocktail of DNA leads Homo sapiens to do pull-ups off the edge of a seventh-floor balcony or wrap their lips around a paintball gun and pull the trigger? How about offering a beer to a bear or self-testing a Taser? Why not go joyriding in a shopping cart strapped to an SUV or jump a drawbridge on a bicycle? Fully illustrated with over a hundred new jaw-dropping and side-splitting feats of stupidity-and including science essays by guest writers and answers to FAQs about evolution in action-The Darwin Awards Next Evolution continues the tradition of honoring the victims of appallingly poor survival instinct who selflessly improve our gene pool by removing themselves from it.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mr. H. Prain on 15 Feb. 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A fun read but contains a large amount of padding (also amusing) consisting of non-confimed stories, non fatal (and hence non Darwinian?) stories and comments. It's amazing what stupid things people can do - but perhaps it takes a lot of practise to get that dumb?

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Michael J. Atkins on 17 April 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Darwin awards started out fresh. Now into their Nth year, this book was heavily padded with explanatory text. Not worth buying. Borrow one and read in 30 mins if you need to and skip the padding.
