Publisher's Summary

The Darwin Awards commemorate those who improve our gene pool by removing themselves from it, showing us just how uncommon common sense can be. Marvel at the thief who steals electrical wires before shutting off the current. Gape at the would-be-pilot who flies his lawnchair suspended from helium balloons into air-traffic lanes. And learn from the man who peers into a gasoline can using a cigarette lighter. These tales of trial and awe-inspiring error illustrate the ongoing saga of survival of the fittest in all its selective glory!


What the Critics Say

"The Darwin Awards is a riot to read. Deeply entertaining." (San Francisco Weekly)
"Delightfully funny...taken together they constitute a delicious sermon in support of common sense." (The Baltimore Sun)

Funny Stuff

Would you listen to The Darwin Awards again? Why?

When a book can make you drive and just shake your head at the stupidity of people, then it is worth a second, or in my case, third listen.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Nope, I listen to my audio books in the car when driving. Then next best thing, though, is I found myself turning on and making sure my kindle was plugged up before I even bucked up.

Any additional comments?

This book made me feel so much better about myself and my IQ.
