Overview

Over 1.5 million copies sold in this New York Times bestselling humor series

The Darwin Awards series is the alpha chimp of humorous human mishaps. Despite being an international bestseller and inspiring the movie The Darwin Awards, these hilarious, cautionary chronicles have failed to stop another generation of Darwin Award winners from steering motorcycles with their feet, heating lava lamps on stoves, using liquid soap as brake fluid, and drowning themselves in the kitchen sink.

Filled with more than 100 new tales of evolution in action, plus science essays and a parody research paper supporting Intelligent Design, The Darwin Awards 4 shows that when it comes to common sense, natural selection still has a long, long way to go.

Editorial Reviews

The first Darwin Awards book in three years proves that the steep climb up the evolutionary ladder has been more difficult for some than others. Like its predecessors, this mind-boggling numbers honors those hapless souls who have improved our gene pool by weeding themselves out of existence. The Darwin Awards 4 contains more than 100 astonishing yet true tales of involuntary self-immolators. These posthumous honorees include a homeowner who terminated termites (and himself) by filling his home with natural gas and a handyman who attempted to weld together a chain and a hand grenade. Explosive fun.
