Overview

The latest installment of the hilarious New York Times bestselling phenomenon-more than 1.5 million copies sold!

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.
