Funny! This book details many "lucky" winners who have won a Darwin Award for taking themselves out of the gene pool by their own stupidity. These people have been killed doing the most stupid and thoughtless things that you can imagine any human being doing. Even gives the sources of the information so you can get more info if you wish. Some of these made me laugh out loud to myself.

Hysterical. Great for anyone who has a decent sense of humor or may need a pick-me-up. Vol II and III are just as good.

Absolutely hysterical! I almost got into so many accidents from laughing so hard, so be careful when you listen to this one!

You've probably already heard of the phenomenon called the Darwin Awards, and perhaps you've even said you nearly deserved one if you caught yourself doing something egregiously stupid. Here's a whole collection!

One caution, however... DO NOT PUT THIS ON A SHELF IN THE BATHROOM FOR LIGHT READING. If you do so, some of your guests will spend interminable time on the throne, and stifled groans or howls of hysterical mirth will seep out into the rest of the house. This will make everyone else wonder, "What's he doing in there?"

From the dust jacket: Meet the absentminded terrorist who opens a mail bomb returned to him for insufficient postage. Marvel at the thief who steals electrical wires without shutting off the current. Gape at the would-be pilot who flies his lawn chair suspended from helium balloons into air-traffic lanes. And learn from the man who peers into a gasoline can using a cigarette lighter. All four contend for Darwin awards when their choices culminate in magnificent misadventures.

Small sized hard cover. Very amusing (or frightning!) stories of the stupid things people do.

short stories, many only a few paragraphs long that tell the true stories of how human stupidity has killed/harmed many a person in a darwinian fashion. it's very funny not gruesome at all.

A decent idea VERY POORLY executed. Tons of white space filler. No effort made to fact-check. A hazy mix of sensational news stories and urban legends. A too-breezy, bloggy style. A mean, almost sadistic tone. A total disappointment that I didn't even want to finish and didn't.
