The Darwin Awards II: Unnatural Selection

by Wendy Northcutt

New York Times bestseller in hardcover and paperback

The Darwin Awards II: Unnatural Selection brings together a fresh collection of the hapless, the heedless and the just plain foolhardy among us. Salute the owner of an equipment training school who demonstrates the dangers of driving a forklift by failing to survive the filming of his own safety video. Gawk at the couple who go to sleep on a sloping roof. Witness the shepherd who leaves his rifle unsecured - only to be accidentally shot by one of his own flock.

With over 100 Darwin Award Winners, Honorable Mentions, and debunked Urban Legends, plus science and safety tips for avoiding the scythe of natural selection, The Darwin Awards II proves once again how uncommon common sense can be.
