A third helping of satisfies the appetite of fans of smart humor with a fresh collection of stories honoring those who continue to improve our gene pool by removing themselves from it in a sublimely idiotic fashion!
Included are over one hundred stories of award-winners, honorable mentions, and (debunked) urban legends-verified by the author and endorsed by website readers-together with a few returning all-time favorites, and exclusive material never before seen, including special science and safety tips for readers on how to avoid the scythe of natural selection!
Appealing to Darwin Awards fans old and new, The Darwin Awards III is a must-have humor audiobook, illustrating the ongoing saga of survival of the fittest in all its selective glory!
The author has appeared in USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, The (NY) Daily News, Boston Herald, Publisher Weekly, BookPage and CNN.com.
The Darwin Awards III contains tales of misadventure. It is intended to be viewed as a safety manual, not a how-to-guide. The stories illustrate evolution working through natural selection: Those whose actions have lethal personal consequences are weeded out of the gene pool. Your decisions can kill you, so pay attention and stay alive.

"A second volume continues the author's delightfully sadistic celebration of those who have 'improved our gene pool by removing themselves from it in a sublimely idiotic fashion.' We hear true stories and 'urban legends' about people who have perished unintentionally through their own profoundly stupid actions. The writing is light and witty; the narrator's delivery chirpy and reminiscent of a tabloid TV voice-over."
"One of the drawbacks to not teaching the theory of evolution in schools is that some people wind up learning the stuff the hard way--Darwin-worthy departures are sent in from people all over the world. One lesson is that fatal stupidity knows no boundaries."
