The Darwin Awards 4: Next Evolution 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.

AudioFile Magazine
"The fourth in a series of such books by the author, this seamless abridgment reports the antics of real individuals who have acted so stupidly that they sometimes die, thus removing themselves from the reproductive chain. Starting a paper fire under a car engine that is too cold to start, snowmobiling across water, blowing up outhouses, idiotic gun mishaps--these true stories are sometimes funny, sometimes sad. They are told alternately by the two narrators, whose pacing and phrasing serve the material well."

Buzzy Reviews (
"This was loads of fun... in a rather sick way, but fun nonetheless."
