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.
