Darwin Awards are given to idiots who do things so boneheadly stupid that they remove themselves from the gene pool by killing themselves. This collection of true stories is so funny that you may find yourself close to earning a Darwin yourself if you listen while driving. This is due both to the clear prose in which Northcutt describes the events and to the way narrators Graybill, Lawlor, and Schaller deliver these stories. Each has a tongue-in-cheek delivery that allows the humor to shine through. Each pauses for effect when necessary, or simply when someone has done something so stupid as to stun the reader into silence. G.T.B.
