Review of 'The Darwin Awards 3'

The Darwin Awards 3 by Wendy Northcutt

the_darwin_awards_3.jpg Another of Northcutts collection of Darwin Awards winners and nominees. This selection finds the normal assortment of tales about individuals who have benefited the gene pool by removing themselves from it (ie, they have died or caused themselves to not be able to reproduce…). Often tragic this is a light-hearted but fascinating series of half-page tales often verified but multiple sources as being true. Each chapter is introduced with a small article in some way related to the theme of the chapter which breaks up the book nicely. Included in this collection is a number of stories that have been rejected (and why). Another interesting collection.
