The Darwin Awards 2 follows on from the hugely successful Darwin Awards: Evolution in Action which reached #1 on Amazon and #3 on The New York Times bestseller list. The Darwin Awards 2 contains disturbingly addictive and funny new stories which appeal to an international audience of fans of smart, knowing humour. You won't believe the absurd ways in which people have managed to maim or kill themselves thereby removing the particularly idiotic genes from the human gene pool and enhancing our chances of survival for the rest of the human race!

Author information

Wendy studied molecular biology at Berkeley, worked in a neuroscience research laboratory at Stanford, and later joined a biotech start-up developing treatments for cancer and diabetes. She wrote the Darwin Awards while waiting for her dastardly genetic manipulations to yield results. Eventually Wendy shrugged aside the labcoat in favour of an off-beat career. She now writes both code and prose for the Darwin Awards website. Much of her time is spent wishing she could catch up. In her free time, Wendy chases eclipses, dines, dances, and inhabits an increasingly eccentric wardrobe. Her interests include reading, cats, gardening, glass-blowing, natural dyework, fondling textiles, and observing human nature.
