    This book is fun to read about how some people died by doing stupid stunts or not thinking of the consequences before doing something.

    Death by Misadventure

    Good reading if you have a bit of a macabre sense of him our. I liked the fact that all the stories are referenced giving them a sense of authenticity rather than ™urban myths™. Enjoyable if you can laugh at man's own stupidity.

    Dumb Ways to Die

    An interesting collection of tales about people varying from the unlucky and over-confident to the simply stupid (some are born that way while others drink to achieve that state!). There are lessons in this book about what not to do to stay alive and also lessons about how not to use punctuation
