Letter-perfect satire never winks, never nudges, never budges from its mission: document the physiology of zombies, weapons and techniques for stopping zombies for good, provide strategic considerations for defense-or-flight decisions, suggest how one might survive in a zombie-conquered world, and finally to list every documented historical appearance of zombies. As I read, I had the disturbing notion that Dwight Schrute, the beet-farm survivalist and paper salesman from "The Office" TV show, has …

I have always been a huge fan of monsters and all themes Horror related.  It is because of this that my jaw dropped the first time I ran across "The Zombie Survival Guide" by Max Brooks. Needless to say I purchased this book the moment I laid eyes on it. Max Brooks is a scary man just for the fact that he must spend all day thinking about Zombies.  After reading this book I am certain that he is the leading expert for the entire world in all zombie related material.    …

Pros: Excellent, well thought out guide      Cons: wish that it had color pictures.      The Bottom Line: This is an excellent reference for those of you that wish to be prepared against a zombie attack, very thorough.      If nothing else, I am truly know for the unique, random junk that I find both on the internet and in my wanderings in life. I am always looking for products that are quite a bit different than the norm and those are …

Max Brooks has been to the "Zombie" fan's world what Tolkien may be considered to the fantasy-lover's; his two works, 2003's "The Zombie Survival Guide" and 2006's "World War Z" have both been met with widespread acclaim from critics and fans alike.  In "The Zombie Survival Guide", Brooks uses what must be considered astute knowledge of the Zombie-Horror film genre to create a step-by-step preparation manual for any type of zombie apocalypse. Within are included tips on what supplies to gather, …

Should zombies ever rise, I know I will now be prepared! Anyone with any question of that would do good to purchase this book. It really has everything you could think of in case of a zombie uprising; shelter, food, weapons, transportation. Even though this is fictional, it reads like an actual how-to, making it that much more interesting. I'd highly recommend World War Z, too.
