I'm ready for the Zombie invasion ( )
  jimifenway | Feb 2, 2016 |
First off I'll just say this, this book is not what you probably expected it to be. You probably expected it to be sort of like the movie Zombie-land by Ruben Fleischer, were you have a story and along the way the give you a bunch of tips, but no. This book is just a book with good survival tips. That isn't exactly a bad thing. The book does teach you a lot of things like how to find food in a forest, and also very useful medical tips that would be useful at anytime.The book has certain specialized chapters where it teaches you about the chapter topic, like what vehicle to use. This book also has some stories in the back of supposed "zombie outbreaks" that have happened from sometime A.D. to the recent past.

This book is surprisingly really good. The book has very nice details. The book was also made by Max Brooks who made World War Z which is already a great book. The book is a weird thing to just read through like a normal book because it explains different topics that some of the time have nothing to do with the next. The book does have long stories in the back and those are very interesting, they made me interested in the topic even more than I already was. The stories are very fascinating and I wanted to see if they were true. Also the book teaches you a lot of things that could be useful outside of a zombie apocalypse. Overall this book does teach you very useful tips about guns and what to do in a survival situation so I think it gets 4 stars> ( )

The "Zombie Survival Guide" is the key to being prepared for the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse. Ignore its words of wisdom at your own peril! If you want to learn how to spot the signs of an upcoming zombie infestation (because you know the governments of the worlds are only going to cover it up until it is too late!), what to prepare a head of time, how to survive in the Zombie Ruled World and how to thrive long enough to out live the undead menace in order to repopulate the world with humans, then READ THIS BOOK! Max Brooks will be revered as a prophet in the future World of the Zombie.

Don't say your weren't warned.......or given adequate preparation.....

(In all seriousness, this book is a great deal of serious fun! Also, if you replace the word "zombie" with any other type of biological contagion, it could easily function as a survival guide for surviving, thriving and eventually rebuilding after a pandemic. Something which we all know is coming eventually and which the governments will be totally unprepared for, so get on the stick you all!) ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 071563318X, Paperback)

Drawing from reams of historical data, laboratory experiments, field research, and eyewitness accounts, this comprehensive and illustrated guide is the only book you'll need to face the greatest challenge mankind has ever encountered. Granted, you probably already know that skills such as wilderness survival, leadership, and basic first aid are important when fighting off hordes of the undead. But The Zombie Survival Guide doesn't stop there, teaching you how to: Identify cases of infection by the zombie virus, Solanum, and recognize the hourly progression of symptoms: 'Hour 8: Numbing Of Extremities And Infected Area, Increased Fever [103-106 Degrees], Increased Dementia, Loss Of Muscular Coordination'; choose the right weapon: 'A Section Of Lead Pipe Will Work For A Single Encounter But Is Too Heavy For Those On The Move'; defend your home: 'A Ten-Foot Cinder-Block Wall, Reinforced Wih Steel Rods And Filled With Concrete, Is The Safest Barrier In Both Class 1 And Class 2 Outbreaks'; and much more. Filled with helpful illustrations and a sample 'Outbreak Journal' that should be kept on your person at all times, The Zombie Survival Guide is the only guide you will need to survive a most certain pandemic. 'Ignorance is the undead's strongest ally, knowledge their deadliest enemy,' Brooks writes. 'Personal choice, the will to live, must be paramount when the dead begin to rise. The choice is up to you.'
