The Zombie Survival Guide 1st Editionby Max Brooks
Synopses & Reviews
The Zombie Survival Guide is your key to survival against the hordes of undead who may be stalking you right now. Fully illustrated and exhaustively comprehensive, this book covers everything you need to know, including how to understand zombie physiology and behavior, the most effective defense tactics and weaponry, ways to outfit your home for a long siege, and how to survive and adapt in any territory or terrain.
In the tradition of Bored of the Rings, O.J.'s Legal Pad, and The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook, this book is a dead-on parody of wilderness and survival manuals like the SAS guides that sell millions of copies, and it will appeal as much to readers of The Onion as it will to fans of science fiction novels and horror films. Max Brooks captures the tone of these publications with perfect pitch, lacing his life-or-death advice with sarcastic, ironic, and very funny comments about the relentless power and persistence of zombies and the vulnerability of ordinary humans.
"Some of the book's more amusing aspects are the laughable analyses Brooks proposes on all aspects of zombiehood, and the specificity with which he enumerates the necessary actions for survival." Publishers Weekly
Fully illustrated and exhaustively comprehensive, "The Zombie Survival Guide"is one's key to survival against the hordes of undead who may be stalking thestreets right now.
