I loved World War Z, awesome read, so i thought i would try some more of Max Brooks books... The Zombie Survival Guide-i found interesting until about half way where all he does is repeat himself in different situations although the premise is the same. I also found the book highly unrealistic as in equitment needed to survive.(seriously who has a shotgun, rifle, katana just lying around?) Although i did love some of the Zombie killing strategies, They seemed-again-highly unrelistic for normal civilian use, which the book was intended for. He also exagerated on the nature down falls of the modern world-the oil rig-and he also made the zombies seem a bit over powered. If there was a Zombie Apocaylypse, how do we know the Zombies need a head shot to die? it might as easily be the arm. This book would be a complete waste of time if there happened to be an outbreak. The only real threat would be the natural enviroment-animals which he dosent dealve as much into. I think Max Brooks is a great writer but i think he was meant to write happenings of the Zombie Apocaylype instead of how to survive it.

This is a great read! while the information it provides may never come to use, it's very entertaining. it's a plain and simple guide that's well written and fun. i would recommend it to teens with an interest in zombies and/or fictional books.I like this style of writing. my only criticism is in the parts where it somewhat leaves the fictional feel by suggesting that it may have actually happened. overall I give a 4.5.

this is a very good book! be ready for the apocolapse!

Be prepared or would you rather be shocked when the zombie apocalypse comes? Think about it.

Clueless on how to handle the unending war between humanity and the undead? Here's what I recommend:

1. Play Resident Evil (as many games in the series as you can).

2. See all the Resident Evil movies.

3. See 1 and 2. Yes, repeat. Often.

4. Read this book.

It's just that simple.

After I read this book I signed up for a self defense class, I take shooting lessons at a shooting range, and I continue to jog every morning so I can stay in shape for when they come... I will survive.
