Publisher's Summary

Drawing from reams of historical data, laboratory experiments, field research, and eyewitness accounts, this comprehensive 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 with Steel Rods and Filled with Concrete, Is the Safest Barrier in Both Class 1 and Class 2 Outbreaks'; and much more.
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."

Zombie guide repeats

If you could sum up The Zombie Survival Guide in three words, what would they be?

Could it happen?

Would you recommend The Zombie Survival Guide to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes. The "documented cases" at the end is the best part.

Which character – as performed by Stephen Hogan – was your favorite?

His reading is very good.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

When you need to run from walkers.

Any additional comments?

Although I enjoyed this book I found parts of it repetitive. Throughout the novel the author says things such as... "As previously discussed earlier..." Still... It's a fun ride.
