Book Description

Sept. 13 2011
The most comprehensive zombie handbook ever published—with a foreword by Max Brooks! In one indispensable volume, Matt Mogk busts popular myths and answers all your raging questions about the living dead.*

Q. How can I increase my chances of survival?

A. One simple step is to keep away from other people. Without people there can be no zombies.

Q. What is the connection between the Voodoo zombie and the flesh-eating zombie of popular culture?

A. Other than a shared name, absolutely nothing.

Q. Will zombies actually eat me, or will they just bite and chew?

A. Research suggests the neuromuscular activity required for swallowing may be too complex for a zombie.

Q. Will we see any warning signs before the dead rise?

A. Unfortunately, entire populations could be infected with the zombie sickness before anyone even knows there’s a problem.

Q. How come Zombie Awareness Month is in May and not October?

A. Unlike witches and vampires, zombies are not otherworldly creatures. They are made of flesh and blood. Don’t forget to wear your gray ribbon.

* Many more questions about zombies—including why not all of them are undead—are answered inside the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really entertaining Dec 12 2011
I found this book at a friend's place and - with nothing else to read - gave it a try. Right from the start, I was totally hooked! I had no prior interest in zombies, or anything supernatural, but found Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Zombies to be weirdly addictive.

It's well-written, funny and packed with information. I'm hoping that Mogk will write a follow-up. Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Ghosts would be my vote.

This would be a great gift for someone with an interest in zombies, vampires, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars My husband and I can't put this book down! Oct. 4 2011
By D. Brenner - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this as a birthday gift for my husband and he has hardly put it down since he opened the package. He has always been interested in zombies and since this book was just published I figured he hadn't read it yet. He's totally into it and now has me reading it, too (when I can steal it from him)! First of all, this book has really does live up to it's title - it has EVERYTHING you would ever want to know about zombies. We are now armed with all available knowledge on zombie history, their biological make-up, and how to survive an attack which as parents we appreciate because we have two small children. Also, the author has studied zombie film history in depth and gives fascinating analyses of these films. Lastly, it is fun and interesting to read which is important to me in a non-fiction book. An easy five stars for this book and a must-read for all parents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mogk is a true prophet in the (after)world of zombies. Oct. 6 2011
By Bobby B (TT) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If the zombie craze is an allegory for the countdown to Armageddon, then Matt Mogk is our modern day Noah. Buy this book in pairs and start building your ark. The illustrations are impeccable. The structure is imminently readable. And the substance may save your life -- or better yet, allow you to keep living while dead!

5.0 out of 5 stars LIVE THROUGH THE ZOMBIE-POCALYPSE! Sept. 28 2011
By Lauren S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is essential reading if you want to be one of the lucky ones to survive when zombies take over the earth.

It's funny, factual, and contains helpful tips such as how to evaluate your own city's "Outbreak Survivability" and how to "stay positive" in a zombie survival situation. Matt Mogk is a historian, a humanitarian and a we owe him a debt of gratitude for this amazing work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nerd Erection Jan. 5 2012
By Josh Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a love letter to the zombie genre.

If you know nothing about zombies then Matt will get you up to speed and probably make a fanboy out of you.

If your already a fan of zombies, then look foward to a great read with plenty of interesting facts about survival, zombie movies, culture, games, and zombies in general. Plenty of quotes and citations also give this book a great sense of authenticity. Also, this is NOT a rip-off of "The Zombie Survival Guide" (another awesome book btw).

Now I understand that there have been a lot of zombie themed books out as of late since Max Brooks kicked off the zombie book craze, some of which are great while others were clearly just put forth to make money. "Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Zombies" thankfully does not fall into the latter category.

Matt Mogk definitely put a huge deal of love and effort into his book and is probably the biggest zombie fanboy I have ever seen, which is a good thing.

It's an easy read, plenty of facts for even the most jaded undead fan, and you will definitely be sad once the last page has been turned.

If your a zombie fan, you do a disservice to the genre by not reading this book.

Great buy, 110% satisfied.

3.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly Repetitive, BUT fun at times Sept. 27 2012
By Pinky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is certainly different. If you're a fan of zombie movies (or monster movies in general) you will probably get a kick out of this book. I am proudly one of those fans, but I found myself getting bored and skipping from paragraph to paragraph every now and then. It's as if the author's publisher trapped him within a set amount of pages to write. While fun at times, I found it to be incredibly repetitive.
