Product Details


Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In this outrageous parody of a survival guide, Saturday Night Live staff writer Brooks prepares humanity for its eventual battle with zombies. One would expect the son of Mel Brooks to have a genetic predisposition to humor, and indeed, he does, and he exhibits it relentlessly here: he outlines virtually every possible zombie-human encounter, drafts detailed plans for defense and attack and outlines past recorded attacks dating from 60,000 B.C. to 2002. In planning for that catastrophic day when "the dead rise," Brooks urges readers to get to know themselves, their bodies, their weaponry, their surroundings and, just in case, their escape routes. 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-i.e., a member of an anti-zombie team must be sure to have with him at all times two emergency flares, a signaling mirror, daily rations, a personal mess kit and two pairs of socks. Comic, though unnecessarily exhaustive, this is a good bet for Halloween gag gifts and fans of Bored of the Rings-esque humor. 100 line drawings.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive scholarly compilation on zombology April 23 2004
Format:Paperback
Finally, a man who understands the all-too-real threat of the living dead and who posesses the eloquence to present it convincingly! Max Brooks has produced a small wonder of a book in the Zombie Survival Guide, a book which provides the average American reader (through hands-on experience, published scientific research and historical accounts) with a comprehensive guide to surviving multiple levels of zombie infestation. Stripping away popular zombie myths, Brooks cuts through the morass of media misinformation with a book based firmly in the terrible reality of the undead. Easy-to-follow chapters on recommended weaponry, small-unit tactics and defensive fortification provide an easy entrance into the frightening world of the undead for the novice zombologist, while seasoned veterans will appreciate the elaborate instructions on how to survive the dreaded "Class 4" infestation. With a balanced mix of the practical, the historical and the scientific, this book has something for everyone. If you buy only one book on zombology, make it this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Simplistic June 11 2009
Format:Paperback
This was a rather entertaining read, as I suspect it was intended. I have no illusions that the Zombie threat and his examples of infestations are fiction. But his information as to what is needed to survive and how to survive are incredibly simplistic. Examples of what to do never provide detailed advice or methodology to follow. Items needed for survival are simplistically described. Again, a fun book to read but would it have been better served with more detail as this, indirectly, could also have served as a guide to survival for a more realistic emergency. Like alien invasion!

4.0 out of 5 stars entertaining read May 14 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am only half way through reading this book! I am really enjoying it! I find myself laughing at times at the book but I would definitely not categorize this book as a humor book ! The author really took the time to showcase what the world would be like if there were zombies! And the do's and don't! Some of the information provided may serve as a survival guide for other situations!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best protection against zombies March 11 2014
By Steven
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this book a number of years ago and since then have wanted a copy for myself.
I decided to get it now because I saw it was on sale and I was able to get free shipping.

The book is a fun read, covering background information, weapons, and how to behave in different situations; on the defence, on the attack, and on the run, as well as how to survive in a completely zombie infested world.

Very Informative.
