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 Wih Steel Rods And Filled With Concrete, Is The Safest Barrier In Both Class 1 And Class 2 Outbreaks'; and much more. Filled with helpful illustrations and a sample 'Outbreak Journal' that should be kept on your person at all times, 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.'Read Less
You never know when the Zombie Apocalypse will occur but if you have this guide...you will be prepared for the worst! WAY killer book and an absolute must have for any Zombie genre fan. I would recommend this for a gift or to buy for one's self! Lots of reading and definitely not a skimpy book!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It offers detailed information on how to survive in a world threatened by the living dead. Sometimes it's obviously tongue-in-cheek, but mostly it comes across as serious, knowledgeable, and convincing. I recommend his novel, World War Z, as well.

If I wasn't convinced of an upcoming apocalypse before I sure as hell am now.
With this book I feel I've got all the knowledge I need in the case of a full on invasion
It has everything from choosing the proper weapon, your battle attire, what should be in your pack, and even strategies that would work way better than anything I've ever seen in the movies.
Yes, with Max's guidance and a little common sense you're sure make it out alive
