leave a comment »

I’d read this book long long time ago but I recently wanted something funny to read so I grabbed it again of the self. I ain’t going to post any review for this book since I think that the author succeeds in what he’s attempting to do…



Title: The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead
Author: Max Brooks

The Undead: Myths and Realities
This is an introductory chapter discussing general topics such as the source, symtoms, transference etc. of the virus, some zombies’ physical abilities etc.

Weapons and Combat Techniques
Here, the author identifies all of the weapons and techniques that could be used during zombie-human combat scenarios. To make it easier to follow, the weapons are separated in different sections like “Close Combat”, “Slings and Arrows”, “Firearms” etc.

On the Defense
Now, moving to the more practical chapters, herein you can read information about defense in private residence, public spaces as well as special “fortress” places like military complexes, prisons, oil rigs etc.

On the Run
Author provides knowledge for survival during movement in this chapter. This includes information for equipment, vehicles, terrain types and a couple of general rules that one should have in mind will moving from one place to another.

On the Attack
This is the other side of attacking instead of defending. Once again most of the aspects are covered including weapons and gear, transportation, strategies etc.

Living in an Undead World
Here you can find information useful for surviving in an undead world. Author gives some general advices and information for survival depending on the terrain type.

Recorded Attacks
Of course, this would be the last chapter. It contains more than 60 recorded attacks through the world ranging from 60,000 B.C. up to 2002 A.D.

To conclude, it’s definitely a very funny book for reading in spare time which I definitely recommend to people who want something to read without paying any particular attention.
