The Zombie Survival Guide

I saw this book at the store and thought it might be entertaining.

In the beginning of the book, there is a discussion about the solanum virus.  This alleged virus kills the human host, but allows minimal brain activity to remain.  The result is a reanimated corpse with only one desire, to eat living beings.

These reanimated corpses, aka zombies, have non-functioning circulatory and respiratory systems.  They have no need for rest, can live without food, and are oblivious to pain.  The only way to stop a zombie is to destroy the brain.

The book also covers topics regarding close combat with zombies, preferred weapons for killing zombies, finding a safe location for a hideout, required gear for long-term survival, and survival skills training.

The book ends with historical accounts of suspected zombie attacks.  It also discusses conspiracy theories concerning the suppression of information about these attacks.

The book was entertaining, but I don’t think I will ever read it again.
