This is an interesting book. It’s written from the perspective of a human resources director that must deal with the zombie apocalypse.
It gives advice on how to handle an employee that has become a zombie and what paperwork the supervisor is required to complete.
It explains how business can remain profitable during the zombie apocalypse by changing its business model and developing innovative weapons for the living consumers. There is also a section on how to get money from zombies, without risking self injury.
I enjoyed reading this book and found it to be humorous.
That’s a perfect name for a landscaping business. I love it.
The author teaches readers how to say, “No” with grace and respect by using the EDC method.
- Empathize – let the other person know you understand where they are coming from
- Describe – describe the situation from your experience in an objective and rational manner

This is an excellent book and I highly recommend it.
Here are a few of the tips I learned from this eBook.
- Being clutter free means everything has a place and everything is in its place.
- Everything should have a purpose (functional or emotional).
- If it doesn’t have a purpose, it is clutter.
- If you buy a new item, you should get rid on one like item to prevent clutter from growing.
- Make de-cluttering fun by listening to music, watching TV, or getting someone to help you.
- Make your organizational system user friendly.
- Consolidate like items into one area.
Eric Michael tells readers how to make extra money in his book, Almost Free Money. I admit being skeptical about his claims. However, he did have a few unique and interesting ideas.
Since it is available for free on Amazon, I would recommend it. You might find new ways to boast your income.
