Unfortunately I have more (and stronger) negative comments than positive ones for this book. Firstly the negatives:

1) Despite its name, this manual isn't really about fighting zombies. It reads like it's written with human enemies in mind, with the text changed slightly to cash in on the recent popularity of zombies. For example, why is it necessary to camouflage your position from observation by aircraft? Zombies can't fly themselves or pilot aircraft. An explanation is given, but it's lame and

you know how it's said that an army is always fighting it's last war? yeah.... it's not at all like the zombie survival guide. this was basically a military manual that references zombies. it places more emphasis capture, secrecy (from zeds), intercepted transmissions, and other concepts that equate the zed with true cognizant enemy combatants. overall - it was dense, a slow read and lacked sufficient humor for being a zombie book. not terribly impressed...
