Still reading, but will review anyway, (I'm cool like that.)

I LOVE this book. One of the things that struck me so thoroughly with "The Zombie Survival Guide" was the observation: "Man, this guy thought of EVERYTHING!" I had no idea how *everything* was left. The weapons, the cultures, the Political commentaries... suspending disbelief is a breeze. Brooks clearly has an understanding, cynical as it may be, of the way different people think, and respond to chaos. Even the Capitalist Basturd who makes millions from a bogus cure.

I'm getting near the end, humanity is starting to get their mojo back. The fact that the book starts after the War is over, clearly humanity pulls through, though not just by winning, but by thinking and dealing with the *actual threat* and not Politics, theories or wishful thinking. This is the only place my opinion of what would actually happen, differs from Brooks.
