If you have read any of the survival manuals that were produced during the 80s then you will know what to expect from this book. It is written in a very convincing manner and covers a lot of ground. It opens with showing how to spot different categories of zombie outbreak, and then goes on to discuss how to protect yourself by choosing the correct weapons and how to do and not do things such as travel and choose a safe location. At the end is a section on various zombie outbreaks throughout history.

I know many people will think of this book as a joke, and lets be honest it is a work of total fiction but it does not read as a work of humour, but as a totally serious piece of work. This is its greatest strength. And anyway, just in case there is a zombie outbreak it would definitely be worth while to have read up on what to do...
