    • Zombie Survival Guide

      My husband is a horror movie fanatic and loves zombies so when he saw the interview with the author he wanted to read the book. I found it in ***ear or so ago and paid quiet a bit more then overstocks price. It was recently lost in our move so I searched for it again and found it here. It was a great buy, best price I found!! It took it about two weeks to get to us, but when it did it was in better shape then when I bought the one from ***.

    • (Moan) Braaains... and Booooks

      A must have for those who love zombie movies, games, and books. Brooks may not be George Romero, but he knows how to prepare for the zombie apocalypse. I only wished for a hard cover, but oh well...

    • Sons Loves it!

      My son does not enjoy reading, but he loves zombies and he loves this book! The book proved sturdy and well-binded. He is halfway through the book now, and this has truly promoted reading for him, in a weird way, but whatever works!

    • Good for any survival

      Bought it as a joke (because he loves playing "Call of Duty"), the Zombie section and he is also an avid hunter, so he said the book actually had alot of good information on surviving in the wilderness. So needless to say, he really enjoyed reading this book and said even though it had a lot of useful information, the sections on Zombies made it more fun to read.
