You need this book if you want to survive,
This review is from: Zombie Survival Manual: The complete guide to surviving a zombie attack (Owners Apocalypse Manual) (Hardcover)
Zombies can't live with them, can't kill them all. So what's a man going to do when faced with the hordes of the undead. That's the question that Sean Page hopes to answer in his new how to guide for surviving the apocalypse.
Those of you reading this blog of a certain age will be looking at the cover of this book and wondering "isn't that one of those how to fix your car books that were once the mainstay of dining tables?" Yes you would be correct in thinking that. Sean Page has had a genius masterstroke of an idea. What could have turned out to be an unfunny gimmick, is used to great effect to deliver a wealth of knowledge to the reader.
Broken down into chapters such as Types of Zombie, Zombies In History, Becoming a Zombie Survivalist, and Zombie Combat and Weapons, Sean Page takes us on a fascinating, journey of learning that hopes to teach you everything that you need to know to survive.
Lets be clear here folks this book is amazing, the depth and wealth of knowledge held within these pages is vast. It is clear that from page one this has been a labour of love for Sean. I would hate to think just how long he has spent researching the book. Each page oozes class, with comprehensive guides beautifully illustrated with diagrams, illustrations, pie charts and tables. A particular favourite of mine is the illustrated Three Step Procedure on how to take down a zombie with a baseball bat.
What makes this book special besides the level of research and production values is the sense of fun that leaps of each page. This book could easily have been a bit on the dry side like dessicated zombies skin, however Sean's love of the genre clearly shines through giving the book a great fun filled feel to it. I see a lot of books pass through Ginger Nut Towers, and it takes a lot for me to fall so completely in love with a book. This is a unique and amazing book that shines like a beacon through the rotting carcass of a dying genre.
This is the perfect christmas gift for the horror fan in your life who seems to have everything.
When the apocalypse arrives we might not be lucky enough to Sean on our team, so get your hands on the next best thing.
