4.0 out of 5 stars A serious read, essential for any survivalist, 30 Dec. 2004
This review is from: The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead (Paperback)
Whilst there is no shortage of publications available for survivalists, one area which has been neglected for a long time is how to survive an attack from the living dead. The Zombie Survival Guide is a welcome attempt to fill this niche, with practical advice on how to identify an outbreak of the zombie virus, and how to avoid joining the undead hordes yourself.
The book is split into seven sections. The first section separates zombie myth and reality, detailing zombie behaviour and classifying different types of outbreak. Later sections deal with weapons and combat techniques, immediate and long-term defence, travel within an infested region, and how to turn a group of civilians into an effective search-and-destroy force. The final section offers detailed accounts of zombie attacks throughout history; an appendix also provides a short outbreak journal.
The details on protecting a private residence I found particularly useful, as knowing how to get through the initial chaos and confusion is critical. I'm now prepared to fortify my home defences at a moments notice, and appreciate the importance of destroying the staircase -- zombies, with their poor coordination, are essentially unable to climb. The best approach when the dead first rise is to hide out of reach and earshot, and to stay put with plenty of supplies for as long as possible.
One minor point against the book is that it's primarily written for an audience in the United States. As a result, some of the information -- notably the details on firearms -- isn't applicable to the UK or other countries. Nonetheless, The Zombie Survival Guide is well laid out, and imbued with an unrelenting tension, much like the living dead themselves. It has exactly the no-nonsense approach that is required in a time of crisis, and should be essential reading for anyone who wishes to protect themselves and their loved ones from zombie attack.
