Audible Picks: The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks

This is part 3 of my Halloween series of posts. Part II is here and Part I is here. Happy Halloween! This post was inspired by AM and AG.

The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead is a cult favorite among those fascinated with the inevitable arrival of the zombie apocalypse. The book is hard to find, as compared to Max Brooks’ second book World War Z which is available in National Bookstore, Fully Booked and Powerbooks.

The Zombie Survival Guide is your key to survival against the hordes of undead who may be stalking you right now. Exhaustively comprehensive, this book covers everything you need to know, including how to understand zombie physiology and behavior, the most effective defense tactics and weaponry, ways to outfit your home for a long siege, and how to survive and adapt in any territory or terrain.

Top 10 Lessons for Surviving a Zombie Attack:
1. Organize before they rise!
2. They feel no fear, why should you?
3. Use your head: cut off theirs.
4. Blades don’t need reloading.
5. Ideal protection: tight clothes, short hair.
6. Get up the staircase, then destroy it.
7. Get out of the car, get onto the bike.
8. Keep moving, keep low, keep quiet, keep alert!
9. No place is safe, only safer.
10. The zombie may be gone, but the threat lives on.

Don’t be carefree and foolish with your most precious asset: life. The Zombie Survival Guide offers complete protection through trusted, proven tips for safeguarding yourself and your loved ones against the living dead. It is an audiobook that can save your life.

So if you can’t find the book, let’s listen to the audiobook. Once again, Audible saves the day!

P.S. World War Z is also available on Audible.

P.P.S. Max Brooks is the son of Mel Brooks.

P.P.S. If you’re a non believer in the zombie apocalypse and believe that one day robots will rule the world, you can also check out How to Survive a Robot Uprising.

Dead Set: Big Brother meets the Zombie Apocalypse

Happy Halloween!

Are you prepared for the zombie apocalypse?

To top off a really productive week I was able to borrow a few Zombie flicks from Adel. These included Day of the Dead (2008), Dance of the Dead (2008), Dead Space: Downfall and with high recommendation, Season 1 Episode 1 of Dead Set. I was immediately sold to the series when Adel told me that the plot involved the reality TV housemates left to fend for themselves at the Big Brother House while the zombie infestation consumes all of humanity; their eyes glued to the set for that last piece of living flesh.

And such is a quaint, revealing picture of mass media: we’re all lifeless forms in front of the media, waiting to consume such lustful objects of scrutiny. 🙂
