    You can't kill the dead! Like any good monster, the zombie has proven to be ever-evolving, monumentally mutable, and open to seemingly endless imaginative interpretations: the thralls of voodoo sorcerers, George Romero's living dead, societal symbols, dancing thrillers, viral victims, reanimated ramblers, video-gaming targets, post-apocalyptic permutations, shuffling sidekicks, literary mash-ups, the comedic, and, yes, even the romantic.

    Amazon Customer says: "Multiple zombie genres - weak storytelling"
    "Just OK"

    What disappointed you about Zombies?

    Many of the stories are not about zombies, they are zombie-ish.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Mostly apathy, I drive alot so I just sat through most of the stories.


    Any additional comments?

    There were a few good stories and a few good narrators but they never seemed to come together.

    Story
    (1520)

    We are accustomed to think of sociopaths as violent criminals, but in The Sociopath Next Door, Harvard psychologist Martha Stout reveals that a shocking 4 percent of ordinary people, one in 25, has an often undetected mental disorder, the chief symptom of which is that that person possesses no conscience. He or she has no ability whatsoever to feel shame, guilt, or remorse. One in 25 everyday Americans, therefore, is secretly a sociopath.
