What the Critics Say

"One would expect the son of Mel Brooks to have a genetic predisposition to humor, and indeed, he does, and he exhibits it relentlessly here." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Terrible"

    Just completely boring - why write or record this??? No story at all. Just idiotic. I love zombie stories but this was just dumb.

    "Great read. Get and stay prepared."

    Having a bug out bag and weapons shouldn't seem so outlandish in today's world, anyway.

    "Love the book, hate the Narrator."

    I've read the book and love it. I was excited to share it with my significant other on a road trip, but unfortunately we couldn't bring ourselves to finish listening.

    Max Brooks is a genius, but the narrator is stale and really makes the book feel like a chore to listen through.

    "First half great, second half repeaty"

    I loved the first half of this audio book. The second half, though, delves into a detailed (fake) history of zombie outbreaks, and gets really monotonous and each story quickly starts sounding like the last. I would have cut the second half in half, but otherwise a very enjoyable book and a good performance for a single narrator.

    "clinical"

    You will either love it or hate it. There is sound advice that can be used in multiple situations not just zombies.

    "Not great"

    WWZ was the first audio book I tried. Really enjoyed it so I thought I'd check out the survival guide. I thought this was lame. Perhaps it just didn't translate well into audio from print. It did have some comical value in that the narrator spent a great deal of time describing some weapon or vehicle or hiding place or fortress in great detail only to tell you that each is unsuitable for anything except ensuring your personal doom. While I highly recommend World War Z (still the best audio book I've listened to) I think I'd take a pass on the survival guide. I feel no better prepared to defend myself from zombies. There I said it.
