Publisher's Summary

Zombie Preparedness Tips for the Common Folk

This might sound funny to you right now, but what if it happens? You would be glad you have listened to this book. Plus, it is possible for you to use some ideas here for real emergencies, like typhoons, tsunami or earthquake. How Zombies Come into Being. You must have seen at least a dozen films depicting zombies eating flesh and taking over an entire metropolis, but, hey, where do zombies originate and why do they enjoy eating brains that much? The word "zombie" takes its roots from a religion in Caribbean countries, particularly Haiti, named voodoo and means a dead body brought back to life without a soul.The propagation of this idea made people think "How would I prepare myself during a zombie apocalypse?" Well, fret not at all. This book has the answer and hopefully will share great ideas on how to prepare for real emergencies as well!

    "advice is so vague it isn’t useful"

    I sat down to listen to Amy Rife’s Zombie Survival Essentials with the idea that it would be informative on some level, and possibly entertaining to boot.

    The Modern Day Prepper’s Guidebook to Surviving a Zombie Apocalypse didn’t manage to do either for me. Mark Westfield does a nice job reading the text. There’s no backgroud noise issues, and he reads cleanly and at an enjoyable pace. But the problem lies with the text itself.

    The presentation is dry, much like a textbook but without any neat diagrams or photographs to illustrate the information being relayed; the effect leaves many of the ‘survival tips’ unexplained fully, and could easily confuse someone who wanted useful advice. I’d hoped for perhaps humor to be mixed in, or possibly even examples of how to use some of the survival ideas in the book, but there were none.

    Now, the ‘survival ideas’ are another story entirely. I would argue that the majority of the advice given in this book is so vague it isn’t useful, or it boils down to common sense. I guess in an eight minute guidebook you can’t expect much.

    The chapter on guns is laughably ill informed. The author advises people to track down a carbine or rifle, with a pistol for backup, but gives no advice as to what brands, styles, calibers, or mechanical types to use. She then suggests that people track down suppressors, or make their own. The good advice there is that she advises that making a suppressor is difficult.

    Another bit of ‘survival advice’ is to find a group of survivors, and join them. At any moment I expected to hear advice like ‘use a tent in bad weather’ or even ‘brush your teeth twice daily to avoid cavities.’

    Anyone checking this out should be very aware that this is just eight minutes long, and that little to no advice usable in a real survival situation can be explained properly in that time, let alone an entire guidebook’s. I would’ve given more credit to the book had it been tongue-in-cheek, or perhaps was written in a way that led the reader/listened to places where they could find actually usable information, but the book avoids that to keep its brevity.

    My advice would be to skip this book for anything meaty or serious, and perhaps dig up something from the Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts. They actually would offer information about surviving in an environment that’s difficult or even dangerous.
