Publisher's Summary

Since Night of the Living Dead, zombies have been a frightening fixture on the pop-culture landscape, lumbering after hapless humans, slurping up brains and veins and whatever warm, fleshy matter they can clench in their rotting limbs. But what if they were real? What would happen if, tomorrow, corpses across the nation began springing up out of their graves and terrorizing the living? Employing hard science and solid police work - not to mention jaw-dropping (literally!) humor - Zombie CSU is the only guide available to staying alive and avoiding the undead. 

At last listeners can:

  • Investigate zombie crime scenes, collecting and analyzing evidence of zombie attacks
  • Examine the psychology of the zombie and develop a perp profile
  • Observe medical science pros as they probe felled zombies for forensic clues
  • Devise a zombie apocalypse survival scorecard 
  • And more!

Complete with lists of must-see zombie flicks from around the globe and tons of tips for kicking undead butt, Zombie CSU features hundreds of interviews with real zombie experts, forensics experts, detectives, filmmakers, and more.

Like listening to a car's maintenance manual on CD

This should be a class in a stuffy liberal university. Every fan of the genre know the backstories. Tell us a thrilling zombie story. Scare us. Great book to fall in a deep deep sleep to.

Not as good as I expected

I was really excited by the description of this book, but I just couldn't really get into it. The content was interesting(ish), but it was punctuated by lots of random side-bars...presumably because the book is structured with lots of images and extras alongside the main narrative. I think it could have been structured differently as an audiobook to emphasize that the asides were completely separate from the rest of the book. Maybe put them in their own section at the end...

Story of a story

This well researched audiobook has a lot of focus on the zombie pop culture, especially the movies. The chapters are not aligned with the audio, maybe could be updated. Biofilm prevents the blood escaping from stab wounds. The zombie is on slow stand-by until it smells you, then it is fast. Society would be divided and outside the clean states is the weeping and gnashing of teeth. The bacterias might originate from an undiscovered mummy tomb which for every organ except the brain, have been perfectly preserved and evolved for thousands of years.
