"People have asked me, 'Did you write this as a metaphor for the paranoia that's sweeping the nation?' No. I'm not that smart, I'm just really scared of zombies."
--Max Brooks

Max Brooks is considered by many to be one of the world's foremost Zombie preparedness experts. The Zombie Survival Guide, Brooks' first release, is your key to success against the hordes of the undead that may be stalking you right now. The book is the result of Brooks' tireless search for both the living dead and ways to eradicate them, which has taken him to over 30 countries and territories in Europe, Russia, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Arctic and Sub-Saharan Africa. A New York Times best-seller, World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War (2007), soon to be made into a major motion picture starring Brad Pitt, tells the story of the world's desperate battle against the zombie threat with a series of first-person accounts "as told to the author" by various characters around the world. Publishers Weekly called the novel "surprisingly hard to put down." Brooks is ready to help you prepare with the latest Zombie survival techniques.
