The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks – Really can’t recommend this book too much or too heartily. It is essential reading for those who wish to survive the coming apocalypse.

“It’s the lack of intelligence that scares the crap out of me. So I wanted my zombies to be as viral as possible. They literally are a walking virus, which you can’t negotiate with. So that was where I was coming from. The hard part was the real-world research, really finding guns that don’t jam, or what you would really need. I did a lot of studying for that, and I really had to think about it.”
