Zombies at the Door, Planning for the Inevitable
We all know it can happen, will happen. Be prepared and have a laugh at the same time. This basic manual will make sure you are ready to face the zombie hordes and walk you through where to meet, find weapons and food, and set up camp. It may even give you hope as you huddle in the bathroom stall at the mall.
Seriously though, don't go to the mall!
Learn the glow stick technique to distract zombies or how a paper bag might save your life or at least keep you from seeing the bitey end that's coming. Are dentist offices safe? Can the game of baseball stop the zombies from attacking? Is petroleum jelly something you should have in your zombie kit? Find out now

THREE WORDS: Funny. Informative. Useful (and NO, informative does not always equate with useful, but in this case it totally does)

MY BRIEF REVIEW: We’ve all been there, at a party; dinner; gathering; book club meeting, and the topic of the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse has come up (I use the word inevitable because hundreds of movies, tv shows, books, video games, theorists, historians, geeks, and nerds can’t ALL be wrong right…right?!). I know my family has lively discussions about what we’d do if faced with an apocalyptic event at least once a week (I kid you not).

 And admit it, we ALL have thought about what we’d do if the ZA (short for Zombie Apocalypse, duh) started tomorrow and we ALL have a plan. They might not all be good plans, but they’re plans nonetheless. Now, I want you to take a moment and think about the plan you’ve come up with, all the details about where you’d go, what you’d bring, what you’d do…can you visualize the plan? Good! Now, I want you to toss that plan aside and read Charles Pulsipher’s Zombies At The Door, Planning for the Inevitable.

In this incredibly funny, smart guide Pulsipher maps out exactly what a person needs to do in order to survive when zombies come a’zomby’ingß in the words of Pulsipher himself-“It’s a word, I swear!”.

 Pulsipher has created a straightforward, well thought out plan that will have you LOL’ing and will probably safe your life someday. All the most important bases are covered- Where To Go, What To Bring, Weapons, Zombie Anatomy-and, really, this is a guide that would work in any apocalyptic or catastrophic event.

You’ll learn priceless and must-know information such as:
·         Screaming = Bacon
·         Don’t go the mall
·         Swords are awesome (not just when zombies are around, but all the time)
·         Seriously, don’t go to the mall
·         The higher up you can get, the better
·         Baseball is boring
·         Zombies no likey fire… or in Zombiese- Brains good. Fire bad.
·         DO. NOT. GO. TO. THE. MALL!!!!

MY FINAL THOUGHTS: Zombies at the Door, Planning for the Inevitable is a humorous, highly entertaining read. It’s laugh out loud funny and informative at the same time, which is about as rare as a vegetarian zombie. If you’re looking for a great book to add to your Incase Of A insert your most feared/expected/longed for (weirdo) Apocalypse/Natural Disaster/Catastrophic Event Kit or simply looking for an awesome, super quick read, then this book is for you. A MUST read!
