But it's the humor throughout that had me chuckling as I read the book... There's a whole section on "Obstacles You Will Face" — such as doorknobs, ladders, stairs, fences, trees, and ropes. And there are some great illustrations to help in defeating these obstacles, such as a picture of a kid climbing one of those ropes most of us hated in gym class with two zombies waiting at the bottom... "Just wait it out — your victim can't hang on forever..." And when doorknobs are involved, "if physical abuse proves useless, try rotating the knob as indicated . (Result may vary.)" We're doomed if zombies have detailed doorknob instructions!
One of my favorite sections is on "Waiting for Food" with a picture of zombies hiding behind trees that made me laugh out loud. All I could think of was the Monty Python sketch "How Not To Be Seen," with zombies instead of Python members hiding behind shrubberies... Not all house plants or lawn-decorating plants are made equal evidently. Just make sure after the zombie outbreak that you look suspiciously at any zombie-shaped trees.
And the "Combat Quiz" (p. 103) tests your knowledge. After reading the book, you should be able to answer questions such as "Someone just stabbed a knife in my back, I should... a) Seek medical attention immediately! b) Get over it, and continue with what I am doing. c) Fall down to ease the pain. d) Have a fellow Zed remove it." Considering zombies feel no pain and it's not a head wound, I think I'd go with answer (b).
If you are preparing for the inevitable zombie apocalypse and your eventual change to the wandering dead, I'd encourage you to keep a copy of So Now You're a Zombie: A Handbook for the Newly Undead by John Austin to stash in one of your open body cavities after death. You never know when it will come in handy!
