"If you're already a zombie fan, you'll be blown away by the time and energy sunk into this book. If you're not a zombie a fan, this book will make you one!" --Max Brooks, Author of Zombie Survival Guide and World War

I bought this as a birthday gift for my husband and he has hardly put it down since he opened the package. He has always been interested in zombies and since this book was just published I figured he hadn't read it yet. He's totally into it and now has me reading it, too (when I can steal it from him)! First of all, this book has really does live up to it's title - it has EVERYTHING you would ever want to know about zombies. We are now armed with all available knowledge on zombie history, their biological make-up, and how to survive an attack which as parents we appreciate because we have two small children. Also, the author has studied zombie film history in depth and gives fascinating analyses of these films. Lastly, it is fun and interesting to read which is important to me in a non-fiction book. An easy five stars for this book and a must-read for all parents.

This book is certainly different. If you're a fan of zombie movies (or monster movies in general) you will probably get a kick out of this book. I am proudly one of those fans, but I found myself getting bored and skipping from paragraph to paragraph every now and then. It's as if the author's publisher trapped him within a set amount of pages to write. While fun at times, I found it to be incredibly repetitive.

It reads like a toaster instruction manual. If that is your idea of fun, go for it.

The content seems ok if you can slog through it. I put it down about 25% in. I would rather read another book for a second time than keep reading this.

If the zombie craze is an allegory for the countdown to Armageddon, then Matt Mogk is our modern day Noah. Buy this book in pairs and start building your ark. The illustrations are impeccable. The structure is imminently readable. And the substance may save your life -- or better yet, allow you to keep living while dead!

I was happy to see most of the reviews were positive, and seeing the product info was informative as well, so I purchased the book. If you are looking for a picture type of book, this is not it. If you are looking for one that gives you info on the genre and an add on to other books in your collection, then, yes, this is it. I have been holding Max Brooks up to a high standard, since his things are the best I have read, and seeing this, has been a blessing. I like the fact Matt Mogk goes to the pop culture things, but also gives you info on things that I even hadn't seen in print for awhile, and gives good detailed info on everything he has in the book.
Yeah, okay, maybe some of you have had more than your fair share of Zombie books, movies, and other merchandise out there. But people like me who grew up loving the genre and still crave more of the good things that can and will come out of this new resurgence out of a long winding road of insanity and death.
As an added bonus, you can get into his Zombie Research Society, and he has websites to go to for added pleasure and reassurance that all is not right with the world, and we will soon be able to see how well or bad we do as living person against the Zombies and forthcoming Apocalypse.

I bought this book for my son for his birthday. He is a huge zombie fan and I thought this looked fun. The book is full of random information and things you might need to know or do. It is written in a style that keeps it interesting and gives you survival ideas and tips. I suggest this book for all zombie fans as a fun and informative read.

Gifts for my adult Zombie loving sons, 41 and 26 .They loved the book ( paperback ). They are equipped with PCs, lap tops, phones, and tablets but loved having a solid book in hand to place on library shelves. I always buy used and have never been disappointed in service, condition of book and price. I have 6 children and 7 grandchildren and buy about 100 books a year. Max Brooks knows his Zombies and shares all. He is a tribute to his illustrious father and writes a catchy book! Buy it ! You will not be disappointed.

This book is a love letter to the zombie genre.

If you know nothing about zombies then Matt will get you up to speed and probably make a fanboy out of you.

If your already a fan of zombies, then look foward to a great read with plenty of interesting facts about survival, zombie movies, culture, games, and zombies in general. Plenty of quotes and citations also give this book a great sense of authenticity. Also, this is NOT a rip-off of "The Zombie Survival Guide" (another awesome book btw).

Now I understand that there have been a lot of zombie themed books out as of late since Max Brooks kicked off the zombie book craze, some of which are great while others were clearly just put forth to make money. "Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Zombies" thankfully does not fall into the latter category.

Matt Mogk definitely put a huge deal of love and effort into his book and is probably the biggest zombie fanboy I have ever seen, which is a good thing.

It's an easy read, plenty of facts for even the most jaded undead fan, and you will definitely be sad once the last page has been turned.

If your a zombie fan, you do a disservice to the genre by not reading this book.

Great buy, 110% satisfied.
