Book Description

July 1, 2010
Since pre-history, the living dead have been among us, with documented outbreaks from ancient Babylon and Rome right up to the present day. But what if we were to suffer a zombie apocalypse in the UK today? Through meticulous research and field work, The Official Zombie Handbook (UK) is the only guide you need to make it through a major zombie outbreak in the UK, including: -Full analysis of the latest scientific information available on the zombie virus, the living dead creatures it creates and most importantly, how to take them down - UK style. Everything you need to implement a complete 90 Day Zombie Survival Plan for you and your family including home fortification, foraging for supplies and even surviving a ghoul siege. Detailed case studies and guidelines on how to battle the living dead, which weapons to use, where to hide out and how to survive in a country dominated by millions of bloodthirsty zombies. Packed with invaluable information, the genesis of this handbook was the realisation that our country is sleep walking towards a catastrophe - that is the day when an outbreak of zombies will reach critical mass and turn our green and pleasant land into a grey and shambling wasteland. Remember, don't become a cheap meat snack for the zombies!

Review

While other books about surviving zombie outbreaks are out there, this is by far the most complete, comprehensive of them all, and it is a must have if planning on surviving the inevitable upcoming zombie apocalypse --Hayes Hudsons House of Horror

Sean T. Page goes into such detail and reflection that the line between fact and fiction does not seem to exist... I got the Official Zombie Handbook (UK) on Saturday, within 2 days I had it read from cover to cover --zombiemall

I highly recommend this book to add to any collection of zombie literature! --Ursula K. Raphael, --Amazon Top 1000 Reviewer

More About the Author

A bit about me, I have trekked across Patagonia, the Alps and the Sahara, learning much from the locals on survival and dealing with ghouls. I have been thrown out of various government offices for pursuing my views with such vigour and am one step away from having a restraining order to keep me away from my local Member of Parliament.

95% of the population probably think I should be sectioned. The remaining 5% are who I rely on to spread the word - these are the folks who will survive a zombie apocalypse and help to rebuild our country in the aftermath.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learn it. Know it. Live it. August 14, 2010
By Humbaba
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This excellent, fascinating and entertaining book is like a cross between the Galactic Geographic sections of Heavy Metal magazine, a Fangoria book review, a Resident Evil strategy guide, and a survivalist doctrine written by George Romero. Dark humor and satire abound, as do random acts of grossology. But it also has a very serious side. It is well-researched in the fields of history and psuedohistory alike, sometimes creating a sensation of alternate history, which should appeal to the many fans of that particular genre. So in that way, it's kind of a cross-over, a genre-bender if you will. It's educational, citing myths from ancient Africa and historical mysteries like the disappearance of the Incans, to more recent events like wars in Burma, and then tying them all together in one bloody knot. I would imagine this book took a long time to write, unless the author was a history major and a biology major with a photographic memory, and maybe a few other college degrees and superpowers, as well. He's obviously a pretty erudite dude. It's meticulously researched, and disturbingly enough seems extremely plausible at times. There are parts that read like stories from the Zombie Zoology anthology. Watch out for those Z-Sharks! The guide to weapons is particulary cool. It seems to be modeled from a Dungeons and Dragons set, with durability and damage ratings for each one. The author could probably invent a pretty cool zombie role-playing game if he wanted to, or a video game, or both. Overall, this book feels so realistic and yet so out-there that I still can't figure out if everything in the bibliography-esque section at the back of the book is real or not. It's unorthodox, it's eclectic, and it's eminently readable. Buy this book. The life-or undeath-you save may be your own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hope To See You After Z-Day Too! August 5, 2010
By IDGS
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
First off I have to say, what a book.

Sean T Page single-handedly has taken the zombie survival concept and taken it to entirely another level. What has been started in other books as open-ended questions and holes cleverly covered with excuses has been answered in THE OFFICIAL ZOMBIE HANDBOOK: UK without a single missed detail.

From the sections outlining a survival plan with a green focus to 'documented' coverups by the government of the United Kingdom, Mr. Page has all his bases covered.

My particular favourite section was the chapter rating the effectiveness of weapons both conventional and those that come out of left-field at combating the walking dead. While everyone would love to have a sawed-off pistol-grip pump to merrily blow the undead into piles of steaming innards, we're all not so lucky. Nailgun? There's a rating for that. Baseball bat? Better believe it gets touched on. From the normal to the things you'd never think of, it's just downright enlightening.

While I found this immensely entertaining, it's definately for the Zombie Enthusiast, being a real how-to guide rather than just a few nicely packaged pages of prose meant to entertain. I think everyone could enjoy and benefit from it, but those who are a bit squeamish may find it a little graphic. That being said, I'll be glad when the faint-of-heart DON'T read this, meaning I'll have less rag-tag survivors to share my gear with. I'm selfish, deal with it.

All in all, a 5-Star effort by Sean T Page, and I'll be looking forward to snapping anything else this author comes out with.

Cheers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Addition to My Zombie Collection July 23, 2010
Format:Paperback
I received this book as a gift, and, even though I am located in the states, I was very interested in this handbook by Sean Page. I mistakenly thought it would be a slightly different version of The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks, but after reading through the whole thing, I was pleasantly surprised at the originality of Page's effort.

As a result of the debates and discussions within the zombie community, the genre has been growing and evolving. However, the general public still remains unaware of the danger of potential outbreaks. Even though there have already been several guides/manuals written, most of the books do not contain practical guidelines that can be applied internationally.

Sean Page, the author, has taken it upon himself to write such a manual specifically for the UK, where it is nearly impossible to get your hands on a firearm for self-defense. He also points out that preparing for a zombie outbreak with his 90-day survival plan would appeal to the environmentally-conscientious with a "green" agenda (for example, self-sufficiency); as most zombiephiles know, if you're prepared for an apocalypse, you'll be prepared for any emergency.

Addressing the controversy over the various types zombies within the horror genre, Page defines a zombie as "a dead body that has been brought back to life by an as yet unidentified virus which leads to the body to behave in a low intelligent and cannibalistic way." He emphasizes that the cause of an outbreak is not as important as keeping yourself alive.
