A fun, informative read.

I love zombie books, I got this as a lark because of the title and sat down last night to read it.

I can honestly say that I know a great deal more about zombies now than I did before the book.

I love zombie books, I got this as a lark because of the title and sat down last night to read it. The writer doesn't just cover zombie attack, he goes into depth regarding living prepared for the worst case scenario. Loved the whole house burned down and sleeping in your car part. I can so see that happening to myself and my loved ones. Had never really given much thought to it before reading this book but the book made me realize that in these extremely unsure times is always better to be prepared than to suffer the consequences. If you have a BOB sitting readily available you have a much lower chance of being completely lost in the event you lose personal possessions due to a house fire, tornado, or even flood. Many things can and do happen at the drop of a hat, this helps you be a little more prepared to care for those you love should the worst happen. My personal motto has always been hope for the best, plan for the worst and accept what comes. Many will not buy this book simply because it has the word Zombie in the title, but don't let that fool you. It is a how to be prepared manual for caring for those you love. I highly recommend this book and plan on taking many of the steps the author talks about in this book. I may not go to the extremes the author listed but many of the ideas are founded in common sense and logic.

As I turned to the first page I read this phrase "No matter your geographic location, age, race, financial situation or religious or political affiliation ... you CAN be affected by emergencies and disasters". Wow! How's that for an "ah-ha" moment?

`Plan and Prep: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse' is not your ordinary run of the mill boogie-man/Zombie book. It is a practical guide with viable disaster survival information. The author explains in simplistic terms that one person's Zombie Apocalypse is another person's Global Thermonuclear War, Global Climate Change or yes, even the dreaded Alien Invasion (jury's still out on that one *grin*) His emphasis - no matter what the disaster; planning and preparation are key to survival.

Although it would be impossible to actually cover every single disaster scenario due in part to the many factors and variables involved in each, the author is able to explain planning and preparedness in easy understandable guidelines using illustrations drawn by Illustrator Jamie Mathieson and incorporating a more humanistic approach with story lines that help even the newest of preparedness-minded to understand not only what to prepare for but why they are preparing for it.

You'll find the standard disaster/survival topics such as different disasters, weapons, food, shelter, bartering items and survival basics to the more thought provoking "what do we do now?" concerns that may come after an event; such as growing food, hunting and gathering. He also, discuss of the `likeliness' verses "not as likely' of many disasters. Although, I would caution you on discounting any disaster - stranger things have happened, right? History does have a way of repeating itself.

Plan and Prep: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse is one of the best preparedness books I have read - and I've read a lot of them. This book stands out in that it is interesting, informative, sprinkled with just the right amount of humor and, of course, involves zombies!

Using "the Zombie Apocalypse" as a tool to spark interest in being prepared for emergencies is just plain fun. Families who want to engage their children's interest in being prepared will have an easier time getting and keeping their attention by preparing for a cool apocalypse (like zombies), as opposed to a really boring one (like a coronal mass ejection - Booooooring). There are tons of video games on zombies (hence my evidence that zombies are cool) however, I don't think there are any on CMEs. But, I digress.

This is an outstanding introduction to preparedness. It covers every angle of emergencies and disasters from having to evacuate the house in a fire, up to the dreaded "H1Z1 Zombie Flu" which is used in a story in the book about a family who survives this end of the world as we know it event. The book follows a family who live through several emergencies and disasters. It shows how they first came into the preparedness lifestyle, and how they prepared for various scenarios. The book covers everything that you and your family need to think about and prepare for to survive a small emergency, as well as a major catastrophe.

For any skeptics out there, I would point out that the United States Government - the Center for Disease Control - has a zombie apocalypse web page: [...] cdc. gov/ phpr/ zombies. htm (remove the spaces). Do they believe that a zombie apocalypse will happen? I doubt it. They use it as a platform to reach and engage their audience and encourage people to be prepared.

As a man who has read quite a few books geared toward prepping, I have absorbed the good, the bad, and the incredibly hopelessly ugly. I had not, however, read a truly excellent tome on the subject. Until now.

P&P is a wonderful book. Clear language, straight-forward presentation, paranoia-free assessments. The scenarios are concise and plausible, with the fictional elements interwoven into the non-fiction aspects very well (the story of Family Bill and the zombie event really pulled me in). This is a great read for preppers, yes, but also a perfect introduction for those unfamiliar with the prepping lifestyle, those considering it but are not sure how to start... or if it is needed.

Trust me, it is needed. Mr Newton lays that out quite succinctly, along with a presentation of the basics you need to get started.

As anyone who knows the author's Twitter feed can attest, Mr Newton also has a sharp wit, and that sense of humor is prevalent throughout the book - prevalent, but never overwhelming. To put it the parlance of humorists, "timing" is everything... and the author has that timing.

If you're looking for a dry, encyclopedic dissertation about every minute aspect of 'how-to" survival, this is not your book. If, however, you are looking for an enjoyable read that will inspire you, one which will detail the vitals while filling your mind with great ideas? Then yes, this is the book for you.
