Scott Kenemore, author of The Zen of Zombie and Zombie, Ohio
For too long, those writing about zombies have obsessed about the living dead eating human flesh. What about what humans will eat when the undead roam the earth? Lauren Wilson has finally answered all of your culinary questions. An essential read for anyone who wants to not only survive the zombie apocalypse, but thrive!
Daniel W. Drezner, author of Theories of International Politics and Zombies
Much more than just a cookbook, The Art of Eating Through the Zombie Apocalypse is an essential survival manual for every serious doomsday prepper. Eschewing ubiquitous chapters on hand-to-hand combat and gun safety, Lauren Wilson’s apocalyptic guidebook instead focuses on what would really matter for survivalfor who wants to exist in a world populated with zombies if there’s nothing good to eat (besides humans, of course)?
Kyle William Bishop, author of American Zombie Gothic
Who knew that my lifelong love of the undead would yield access to some damn good recipes? Thanks to this book, should the zombie apocalypse ever happen at least I'll be well nourished and happy.
Steven C. Schlozman, MD, assistant professor, Harvard Medical School, author of The Zombie Autopsies
There are many reasons people find it stimulating or amusing to contemplate the impending zombie apocalypse: they like to imagine themselves being a good deal more heroic and/or violent than their current situations allow, they desire the end of current social/economic arrangements, or they hope for a better world following the demise of this one. A book such as this revels in a related scenarioto picture oneself living in comfort and even luxury amidst all the destruction and chaos . . . If such a reverie appeals to you, you’ll thoroughly enjoy this book.
Dr. Kim Paffenroth, author of Gospel of the Living Dead
Here's a thorough exposition of all the skills and practices anyone who wants to live through the collapse of civilization needs to know. The author covers all aspects of survival technology in depth and with clarity, and there's even a smattering of edible wild plants.
Wildman Steve Brill, author of Identifying and Harvesting Wild and Medicinal Plants in Wild (and Not So Wild) Places
A disturbingly delicious and mouth-watering collection of truly apocalyptic recipes. Who thought the end of the world could be this yummy? Go on . . . take a bite!

There are recipes to use if you can eat out of your cupboard. What, no stock left?!? well then here is an intro to fishing traps, bleeding out, skinning, cleaning, making stove hacks with found materials..Don't have a temperature gauge? np use the "hand method"- there is a chart. Got a kitchen still? it will tell you how to keep it clean and even make soap. Hey, raise some meal worms then cook up some "mealworm fried rice"! I wont this week, but I learned never to say never. Author Laura Wilson needs to seriously break down each chapter and write a separate detailed book on every area- what an awesome set of books that would be. Great book Laura. Kristian Bauthus did awesome illustrating here.I highly recommend this book..ooo and what is that cover made of? It feels sooo good...maybe made so zombie sludge will slide right off?
My favorite quote in the book "Failure to prepare to survive is a decision NOT to survive". (cl hendricks)
Will be purchasing another one.
My son (9) is into survival, and I got it for him in the hope he will be interested in making some of the food. He does find it a bit scary, so won't read it at night.
I am keeping this book with our camping equipment, so we can try things when in the wilderness. Highly recommended.
