|New from||Used from|
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

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.
THE OFFICIAL ZOMBIE HANDBOOK is specifically designed as a survivalist guide for a zombie outbreak in Great Britain -- and that is where it fills a unique niche. Sure, a number of other zombie resources have been published, but this one takes a very localized look at a number of important British considerations, one of the biggest being the dearth of readily available guns and firearms. That's an angle that resonated particularly for me, as not *everyone* in the U.S. has easy access to guns galore, so much of the advice can be applied to any locale. Is your average axe better than the household hammer in eradicating walkers in your area? What are some of the best ways to fortify your home? Or should you just bug out to the nearest prison or other reinforced location? Page answers all this and more.
Writers will find a treasure trove of ideas for their own works in this book and horror aficionados -- or, heck, anyone -- should enjoy the dark humor woven throughout. Creative, entertaining, and full of insight into a zombie-filled world, this is a fun read from cover to cover. Give it a shot!
