Editorial Reviews

Review

"The quintessential guide on the topic. It will make you laugh; it will make you think; it will make you wonder the barter value of your children in case things get crazy. You need this book if you wanna live."

Kevin Sussman, actor on the hit CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory

"I have to admit: I giggled."

―Jessica Lahey, New York Times bestselling author of The Gift of Failure

"At first I was like, ‘Oh, great, another hilarious parenting book written by a viral internet sensation. Just what the world doesn't need.' But then I finally read Only Dead on the Inside and realized this was a hilarious parenting book by a viral internet sensation with zombies and I was like, ‘I was wrong. The world does need this!' You'll chortle, you'll chuckle, and you might even learn something."

Jen Mann, New York Times bestselling author of People I Want to Punch in the Throat: Competitive Crafters, Drop-Off Despots, and Other Suburban Scourges

"This guide to parenting through the apocalypse is so darkly hilarious, you don't even need to be a parent or have experienced an apocalypse to enjoy it."

Liz Climo, artist for The Simpsons, author, and creator of viral comics on lizclimo.tumblr.com

"Are you a parent of cute, selfish, tiny people who look like you but don't pay rent, destroy your sleep, inspire homicidal thoughts, and shatter your self-confidence daily? Do you need help to survive this crisis? (Yes, yes you do.) Long-suffering parent, you must immediately read James Breakwell's hilarious, fast-paced, and practical book chock-full of wisdom, to-do lists, rules, and big pie charts and graphs. Breakwell not only taught me how to survive the madness of parenthood, but also how to protect my babies from becoming undead, crawling, brain-eating monsters in diapers after the inevitable zombie apocalypse."

Wajahat Ali, speaker and New York Times op-ed contributor

"Breakwell provides an entertaining read for parents and parents-to-be, with survival tips that hold true even if you aren't rearing your offspring in a savage, zombie-filled dystopia."

Amber Hunt, award-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author of The Kennedy Wives: Triumph and Tragedy in America's Most Public Family

"This book is hilarious! I couldn't put it down (out of fear for my life and that of future generations). This guide is the ultimate weapon against fighting zombies, which is the scariest prospect second only to parenting. I would put this novel in the self-help section with a seal of Oprah's approval, because not only does it help you live your best life, it finally gives you a good reason for owning that cumbersome stroller."

―Abbi Crutchfield, stand-up comedian and host of You Can Do Better on truTV

"The case is made for why parents will be the ultimate survivors of the Zombie Apocalypse. Whether it's using the ‘unreliability of your children to your advantage' or benefitting from the enmity a normal game of Monopoly can conjure, Breakwell pulls everyday scenarios for parents and hilariously weaponizes them for your survival. Plus, any book that uses the phrase ‘catastrophic bowel movements' is a book I want to read."

Patrick Quinn, cofounder of Life of Dad, a social network for fathers

"I never laugh out loud and this book is so funny I stopped reading to drag my family members in to read paragraphs to them but I'd do a terrible job of reading because I kept giggling about what I was reading. It's kind of about zombies, more about parenting, but mostly a reason to write one hilarious sentence after the next. James Breakwell is so good at being funny that it kind of makes me angry, but then I'd read another page and laugh like an idiot again. You need this book."

―Quinn Cummings, author of Notes from the Underwire and The Year of Learning Dangerously

"James Breakwell is the Dr. Spock of the apocalypse and his no-nonsense guide to raising happy, healthy kids as the world spirals into blood-soaked chaos and unspeakable brain-eating horror belongs in every home. When the undead come knocking, you'll burn all your other parenting books for fuel. Breakwell gives you the real-world, end-of-world strategies that you simply won't find anywhere else. Your family will survive and even thrive in the zombie apocalypse while parents who bought guides to raising gifted kids go down in the first wave. Wouldn't you rather have this book and not need it, than need it not have it?"

―Eileen Curtright, author of The Burned Bridges of Ward, Nebraska

"If the only line in this book was, ‘The fat shall inherit the earth,' I would still urgently recommend this book because it will have validated my entire existence. . . . Read this book because it will make you giggle uncontrollably, cry like no one's watching, and wonder if becoming a zombie isn't so bad after all. Eighteen stars. Highly recommended."

Rabia Chaudry, attorney and New York Times bestselling author of Adnan's Story: The Search for Truth and Justice After Serial
