The zombie information is in fact interwoven with this, rather than standing alone, which I find refreshing and helpfully immersive. The sections about the book that are specifically about zombies aren't bad either, though I found the "science" behind zombies to be painful to read. As most zombie stories start without a cause, I almost feel as if the book would have benefited without that section.
Besides that little quibble though, I'm impressed at how much knowledge is packed into this little volume. The author went above and beyond the call of normal research in writing the book, accurately representing many professions from the military to language interpretation services. The author also represents different environments well, and has a decent grasp of different cultures in the world when he portrays them in the recorded zombie outbreaks.
This is a definite winning companion to World War Z. Gifters should consider getting the two as a set, because they truly do complete each other, the guide supporting the stories of World War Z with much-needed tactical information, while the stories of World War Z allow the reader to see what sacrifices and advances allowed the guide to come to fruition.
As far as alternative histories go, the two books together create a far more immersive experience than any book I've read, and beat out all zombie films/games I've seen as well.
A note: while basing normal survival on the Zombie Survival Guide may get you further than common sense would, it is no replacement for a real survival guide. As accurate and well-researched as it is, you should not depend on your zombie-obsessed family member for survival information from this book in a real-life crisis such as a hurricane or an earthquake.
You may think it's not, but I'm telling you it is.
Maybe not soon, but definitely one day.
What is it that I'm talking about??
Clearly the zombie apocolypse.
One day you will wake up and find that you are the only human being left. Actually, there is a small population of humans that haven't been turned, but you won't know that yet because you're the only one in your neighborhood.
You will then have two choices. Lay down and wait for your impending death at the hands (and mouth) of some brain starved zombie, or try to survive.
If you choose the latter, then you need this book.
Me?? I choose to survive. That's why I chose this book...
