I think the most important thing I can say is that every time I picked this book up, I didn't want to put it down. Part of that was because I wanted to get to the 'historical accounts' that Brooks kept referencing, but hey, smart of him, right? ;)
The main issue with The Zombie Survival Guide was its repetitiveness. A lot of the information about, for instance, terrain, could have had a good bit of fat trimmed off it. Many things just felt like they were being described in slightly different ways in order to add length.
Overall though, I enjoyed reading, and once I got to the 'historical accounts' I was doubly hooked. Though not without its problems, this book is a good read. If you're a fan of zombie culture or loved World War Z, I'd say that The Zombie Survival Guide is a must read. 3.5/5 stars.
