Book Review: THE ZOMBIE HANDBOOK by Rob Sacchetto

Here is another great zombie book I have run across: THE ZOMBIE HANDBOOK by Rob Sacchetto. Some of you might recognize the name Rob Sacchetto as the world-renowned zombie illustrator from http://www.zombieportraits.com/. For those not familiar with the site, check it out. It is a cool site where you can send Rob a photo and he will send you a hand illustrated picture of you as a member of the undead!! Ok, now back to the book. Rob's book is a fun, illustrated guide to surviving the coming Zombie Apocalypse. The book includes tons of helpful tips such as Zombie-proofing your home, setting lures and traps, identifying the different types of zombies, and choosing the best armor and weapons to kill the zombies. The illustrations throughout are great and the info is very useful. This is a great book with lots of tongue-in-cheek humor (I don't really know what the means) and lots of subtle references to popular zombie films throughout. With a copy of this book in hand, you should be fine when the Zombie Apocalypse begins. If you do not buy this book and study it profusely, then you are as good as zombie food!
Bon Appetit!

  1. That website looks awesome! I can't believe I've never heard of it!

    I haven't read The Zombie Handbook yet...any idea how it compares to The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks?

  2. The Zombie Handbook is a little more cartoonish/comedic than the Zombie Survival Guide. Both are must have for Zombie lovers though!
