About the Book

Disaster can strike at any time and most people are not prepared for it. Disaster preparedness is essential, but most find it unexciting. However, anyone who has watched a zombie movie has a plan in mind for how they would survive it, and those imaginary plans translate well to real-world disaster scenarios.

Using the backdrop of some of the most well-known zombie properties (Night of the Living Dead, 28 Days Later, and The Walking Dead), this book is a guide for preparing for a disaster or service interruption lasting from just a few days to several weeks or more. Food, water, shelter, personal safety—all the topics are discussed, including what do to when you are forced to leave your shelter, and where to go. Readers will learn to comfortably and confidently face fires, floods, tornadoes, strong storms, roving zombies, or even rampaging kaiju.
