The Zen of Zombie: Better Living Through the Undead

Land of the Thurs-dead: Comics and books. Literate zombies? Well, literally about zombies at least.




Ah, The Zen of Zombie. Now here's a book that makes way too much sense to me. In fact, after I had read it for the first time, I quit zombies for awhile. I felt I had somehow lost a tiny bit of my humanity, and that I needed to regain my old perspective on life. It didn't work. I still find myself asking that all important question - W.W.Z.D? (What Would Zombies Do?) *

The answer is here, my friends. In the pages of this book, you will find all the answers to your questions - even those you did not even know you were asking. In Part One: The 24 habits of Highly Effective Zombies, you will learn just how zombies benefit from being zombies. Part Two is 12-week workshop, designed to help you become more like a zombie. Each week you will learn a different technique that will help you emulate the undead. There are scenarios to illustrate the points being made, as well as thorough explanations of each.





Sprinkled throughout the book are Zombie Tips. They are words of wisdom, meant to guide you in your everyday life. Here are just a few examples:
      - A brain in the hand is worth two behind the hastily improvised zombie barricades.
      - When life gives you lemons...use them to lay some kind of trap for a guy who likes lemons. Then you can eat his brains
      - A brain by any other name would still taste as sweet. *


 Who needs Confucius when you have zombies? Unless he's Zombie-Confucius of course...


The Zen of Zombie is brilliantly written by Scott Kenemore.
