    A great zombie self-help book

    Do you hate your job? Are you stuck in a teeny tiny cubicle with little to no possibility of advancement? Have you read every business self help book and still haven't experienced a fraction of the success of the disgustingly rich authors? Well, this is your lucky day! Throw away all of your other business self help books; this is the only one you will need! Scott Kenemore again draws on the wisdom of his previous self help book, The Zen of Zombie, and specifically applies to business. Learn how to work up the ranks of your workplace with the unrelenting drive of the zombie. The first half of the book focuses on the characteristics of zombies and how they could be applied towards business endeavors. The second half provides a quarter by quarter guide from your current position to Z.E.O. in only one year.

    With this wonderful book, I realized just how inefficient human workers are. They waste tons of time every day with things like unnecessary meetings and small talk. A zombie cuts all of that excess out of its day and works at a slow and steady pace, doing all work to the best of its ability. You don't see zombies stopping to chat with people while they go after brains. When in doubt, simply ask how a zombie would do it. It is also proved that other self help business books are really about becoming more like a zombie. For example, Robert Greene's 48 Laws of Power and Sun Tzu's Art of War are both obviously inspired by zombies.

    Scott Kenemore does it again in the latest installment of the zombie self help series. It's another great book that shows how zombies are awesome and we should be more like them. I was laughing through the entire book. I loved that other similar books were compared to this one and they were proved to be inferior. My favorite parts were the inspirational posters, like the one with zombies of different shapes and sizes holding hands in a semicircle, with the caption "Working Together...For Brains!" It's cute/creepy and has a great message.

    So if you want to improve your work ethic, move up in your company, or have a nice laugh, you need to read this book. I can't wait for his next book, The Art of Zombie Warfare.
