Overview

People have been predicting the end of the world since...well, the beginning of it. Oh, the form it takes may vary-firestorm, earthquake, plague, new ice age, alien invasion, nuclear cloud, or the rise of our machines-but everyone who survives will be starting over at Square One. Your needs won’t be that different from today’s: food, shelter, work, finances, relationships, 24-hour cable.... But you’ll have more raw materials to deal with. Apocalypse How is the humorous how-to-guide to living your best life possible (after the Apocalypse renders your current quality of life null and void.) Organized like a travel or lifestyle guide, the book tells you all you need to know in order to fend off zombies, forge for non-radioactive food, and make the most of your new dwelling (while ignoring the ash outline of its previous occupants on the far wall.)This handy volume includes such essential sections as: What to Expect When We’re Exploding Before We Blow: Your Essential To-Hoard List Should You Stay or Should You Flee? Questionnaire Sex, Love, and Dating: What if You Are the Last Man on Earth? The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Petty Tyrants The Apocalyptic Aptitude Test Apocalypse How is guaranteed to be of use in the world to come. It also makes a handy defense weapon if thrown, and firestarter if needed.

What People Are Saying

Cathryn Michon
Fiendishly clever, truly hilarious and oddly comforting. Rob Kutner is so funny he makes the end times seem like good times. This book is a perfect gift for anyone (me) who is having a tough time or even just a bad day (Tuesday, for example.) Buy Apocalypse How now, or you'll be kicking yourself when you glance in the rearview mirror and see four guys on horses in the carpool lane. (Cathryn Michon, comic and author of The Grrl Genius Guide to Life)
Jon Stewart
A great read. Don't cower in your lead-shielded, ape-proof bunker without it.
Dennis Miller
For years now, I've been wracking my brain trying to figure out whether Rob is a better guy or a better humorist. This cinches it, he is a far better humorist. I laughed, I most assuredly did not cry.
Neal Pollack
If you're reading this blurb, then congratulations! You're still alive and will soon discover that Apocalypse How is the last funny book ever written. (Neal Pollack, author, Alternadad)
Stephen Colbert
If you buy only one book to accompany you through horrific worldwide catastrophe, make it this one.
Brian K. Vaughan
When the end is nigh, this is the place to start. A hilarious and disturbingly comprehensive guide to humanity's inevitable self-destruction. (Brian K. Vaughan, writer, Lost and Y: The Last Man)
Danny Piraro
No end-of-the-world bunker will be complete without semi-automatic weapons, a case of Scotch, and several copies of Apocalypse How. This book makes me giddy about the apocalypse. I can't wait! (Danny Piraro, creator of Bizzaro)
