To say this book was written by someone with a rudimentary style is an understatement, that's what makes it so great. Forrest Griffin is a fighter with a single purpose, stay alive as long as you can. Whether that's in the Octagon or during the Apocalypse, this book is filled with useful tips (well most of them) on how to do just that. Though I'm sure some actual research went into making this novel, much of it seems borrowed from other sources such as FBI undercover agents or special forces. If you've gone camping, you may already know the basics on how to survive in the wild, but Forrest offers up details on how to survive like Mad Max instead of the usual. Between packing a "go bag", to building a fallout shelter, and finally how to equip your "Vehicle of Death" (insert mini gun here) you learn all the necessities of post-apocalyptic life. The section on castle building and cult creation were a riot, as were his definitions on cleanliness and lack of coffee. Although Forrest provides examples on how the Apocalypse might be brought about (nuclear war, virus, meteor, Ragnarok), he never pins down his own thoughts on how or why, just merely examples and explanations. I now have a healthy fear of squirrel pox because of this section. Overall, this book offers up some hilarious insights into the traumatic end of the world scenario we've seen in countless Hollywood blockbusters. One thing I know for sure, if the Apocalypse does hit, I hope like hell I can find my nook to reference this offbeat survival guide.
