Overview

Do you really need to buy this book? You gotta ask yourself one question: Are you going to be ready when the sh*t goes down? Here is a quick checklist:

1. Have you dug up your wife's rose garden and built a fallout shelter, equipped with a prison where you can lock up annoying family members?

2. Have you mapped out an escape route to your safe zone?

3. Is there a vehicle of death sitting in your garage?

4. Have you filled your go bag with all the needed instruments, including waterproof matches, postapocalyptic goggles, and at least one sexual party favor?

5. Have you learned how to milk various types of animals, including a giraffe?

As you can see, you need this book more than you even know. Without it, you're roadkill. Lucky for you, Forrest Griffin is the perfect apocalyptic chaperon. When he was in the womb, his mother had visions that the world would soon crumble, and Forrest would be the messiah of all mankind. He learned of these "visions" at the age of ten, and although they led him to believe that his mom had just been watching Mad Max and eating bad Mexican food, nevertheless he began his postapocalyptic training—a part of which involved his becoming a proud member of the Webelos, which is just one step below Boy Scout. And you know what the Boy Scout motto is. (Well, I hope you do, because Forrest doesn't have a clue). Another part involved hoarding ketchup packets, which he sucked down in the darkness of his room while listening to Nine Inch Nails. Hey, don't judge . . . hoarders are survivors. Just look at squirrels, they have been around longer than sharks.

If you want to survive the end of the world, and then avoid ending up in a government holding pen suffering from a bunch of diseases and listening to crying babies, you've got some skills to master. But don't worry—Forrest has you covered. From spotting the signs of the global downfall, to alienating your loved ones now so they don't come looking for you after, to hot-wiring a car to starting a religion in your own image, he provides you with all the hot knowledge you need to survive the downfall of civilization. Simply put, this is the most important book about the apocalypse that you will ever read by a UFC fighter from Georgia.

    more from this reviewer

    Full of knowledge..and stuff

    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.
