Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"If you are into zombies, Zombies for Zombies is a great addition to your collection. And if zombies are not your thing, then this is still a great piece of humor that effectively parodies our modern world. And if you are one of the recently bitten, "read this book like there's no tomorrow, because in your case tomorrow isn't what it used to be."" - Grasping for the Wind

"Murphy simply takes the niceties of modern life (and occasionally the lack thereof), throws in the added dimension of recent zombification, and presto: instant cultural mishmash, suitable for snorting coffee all over." - Sacramento News and Review

"Once bitten it is vital to be familiar with the impending challenges and how to deal with them swiftly and appropriately. For the infected, Z4Z is a must have." - The UnClean

"I love that zombies are making the trasition for horror to humor - this book is perfect for those who agree! " - The Hiding Spot

The author tries to be funny, and the ones that try are the ones that fail. This book is based on nothing real. I do understand the word fiction, however, I am a believer that one day zombieism could happen so I tend to like books along these lines. Zombies for Zombies writes about pills to take to help you fell better along the transition that will not ever exist. Meal plans, retirement facilities, sexual positions, dance moves...none of this is funny nor thought provoking in any way. A total waste of money.

Funny book, pretty good at parts. Not all I hoped for.

I had high expectations for this book and I was pretty disappointed. The writer tries to be witty and funny but fails and it gets very distracting. It makes it tough to get into the book. I would recommend picking up one of Max Brooks' excellent books rather than this one.

I love Zombies and I love the For Dummies books but this book doesn't live up to my expectations. It didn't hold my interest long enough to read past the 1st chapter and a half.

If you're looking for something imaginative, entertaining, and laugh-out-loud funny, check out "Zombies for Zombies." You don't have to be a zombie fan to get a kick out of this book. Anybody with a sense of humor and an inclination to mock self-help books will enjoy the helpful advice and zany illustrations found in "Advice and Etiquette for the Living Dead." If you're not amused, have someone check your pulse.

It was laugh out loud funny and entertaining. If you need a good laugh and do not take life too serioulsy this is the book for you. While it may seem bleak being about zombies and all it is uplifting and something I may even look forward to :)
