The Zen of Zombie is a funny, self-help parody that pivots on the central point that zombie's are free to exercise self interest because they're not afraid of anybody or anything.

Are you unsatisfied with your life? Have you read ever self help book out there an still haven't achieved the success of their beautiful, smiling authors? Well, you're in luck. Achieve a state of zen and all the success you want by emulating zombies. Scott Kenemore, in his revolutionary self-help book The Zen of Zombie, lists all the attributes and characteristics of zombies that can help you with the reasoning behind it. Then, in the second half of the book, guides you through a 12 week process in which to take on these characteristics so that you can become the person you want to be. Don¿t listen to all the slander of the media, saying that zombies are mindless creatures who must be destroyed. Zombies are to be envied. Their extreme focus and drive is often mistaken for mindlessness. Don¿t you wish you could go after something as intently as a zombie going after brains? Zombies have it worse than any other group. What other group gets attacked, verbally and physically, instantly without any repercussions? Zombies don¿t let this get them down.Scott Kenemore is hilarious. Every page is funny and stays to the point. I learned about how I can apply his theory to many situations in my life: in my job, my love life, and my life in general. I have never read a book where being a zombie or zombie-like was a positive. He covered all types of zombies: slow moving, higher functioning, fast moving, etc. My favorite part of the book is when he reasoned that Jesus is a zombie. I know many people might be offended by this, but it¿s really funny. Have a sense of humor about your faith once in a while. Plus he has a point.The Zen of Zombie is a great addition to anyone¿s zombie library. I would recommend this to anyone with a sense of humor.

And you thought being a zombie was a bad thing. Imagine how easy meditation is when you are dead. And those pesky choices we have to make on a day to day basis? When you are dead, it all boils down to "How can I best eat you?" This was not as funny as I wished it would be, but it was good for more than few laughs.

Reviewed for MonsterLibrarian Kenemore's style is laugh-out-loud hilarious and oddly encouraging. This is, in part, a serious self-help book and also an enjoyable, sarcastic farce. Loaded with humorous graphics its an essential for hardcore zombie lovers (or anyone who needs less stress and more brain eating in their lives). The Zen of Zombie is definitely a gift-style book. If it's your style you should definitely own it, not borrow, so its value to public collection is limited to those with very popular zombie theme sections. Contains: Bad (and good) puns, comic gore & violence

Zen of Zombie is a great book to give as a gift for anyone who loves zombies or for that matter any horror fan. It is actually very entertaining to read ,but I dont think that you should actually use it as a self help book...unless you want to start the zombie apocolypse. I bought this book first for myself, but have found that IK've bought several more copies as gifts for friends.

Love Zombies and Humor. This is just a fun read that makes you laugh. I love picking up and reading a page here and there for a chuckle!

This book is awsome! It's not like most motivaitional books that try to pursue you to reach goals and be someone that your not. This book helps you be who you should be with a slice of humor on every page!!! Must Read!!!

I gifted this to my deployed husband to give him something light to read. Sadly, he was not amused by anything beyond the title. It is poorly written and not engaging.
