Summary

Here is a scientific look at zombies - and the ultimate guide to how the other half lives (or not). How fast and far would a zombie infection spread? What would a nutritionist say about an all-brain diet? Why are the undead so pissed off? Here are the answers to all of your essential zombie questions (you know you've asked them), with a lively, science-based exploration of every aspect of the undead.

The first book to examine the possible science of our undead brethren, from what a zombie brain looks like to why zombies don't get fat, this is a fact-based look at zombies through the lens of real science. It's a perfect gift for zombies (assuming they could read) and zombie-philes. Dripping with great zombie factoids and insights, The Proper Care and Feeding of Zombies will flesh out your understanding of the living dead.

Amusing way to incorporate zombies into life

What made the experience of listening to The Proper Care and Feeding of Zombies the most enjoyable?

The love the author has for zombies is clearly apparent by the way he weaves them into so many different aspects. From parasites on snails to insomniac, if you look hard enough, there's a link to zombie!

What did you like best about this story?

The factual information weaved into zombie tales and the links to well known zombie films

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A complete guide to keeping the undead.

Any additional comments?

I didn't like how the reader changed his voice to sound "nerdish" when quoting from scientific papers. It really wasn't necessary nor appropriate..
