    Awesome book! Loved it
  • Lot's of fun with some good advice!

    By JimDeManche
    Max Brook's amazes me with the thoroughness of his imagination, fantasy, and attention to detail. Even though this book is an entertaining work of fiction, much of the advice could actually be applied to realistic scenarios, such as earthquakes, civil unrest, and similar conditions. Something nice to read,..late at night.

    By Bserbino.
    I read this after it being suggested to me by a friend. I loved WW Z and consider that to be one of the best fiction books of all time. This was a little slow, but worth the read. I do enjoy that his fiction is written as factual accounts. It is fun
