Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Zombies
Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. It reads like a toaster instruction manual. If that is your idea of fun, go for it. The content seems ok if you can slog through it. I would rather read another book for a second time than keep reading this. Excellent book on Zombies in movies, books and history - especially if you don't know anything about Zombies.
One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. I bought this book for my son for his birthday. He is a huge zombie fan and I thought this looked fun. The book is full of random information and things you might need to know or do. It is written in a style that keeps it interesting and gives you survival ideas and tips. I suggest this book for all zombie fans as a fun and informative read. One person found this helpful. If you even have a slight interest in zombies, you should read this.

They are nothing more than the personification of our own failings come back from the dead to eat us out of existence before we screw things up any more than we have already.

Writer and philosopher Ayn Rand famously observed that modern man is an abject zombie on a forced march through a meaningless life, and she may have a point. Correspondingly, global job satisfaction is at its lowest point in more than two decades, with the younger generations leading the pack in unhappiness. We get uninspiring jobs to pay the rent. We work our whole lives to no real end. We get laid off. We find new uninspiring jobs that are pretty much the same as the old ones. We sit in traffic and wonder how it came to this. Another zombie bites the dust.
Jan 02, Valerie rated it liked it Shelves: This book was surprisingly delightful. There are tons of Max Brooks wannabes out in the world shelling out theories and rehashing old jokes, but this book is different. Also Max Brooks wrote the forward, and if he approves it, it passes any zombie-related test. Did I mention Max Brooks once called me "sweetheart" at a convention and I got a bit of the vapors?
Mogk looks at zombies through the lenses of neuroscience, biology, disaster preparedness, and pop This book was surprisingly delightful. Mogk looks at zombies through the lenses of neuroscience, biology, disaster preparedness, and pop culture. You have a little fun with zombie hypotheticals while learning interesting facts about neuroscience, biology, disaster preparedness, and pop culture.

That's the real reason this book is enjoyable instead of pages of parody. It is well researched, using zombies as a focus for a wide range of discussions. The only part that was eye-rolling was when he discussed "suspected zombie outbreaks" of the past and mentioned Roanoke a mystery for which circumstantial evidence is pretty high that it is not mystery and the Anasazi cliff dwellers. It's all fun and games until you start putting actual historical events in the context of zombies. Otherwise though, this book is a fun way to absorb facts and theorize about my personal favorite monster, although it does make me reevaluate my chances of actually surviving the apocalypse.
Jan 14, Heather Clitheroe rated it liked it Shelves: Not bad - a decent overview of zombie culture and lore, though the inclusion of Cormac McCarthy's The Road in his research is an obvious misstep. A good companion to Max Brooks' books. A little more coverage on The Walking Dead would have been appropriate. Surprisingly, he misses Les Revenants altogether - though it is a lesser known zombie film, Not bad - a decent overview of zombie culture and lore, though the inclusion of Cormac McCarthy's The Road in his research is an obvious misstep.
Surprisingly, he misses Les Revenants altogether - though it is a lesser known zombie film, it's not entirely obscure, and should have been included as an example of the non-traditional zombie film. As well, mention of I Am Legend is made, but without much of any reference to Matheson's book and the notion that the afflicted characters - much more analogous to vampires than zombies - were also suffering from mass hysteria that caused them to fear for example crucifixes and holy water.
Hit and miss, really. There are some excellent sections on preparedness and survival, and an interesting analysis on post-apocalyptic survival odds in various locations. It's still an enjoyable book, and well-illustrated - the 'know your zombie' insets are really well done. May 23, Toby rated it really liked it. Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Zombies is a truly excellent guide to zombies that covers all the bases in just enough detail to satisfy your, and is now my favourite book in my zombie library.
Unlike many other zombie texts which suffer from the over-inflated ego of the authors who like to put forward their own theories and ideas as widely accepted gospel. There is, of course, a lot more depth that one could go into, but for that I would recommend reading more specialist books. However, with some intelligent thought behind it, this book has enough content to turn a zombie virgin into something of an expert. EYEWTKAZ is an excellent book for any zombie fan, anyone wanting to understand the concept and appeal of zombies, and also an excellent present for pretty much anyone.
Mar 07, Jon Bauer rated it it was ok Shelves: For discussing the effects of zombies on pop culture, it's relevant. For discussing the origins of the zombie mythology, it's informative. It makes a mockery of science. Mogk wields it like some pimpled junior high-er who found some bitchin science article but is simply unable to understand its context.
I think the only way this book is valuable as a means to preparing for the "Zombie Apocalypse" is if the probability for i For discussing the effects of zombies on pop culture, it's relevant. I think the only way this book is valuable as a means to preparing for the "Zombie Apocalypse" is if the probability for it didn't approach zero. Just because something has a "probability" doesn't mean it's worth considering.
In calculus when a probability approaches zero, it is regarded as zero. Mogk was doing fine until he tried to bring a movie monster collectively the walking dead are a singular entity up as a realistic prospective threat. He does the institution of science a great disservice by recklessly wielding it. Nov 09, Steph rated it liked it Shelves: Very, very bizarre but nevertheless entertaining book. Given the extent of the author's involvement in cataloging the zombie lexicon, it may well be the latter.
I did appreciate the nuggets of scientific, historical, and survivalist knowledge Mogk threw in, and the whimsical and somewhat mishmash-y way it all blended together. The one thing that gnawed at me pun inte Very, very bizarre but nevertheless entertaining book. The one thing that gnawed at me pun intended, ha ha was the author's zombie-elitist tone. Ironic or not, it comes across as a bit insufferable, and is the only reason I knocked a star off the four stars this book would otherwise deserve. Aug 15, Michelle rated it really liked it.
This book was pretty good! It covers zombie history and development, its place in popular culture, references, zombie-like animals, and more. Of course, as it should be, there is a lot of allusion to George Romero and Night of the Living Dead. Throughout the book you find little icons with Romero's face and a snippet about his thoughts on certain aspects of zombie culture.
I thought this book was easy to read, i This book was pretty good! I thought this book was easy to read, informative, entertaining, and interesting. I would love to someday get my own copy for my shelves, as I got this copy from the library. Recommended reading for anyone who loves or is interested in zombies.

They are here and now. They are the painful reality of what we must suffer in this life. Simply put, they are the most compelling, relevant, and enduring monster of the last half century.

Because of their popularity, though, Mogk worries that zombies will get exploited. Fanboys looking for a complete guide to gross-out zombie movies will be disappointed, but anyone interested in speculative science and pop culture will find much to think about in the book. The book was even sharp enough to earn a nomination this month as a finalist for the Bram Stoker Award for Nonfiction. Glycoprotein — what inspired and madcap genius. Thank you for this review.
