If you've ever questioned how useful Lorraine Kelly or a sheep would be in the midst of a zombie apocalypse* - or find The Zombie Survival Guide a little dry - then Dr. Dale's Zombie Dictionary is most surely the book for you. If you want to survive the forthcoming zombie holocaust, I'd fully recommend this be on your reading list. Written by zombie survival guru Dale Seslick, The Zombie Survival Guide comes on the back of a Fringe show and podcast. It's a service for the good of humanity, when you think of it. The Good Doctor's A-Z takes in topics you'd expect (Armour & Weapons) and a lot of ones you really wouldn't (the YMCA, um, Lorraine Kelly). The advice given is useful, informative (it's helped me no end in Dead Rising 2) and very funny. Despite there being a lot of jokes, Doctor Dale never sacrifices good advice for a punchline. Should it get the audience it deserves, this book will save a lot of lives. Horror fans will dig references to their favourite movies too - Dawn Of The Dead, Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus - whilst I really enjoyed the very British sense of humour and mentions of Emmerdale, of all things.
Unlike The Zombie Survival Guide, World War Z or some of its ilk, the book doesn't take itself too seriously. Take note Apocalypse 2012; just because the world is facing its Final Days doesn't mean we can't have a few laughs too. It's well illustrated throughout and a lot of fun. Everything a bit of good zombie literature should be, in fact.
Best of all: it comes with a full money back guarantee should you die by zombie within 30 days of its purchase.
* I would have said the sheep more than the Scot, but we won't hold that against the Doctor.
