It's every bit as awesome as it sounds. Max Brooks is the son of Mel Brooks, of 'Blazing Saddles' fame. I got my copy at Barnes and Noble. For some reason, it was in the humor section. Apparently not being ripped apart by the undead hordes is a joke to some people.

But if you do a google search, I'm sure you can find some way to order it online. Try amazon.

There's also a sequel called "World War Z."

Read it if you value your life, and the lives of those around you.

I've heard of World War Z, that was a book I wanted to buy! I am going to go off to the bookstore soon and buy them both! Hooray!
