The Blurb

It’s not easy being a parent these days. There are bills to pay. Kids to feed. And hordes of undead monsters to keep at bay.

There are plenty of guides out there about how to survive the zombie apocalypse. All of them assume readers are young, fit, and unencumbered by children. In that scenario, the only living humans left will be smug, outdoorsy Millennials. That’s hell on earth, even without the zombies.

Only Dead on the Inside is the answer for the rest of us.

Written by professional comedy writer and amateur father-of-four James Breakwell (@XplodingUnicorn), Only Dead on the Inside blends traditional parenting advice with zombie survival tips, bringing together two totally unrelated genres in a book no one asked for but everyone needs.

This step-by-step manual teaches you how to raise happy, healthy children in a world overrun by the undead. Motivated moms and dads want it all, and that won’t change at the end of the world. There’s no reason you can’t be a zombie killing machine AND parent of the year, but you have to work for it.

If you want to make sure your family is apocalypse-ready, Only Dead on the Inside is your best–and only–chance at survival. No pressure, but if you don’t read this book, your children will die.

The Review

I really love James Breakwell’s tweets. He and his family are hilarious. I chuckle so much reading about their daily exploits and the hilarious thoughts of his children. Therefore, I was excited to read Only Dead on the Inside – A Parent’s Guide to Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse.

It was a very fun book which poses the scenario of how to survive an apocalypse. Now, I know without a shadow of a doubt that I would not survive but now I feel slightly better equipped. Alas, I do not have kids so I won’t be able to use some of the tricks that may one day save my life.

If you are genuinely looking for a survival guide then it is a great start. Let’s face it, there aren’t many out there. If you are looking for a book that will make you giggle then pick it up. It is funny.

Only Dead on the Inside – A Parent’s Guide to Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse by James Breakwell is available now.
