Not to be a stick in the mud you - but Max Brooks wrote a few books along the same idea.

en.wikipedia.org...

I suggest buying and reading it, then if you think you can add a new spin on the idea then go for it - but the market is already covered with lots of similar books.

Do you believe in zombies? If you don't - why would you put your time and effort in writing a book about it?

Who cares if someone wrote a similar book, I'm sure there are a billion ways to tackle a zombie invasion.

I guess due to their lower intelligence and that funny shuffle they do, simple traps such as trip wire alarms and even beartraps could be effective.

Lots of bear-traps setup like mouse traps during the day around your property, then replaced at sunrise and before sunset?

Get a Zombie proof house. They actually do exist.

This article explains how it works.

Surviving a Zombie apocalypse.

1. Get as many survivors as you can, and head to the nearest Food Superstore you can.
2. Rush In together, killing any Zombies In there, get rid of the body's so avoid the smell.
3. Block/Baricade any entrances and exsist's.
4. Survive for as long as you can on the bottled water, and canned food.
5. When all runs out, repeat process.

There, book done.

If you're looking for the way zombies act, watch doctor who's the empty child. Then zombie movies, I think the don't touch the bloody zombies or you'll turn into them is simple

Yep my son and husband have read them. Must be a guy thing. Not feelin it myself. Who started this whole obsession with zombie apocalypse anyway??? It seems like a B-movie concept.

you should write a strategy for reclaiming the planet. everyone's discussed personal survival tactics and weapons, but i don't think anyone has talked about completely defeating the zombies. even if you start by clearing a walled in town and set up shop.

if we're talking classic slow zombies, and you're on a high vantage point, fire is the most effective way to clear out massive amounts of them, provided you do it carefully. remember dawn of the dead when they're on the mall roof and there are thousands below? a molotov cocktail made from your standard liquor bottle could kill 6-10. throw some gas filled water balloons, then one molotov cocktail and you could kill a hundred pretty quickly. bullets should be saved for sticky situations and clearing out the last few.

you could write several chapters outlining survival techniques depending on the area. towns, cities, wilderness etc.

Definitely go with the AA12 fully auto shotgun with drum mag. It shoots 300 rounds a minute.

Maybe throw in some of the grenade rounds for good measure, you can never be too careful with zombies.

Learning how to spell and use punctuation would be a good start otherwise your book is going to be neither use nor ornament.

Secondly, find some proof that there is such a thing as zombies apart from in the movies.

Monsters don't exist, but Steven King wrote about them......

The movie Zombieland had some good points in it. I personally think as far as a weapon shotgun close to medium range, and rifle medium long range. I would only use a sidearm if necessary in a zombie situation. Also what type of outbreak scenario are you going for? What would be the type of zombie? Are we talking Shaun of the dead zombies, or Dawn of the dead zombies, or maybe Resident Evil? The type of zombie is going to play heavy on your tactic.
Maybe that could be the angle for your book. Do a book covering all the tactics for the wide range of possible zombie outbreaks.

Maybe the better thing to do would be to get a real zombie and
figure out the best way to kill it,.
ya know study it,.... learn it.. then KILL IT.
Of course that is if in fact they were real

I'm confused, is this comedy ? if you really feel zombies are a threat ask yourself if surviving is even desirable. many japanese wish they were taken by the tsunami. I mean a real zombie outbreak is global, right ? why would you even want to survive ? you're going to run out of ammo or get caught sleeping eventually

go out with style, maybe drive a car bomb into zombie central and blow it up

HOw can you possibly prepare for this?
No one knows how it would be, for instance, how do you know they would be stupid slow moving zombies?
What about how the infection spreads? is it air borne? does it pass in fluids?
What if even shooting the thing in the head does not stop it?
What if George A Romero becomes a super zombie and hits people with stage lights?
