The "New Vampire"...

The Complete Idiot's Guides® have explored the world of vampires, werewolves, the paranormal, and now the latest book in the "creepy" series is, 'The Complete Idiot's Guide® to Zombies'. This book brings the world of zombies chillingly to life - in a manner of speaking - covering everything readers need to know about them. The book includes:

? The voodoo zombie, the viral zombie, and the whole zombie family

? What zombies and the delicious fear of them say about human psychology

? Zombies in American culture: in film, from Romero classics to the 'Living Dead' flicks that are so bad they're good, and in fiction, video games, comics, and more!

? The zombie survival phenomenon - of course they're not 'real', but that doesn't stop people from having loads of fun pretending they are.
