 —THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER, NOW IN PAPERBACK!—
FINALLY, THE WORLD WILL COME TO KNOWTHE TRUE STORYOF HOW DANGEROUSLY CLOSE THE HUMANRACE CAME TO ITS DEMISE
WORLD WAR ZAn Oral History of the Zombie War
By Max Brooks
“Zombies are among us — turn on your television if you don’t believe it. But, Brooks reassures usin this all-too-realistic novel, even today human fighters are hunting down the leftovers, and we’rewinning. Brooks seeds his mockumentary with smart nods to the chains of cause and effect thatspring from today’s headlines. A literate, ironic, strangely tasty treat.”
 — (Starred review)
Kirkus Reviews
 
“A horror fan’s version of Studs Terkel’s
The Good War
(1984). The interviews and personalaccounts capture the universal fear of the collapse of society. Horror fans won’t be disappointed;like George Romero’s
 Dead 
trilogy,
World War Z
is another milestone in the zombie mythology.”
 
 Booklist 
“The novel is hard to put down. The subtle, and not so subtle, jabs at various contemporarypoliticians and policies are an added bonus.” —
Publishers Weekly
 “Provocative and enthralling,
World War Z
is science fiction at its best. Brooks imbues the storywith a deep sense of humanity, a keen appreciation for detail, and a haunting perspective on theability—or not—of our governments, militaries, and other institutions to deal with worst-casescenarios.”
—Bradley Graham,
Washington Post 
military affairs correspondent
“Max Brooks has charted the folly of a disaster response based solely on advanced technologiesand brute force in this step-by-step guide to what happened in the Zombie War. Brooks’ accountof the path to recovery and reconstruction after the war is fascinating.
World War Z
provides uswith a starting point, at least, a basic blueprint from which to build a popular understanding of how, when, and why such a disaster came to be, and how small groups and individuals survived.”
 — Jeb Weisman, Ph.D., Director of Strategic Technologies, National Center for Disaster Preparedness
“After a heated bidding war with Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way, Brad Pitt’s Plan B walks off with the rights to Max Brooks’ tome
World War Z
. Plan B won out picking up the property for areported six against seven figures.”
The Hollywood Reporter

The end was near
. Zombies were taking over. They were infiltrating ever corner the world. No neutralground existed, no nation was secure, and we were in serious danger of becoming extinct — overrun byhordes of the living dead.
