I wonder if Glenn has had his coffee yet.

After all, when you’re talking about survival guides it seems odd to omit classics like The Zombie Survival Guide (now in flashcard form!). And I still have to somehow acquire How To Survive a Robot Uprising. Wilson’s Where’s My Jetpack? looks fun, too.

Finishing up, I heartily recommend Pocket Guide To The Apocalypse: The Official Field Manual For The End Of The World: it’s not really a field manual, but it does have the singular virtue of containing a general analysis of the various threads of Western eschatological thinking by somebody who doesn’t hate evangelical Christians.  So I guess that it is a field manual, only not for the stated purpose.

[UPDATE] I have been properly dinged for not including How to Build a Robot Army: Tips on Defending Planet Earth Against Alien Invaders, Ninjas, and Zombies; let me head off future criticisms at the pass by also including How to Rule the World: A Handbook for the Aspiring Dictator and How to Be a Villain: Evil Laughs, Secret Lairs, Master Plans, and More!!!.  These kinds of books have pretty long subtitles, huh?
