Apparently survival is a hot enough topic these days that there's not only room (read: profit) for publishers to release a thousand books about it, but enough room for them to release at least 4 survival books with the exact same name*. Even I am spending time talking about two of them. A few days ago it was the comical, comics-like, yet still pretty useful How to Survive Anything: A Visual Guide, and today it's the entirely unfunny, very real (albeit somewhat fantastical) survivalist's companion How to Survive Anything: From Animal Attacks to the End of the World (and everything in between).

Today's take on How to Survive Anything asks what you're going to do when the rest of the world succumbs to earthquakes, tornadoes, solar flares, meteor strikes, and...zombies. It then takes the liberty of answering the question for you. The all-purpose guide from Outdoor Life writers runs through the alphabet of potential disasters you'll face, and gives you practical advice on fighting, maneuvering, or just plain hiding through them. Also included are disaster preparedness tips--what to stash, what skills to learn, and why befriending the guy who blogs about armies of genetically-enhanced cats rising out of Antarctica to enslave the human world might not be such a bad idea.

*The other 2 I found are How to Survive Anything: Shark Attack, Lightning, Embarrassing Parents, Pop Quizzes, and Other Perilous Situations and How to Survive Anything, Anywhere: A Handbook of Survival Skills for Every Scenario and Environment.
