Scott Kenemore wrote "The Zen of Zombie: Better Living Through the Undead", a not-so-normal take on how to approach life in a more peaceful way.

"Do you struggle out of bed each morning and sway lifelessly across the room, mouth agape, arms hanging slack, murmuring unintelligibly? Well, take heart: you’re not alone! But these other staggering, limp, perpetually drowsy folks just happen to be zombies — and it turns out they can teach us a lot about enjoying life. And only here, between the covers of this book, will you learn their secrets to happiness.

Learn how to slow down and move at your own pace, become your own boss, and just devour those irritating people who get in your way. And there’s more, because zombies can offer no-nonsense advice on love, playing to your strengths, and on becoming more adaptable."

As it says on his website "The invite said, 'Bring a Yoga Mat, Dress Like a Zombie'...we had no idea how many real zombies would attend." Lots did. And I think it's genius. Be sure to watch the documentary film as well that shows behind-the-scenes footage.
