BOOK REVIEW: ALIEN INVASION MANUAL / AUTHOR: SEAN T. PAGE / PUBLISHER: J. H. HAYNES & CO LTD / RELEASE DATE: OUT NOW

Sean T. Page has produced this latest Haynes Manual on behalf of the Ministry of Alien Defence. Sean is well qualified, having been abducted as a child and surviving the ordeal to gain a GCSE grade D in Physics. Alien Invasion Manual is a well-illustrated hardback that would sit well on the shelf of any underground alien resistance group member. It would also make a handy companion to other Haynes Manuals, such as the Zombie Survival Manual released in 2013.

The book covers a good range of useful topics, including an alien 101, a history of alien conflict (pre and post-World War II, protocols for first contact and alien combat suggestions grouped by the type of alien. There is also a section for military forces, betraying the books ministerial background. All the way through there are plenty of visuals and the topics are easy to study. The subjects are of necessity, covered briefly, and links to supporting websites would have been useful.

Not only is the book a good read but has two exams at the back, which will reinforce your home study, testing both basic and advanced level. There are also cut-out certificates that can be proudly displayed on the wall of your secret HQ.

No matter how good the manual, it can be no substitute for proper training, such as that offered by the Ministry of Alien Defence. That said, this book does give a good grounding for the would-be defender of humanity, giving many new uses for tinfoil and, as a last resort, is stout enough to act as a ray-gun shield in a last resort.

A recommended gift for all those with an eye to the skies this Christmas.
