10 Minutes To Live: Surviving an Active Shooter Using A.L.I.V.E.®
Active shooter mass killings have become a horrible reality in our society and no place is immune to them.
In this book, Michael Julian, CPI, PPS, CSP shares how essential the appropriate actions you take in the first ten minutes of an active shooting can be for your survival. How every second counts to stay alive.
Julian provides simple tools to help you in the event you find yourself in this type of scenario. He teaches you how to prepare yourself using a security mindset, and fight through your fear with a survival mindset so you can evaluate your situation and react appropriately.
Specifically, Julian shows you how to:
- Become more aware of your surroundings,
- Prepare for such an event by being “proactively reactionary”,
- Evaluate an active shooter situation more quickly and efficiently,
- Decide and take the best action necessary for your survival,
- Dominate the attacker, if necessary, using a kill or be killed mentality,
- Navigate the chaos that comes after the event, and
- Train family, friends, and coworkers how to do the same.
Julian’s insight helps you prepare for the worst. This alone could be the difference between life and death in the face of a horrific experience.
About the Author

“My 13 year old read the book. She loved it! She had been worried about something happening at school. She said she’s not afraid anymore because she’s prepared. I gave one to a client today because she has 2 high school aged kids. I also gave one to my next door neighbor, a lady who is in charge of safety for a large company in SD. It was good PR for me, a good way to reach out to my community. I’m always looking for something of value to promote, everyone loves the book!” – Betty Hall
“I just read Michael Julian, CPI PPS CSP’s book “10 Minutes To Live”. This book is well written, well researched, cited and yet easy to read and comprehend. It isn’t a stale scholastic book on concept. It is an educational, read and apply now manual for thinking through and surviving an active shooter event. His approach goes beyond the accepted “Run, Hide, Fight” and walks the reader through a mindset approach to surviving mass killing events. Regardless of background or experience, the author’s simple and direct approach speaks volumes to the reader. The book is a must read for security professionals and loved ones alike. It does well to help explain why and how mentally preparing now is simple survivability insurance in both corporate and personal settings. Well done!”
