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
Michael Julian, CPI, PPS, CSP, has made a career of providing private investigation and security services since the mid 1980’s. A licensed private investigator and security company owner in multiple states, Julian is trained in asset and executive protection, behavioral threat assessment of active shooters, covert protection, aviation security, surveillance and surveillance detection, and more.
In 1967, Julian’s first important mentor, his father Ron Julian, founded their company, National Business Investigations (NBI). Thirty years later, he took over his father’s role, expanding NBI to provide security services for individuals, events, communities, and businesses. Thus, MPS Security & Protection was born.

“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!”

10 Minutes To Live, is chock full of small bits of intense but necessary information that everyone must know to survive an active shooter situation. Michael Julian has packed this small easy to read book with common sense and practical approaches on how to stay ALIVE! In today's world this knowledge is not an option it is absolutely essential !
There is so much information in Ten minutes to live, the message is impactful and important. I'd recommend this book to everyone, its alarming, but empowering.
The information contained within this book will help save peoples lives. It is a simple process to follow and might be alarming to some people but the bottom line is that if you want to stay alive and other options such as hiding fail you may have to use violence against the aggressor to save your life and the lives of others. I am a 30 year security veteran and recommend the contents of this book to help keep you alive. We all practice defensive driving and many seek CPR certification "in case we need it" But in today's difficult environment we must also be prepared and trained for the possibility of an active killer. The book can save your life and the training seminar is amazing as well. This may very well be the most useful book you will ever read!
Unfortunately, most people wouldn't know what to do if they found themselves in an active shooter crisis. Of the very select few who do, almost none take the time to share that information with others. Of those scarce folk, most can't teach it and definitely don't give people the crucial knowledge in the succinct, hyper effective package that they need to save their own lives. That's the bad news.
The good news? Michael Julian. He brings decades of experience in the security, protection, and investigation industries to the table, mixed with years of study on the subject, and an unmatched passion for teaching people how to survive. I am honored to know such a great man, and if you ever get the chance to learn from him - in ANY capacity - do it immediately. His knowledge will save your life if you ever find yourself in such a dire situation as an active shooter event, and you have a moral obligation to yourself and your family to learn what Michael teaches.
Do not think. Do not wait. Invest in your safety and protection before the unthinkable happens to you or your family. You can always make more money once you've invested it, but you can never get your life or the lives of your children, parents, and other loved ones back once they are taken from you.
Act now - you never know what will happen.
I recommend everyone to read this book, easy to read and understand! It can actually save your life..
