“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 active shooter 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. This survival guide 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!”

When you think of the most important things in the world, what pops up? Family, friends, loved ones? If you're like me, the people in your life are the most important thing. And, if you're like me, you'll do anything you can to protect them, make sure they're safe, and do you best to keep yourself out of harm for their sake. In order to do that, you need training, and I cannot possibly give a higher recommendation for survival training than this book.
What makes it so much different than anything else out there is our grand instructor, Michael Julian. He is the kind of guy that not only commands such deep respect because of his own history and actions, but when you open yourself up to his teachings, you'll find yourself improving extremely quickly. He doesn't JUST teach the technical skills (which he does) or the specific steps to take in a survival situation (which he also does), but he captures the essence of the survival mindset so that YOU can think for yourself above and beyond and hypothetical. He gives you the fish AND teaches you how to fish at the same time, and that's a rarity.
I'm deeply grateful for everything that this book and the legend of a man behind it has taught me. I've passed along the information I've learned to every single family member that I know of (and that's a LOT of people). I wish I didn't have to, and that people were better than this. But unfortunately, the reality is that they're not, and we MUST be prepared to do what it takes to protect ourselves and our families in case of an emergency survival situation.
Do yourself a favor. Stop reading this review and purchase this book IMMEDIATELY. You never know when you're going to need this information. Do NOT wait any longer. It could literally be the difference between life and death.
I found the book very helpful. It helps change the mindset to that of living through it rather then hoping not to die.
Good training for Active Shooter Scenarios.
This book is a must read for everyone. Extremely well written and clear concepts to understand and learn, Mr. Julian has done an amazing job explaining and teaching a subject that is sad and scary. The reader will gain special insights and techniques to help them survive an active killer event.
