Mass Shootings: Six Steps to Survival

Examining nearly 60 mass shootings that have occurred in the United States since 1982, this book focus in on the actions taken and decisions made by those who survived these horrific attacks. 

Screen Shot 2013-04-01 at 6.26.36 PMArmed with this new information, the old axiom “fight or flight” is dispelled or at least modified for this new breed of killer. Fight by yourself and you are almost assuredly going to join the ranks of victims if not the overall body count; flee and present a target for the killer or draw his attention, and the chances are you will not make it out alive. 

Based on actual case histories, Mass Shootings: Six Steps to Survival, will provide every person with the information and techniques they need in order to have a fighting chance in the most horrifying of active shooter situations.
