Examining nearly 80 mass shootings that have occurred in the United States since 1980, this book focuses on the actions taken and the decisions made by victims of these horrific attacks. Armed with this information, the old axiom “fight or flight” is dispelled. Fight by yourself, and you are almost assuredly going to join the ranks of the victims, if not the overall body count. Attempt to flee and present a target for the killer, and the chances are you will not make it out alive. Six Steps to Survival is an easy-to-understand model for every citizen.
