“When you grow up living with domestic violence, witnessing those you love tear each other down with physical and verbal blows, your brain doesn’t know how to deal with that.”—From Invincible's Foreword by Tony Robbins

According to UNICEF, growing up with domestic violence is one of the most pervasive human rights violations in the world, affecting more than a billion people. Yet, too few people are aware of the profound impact it can have.

Invincible seeks to change this lack of awareness and understanding with a compelling look at this important issue, informing and inspiring anyone who grew up living with domestic violence—and those who love them, work with them, teach them, and mentor them.

Through powerful first-person stories, including the author’s own experiences, as well as insightful commentary based on the most recent social science and psychology research, Invincible not only offers a deeper understanding of the concerns and challenges of domestic violence, but also provides proven strategies everyone can use to reclaim their lives and futures.

What did you learn growing up with domestic violence? Do you know how this has had an impact on your life? How have you dealt with it?

Today, are there certain things about yourself that you wish weren’t true? Many of them aren’t. They are lies you learned.

Invincible exposes the lies, reveals the truths, and offers the insight and the skills you need to go from feeling and acting:

• Guilty to Free
• Resentful to Compassionate
• Sad to Grateful
• Angry to Passionate
• Hopeless to Guided
• Worthless to Accomplished
• Fearful to Confident
• Self-Conscious to Attractive
• Unloved to Loved

The truth is, no obstacle you will ever face can compare to what you went through as a child and have already conquered. The author is donating all net royalties to the Children of Domestic Violence Foundation (CDV).

The book crosses my mind daily, in one way or another, as I have been reading it. It was quite a time coming for me to start it. Now I'm listening to it and absorbing about half. And go back and read it to absorb the rest. It's painful. It makes me cry. I'm at the beginning of all this. Sort of. I’m 49. Others mentioned in this book are young, and it sounds like Brian Martin himself was young when he finally understood and recovered. That puts a hole in my heart. The title does not fit the good hearted message and encouragement he is trying to get across. For those who are trying to understand where all of the feelings, sadness, hurt, quilt, shame, self hate, and on... Invincible is Brian Martin and the others mentioned in this book. It was likely a very long hard road to get there. It has disoriented me and I struggle to get through it. My mind keeps going back to the title. Why can not I? lingers in my thoughts. I'm fearful and sad aware I may never understand. Live. Bring happiness to others. Have friends. Live rather than just sucking oxygen. On bad days. I'm getting through it though And taking the bits and pieces that help me now, in the present. There's more good than bad about this book. I was freaking out searching and searching for something on what I went through so I could understand it even if it was just a little bit. This is the first one I've come across. I can relate a little. a little is so much better than not relating at all. It would have really helped if this was the second or third book in a series that he wrote. It would have made a good ending for people recovering. Thank you Brian Martin for writing it and taking the initiative to reach out.

It was engaging and well told. Heavy subject matter. The author's take on the childhood pain that makes us strong and "invincible" was inspiring, but came off as a bit childlike to me.
