In•vin•ci•ble: incapable of being overcome

“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).

Quotes & Awards

  • “I have never shared the fact that I was a child of domestic violence. And, if I had not met Brian Martin, I don’t know if I would have. What appeals to me most about Brian’s approach is that it is based on empowerment. Our experiences as children living with domestic violence have given us the equipment—a secret weapon if you will—to overcome all kinds of obstacles in our lives. It means we are notvictims, we are victorious.”

    Tony Robbins

  • Invincible has the air of honesty and hard work, and the feeling of someone who wants to help. For anyone who grew up in a violent household, it could very well be the most important reading.”

    Star Ledger (Newark)

  • “Packed with inspirational stories of those who through courage and compassion have transformed their lives, this is a helpful book for anyone who grew up living with domestic violence. It shows that it is possible to overcome the obstacles of a childhood filled with violence and move forward.”

    Stephen Joseph, author of What Doesn’t Kill Us: The New Psychology of Posttraumatic Growth
