"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

What did you like best about this story?
I loved everything about this book. The author presents the issues that children of domestic violence face in a raw, realistic manner with the utmost compassion and empathy. This book will be an absolute GODSEND for anyone who grew up in a violent home. It puts the problems we face into perspective and gives practical truths to overcoming the adverse effects of violence. This book helped me in a moment when I desperately needed it. I recommend it to anyone!

One of the Best Books I've Ever Read
Would you listen to Invincible again? Why?
Ive listened to this book twice and have told everyone who has ever had a problem understanding how childhood domestic violence affects their adult relationships.
Who was your favorite character and why?
My favorite character was was the young man who chose not to kill his mother's abuser, Keith. Keith was a constant antagonist who tried to bait the young man into harming him by beating up his mom and taunting him in the police department. I enjoyed the entire book but I'm glad the young man (everyone will know who he is once they read the book) chose not to shoot his mother's abuser and alter the rest of his life.
What about the narrators’s performance did you like?
I loved the narrator's energy.
Any additional comments?
I'm a fan of the author's writing and can't wait to read the rest of his books
