The true story of the NFL's oldest rookie In 1976, Vince Papale was thirty, a former schoolteacher and part-time bartender, and a season ticket-holder for his beloved Philadelphia Eagles. When he heard that Coach Dick Vermeil was holding open tryouts, he decided to give it a shot. Shocking himself and the coaches, he ran an explosive 40-yard-dash in just 4.5 seconds--a world-class time--and was offered a contract on the spot. When he joined the team, Papale became the oldest non-kicking rookie in NFL history, a fan favorite who played for four years and was named a team captain. Invincible is Vince Papale's story, and a tie-in to the Disney Pictures film of the same name starring Mark Wahlberg as Papale and Greg Kinnear as Vermeil. But more than just a tie-in, it tells Papale's story in his own words, covering subjects not included in the film. Like Rudy, Glory Road, and Rookie, it is the true story of an ordinary man who achieves an extraordinary goal.

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. Invincibleseeks 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 those who grew up with domestic violence, but also provides proven strategies everyone can use to reclaim their lives and futures. '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 the foreword by Tony RobbinsThe author is donating all net royalties to the Childhood Domestic Violence Association. '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, bestselling author and Peal Performance strategist 'Attention-grabbing and revealing, giving us insight into the world of CDV. It will be a valuable tool for our staff and New York City's most vulnerable population - its children.' Trevor M. Johns, acting associate commissioner, NYC Administration for Children's Services 'Martin's kindness shines through this book. And though many purported self-help books often have the stench of the obvious - House too cluttered? Throw out stuff! Overweight? Eat less, move more! - Invincible has the air of honesty and hard work, and the feeling of someone who wants to help. It is not easy reading. It is not pleasant reading. But for anyone who grew up in a violent household, it could very well be the most important reading.' NJ.com

The Fault in Our Stars meets Go Ask Alice in this dramatic romance about a teenage girl who survives a terminal cancer diagnosis, only to get trapped in the deadly spiral of addiction. Fans of Gayle Forman and Sara Zarr will be swept away by this gritty romance, the first in a duology. Evie is living on borrowed time. She was diagnosed with terminal cancer several months ago and told that by now she’d be dead. Evie is grateful for every extra day she gets, but she knows that soon this disease will kill her. Until, miraculously, she may have a second chance to live. All Evie had wanted was her life back, but now that she has it, she feels like there’s no place for her in it—at least, not for the girl she is now. Her friends and her parents still see her as Cancer Girl, and her boyfriend’s constant, doting attention is suddenly nothing short of suffocating. Then Evie meets Marcus. She knows that he’s trouble, but she can’t help falling for him. Being near him makes her feel truly, fully alive. It’s better than a drug. His kiss makes her feel invincible—but she may be at the beginning of the biggest free fall of her life.

An old flame rekindles in this fan-favorite tale from New York Times bestselling author Joan Johnston… Wealthy aristocrat Bella Benedict has one last wish: to see her five estranged children happily married. But one of her sons, Max Benedict, has no interest in long-term commitment. Instead, he travels the world, working as a sometime spy for the CIA but mostly cementing his reputation as a rich playboy. When he's asked to investigate a foreign threat against the president, he doesn't think twice about accepting—until he hears who he'll be working with in London. FBI Special Agent Kristin Lassiter is under investigation and on the verge of losing everything—her savings, her job, her beloved father. So when Bella Benedict approaches her with an offer to pay her mounting debts, she's tempted to accept. But there's a catch, and a big one. Bella wants Kristin to win the heart of her playboy son Max—the very man who broke Kristin's heart years ago and is unaware that he fathered her nine-year-old daughter. If Kristin succeeds, she'll get the money she needs. But can she win Max's heart without falling back in love with him?

If you are searching for a book that will really make you feel something read Invincible. Calling Invincible a book of poetry does not come close to describing the remarkable collection of writing that stretches from cover to cover in this book. Romantic passages so touching that reading them is like being hand delivered a dozen roses; revolutionary raging so brilliantly scathing that it fearlessly slices into the heart of controversial subjects with laser-like precision; tributes that paint unforgettable literary portraits of icons like Nelson Mandela, Michael Jackson, Kurt Cobain, Barack Obama, and Earth, Wind & Fire; sizzling literary pieces so intensely sensual they can be used as aphrodisiacs for an evening of unbridled pleasure; and much more await you inside Invincible. After reading Invincible you will come away with your own favorites among the pieces found within, but surely among them will be "And The gods Made Love"; "Woman"; "You're Nobody Til Somebody Hates You"; "Tell Me How You Want It"; "Disposable Nation"; Gimme The Mic"; and "Invincible." This is a book that explores love, life, sensuality, social activism, fame, the depths of the human heart, the mysterious workings of the mind, and the roads we take that lead us to the dreams and aspirations that touch and are touched by us all. As he did in his first book Trojans, with Invincible, writer Tensiongentry will take you on a joyous literary ride that will leave you breathless from the beauty, mastery, and truth etched into its passionate and powerful words.

Invincible by Amy Lawrence: A gripping insider's account of how Bergkamp, Henry, Vieira and Pires became the first team in 100 years to go the entire season undefeated 2014 Writer of the Year, Football Supporters' Federation 'This book is so full of exclusive interviews you'll soon feel like part of the squad. A worthy tribute to one of English football's best ever teams, it makes you long for one more game at Highbury' Shortlist 'Unbeatable insight' Henry Winter, Daily Telegraph In 2003-04, a team that played with lightning speed and lustrous skill fulfilled Wenger's lifelong dream - to go a whole season unbeaten. They pushed and inspired each other, bringing the best out of strong characters like Jens Lehmann, a self-styled 'Mad German', Sol Campbell, an intense competitor, Robert Pirès, an instant friend if you give him a football, Patrick Vieira, a soft-spoken, battle-hardened captain, Gilberto, a thoughtful Brazilian, Thierry Henry, a supremely gifted and obsessed scorer and creator, and Dennis Bergkamp, the perfectionist conductor. Based on exclusive player interviews, and with a foreword and afterword by Arsene Wenger, this definitive book allows the Invincibles to tell their own story. Football writer Amy Lawrence weaves together the team's recollections, and the testimonies of other key players and protagonists around the club, to relive the pivotal games and moments. From the battle of Old Trafford to jubilation at White Hart Lane, from training ground sparks to dressing room revelations, readers will go behind closed doors, onto the pitch, and into the players' minds to understand the teamwork and the psychology to go unbeaten. Published in time for the 10-year anniversary, this is a must-have read for any Arsenal fan. It will be enjoyed by readers of memoirs by Dennis Bergkamp and Tony Adams, and will also appeal to football fans everywhere who enjoy classic sports books such as The Damned United. Amy Lawrence has watched football avidly since her first trip to Highbury at the age of six, and has written about it, mostly for the Guardian and the Observer, for twenty years. She lives in London.
