The Author did a very good job of not inserting his own views but simply telling the story as it is. The story was a full autobiography and not just an account of service time or specific battles. It is an amazing story of someone who hit rock bottom and yet was able to climb above that to achieve greatness. An excellent read!!!
I love books with significance
We laughed, cried and applauded. A wonderfully written book. If someone you love has struggled with drugs you need to read this book of recovery and success. Not only did it cover the war it also covered the home front.
A MUST LISTEN
The ending offered the action that I was hoping to listen about. Having served in the military I could relate to the ongoings of the various emotions the families were feeling as well as the military personal.
He did great with various voices.
I didn't cry but it did bring some feelings of lost brothers in arms.
A must read for everyone. If you are not moved and inspired by this book, Your dead.
This book proves you can overcome anything.
This is my first listen to Paul Michaels and he and he was GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is one of those rare books in that the whole book moves you.
Do your self a favor and read (listen) to this book and you will walk away a better person.
Rarely do I read military related books that give you such insight on the main subject's private life; including the good, bad, & the ugly. Adam Brown's story hides nothing. Adam Brown's story is so sad yet uplifting that it left me feeling like I need to do a better job appreciating what I have in life. Adam Brown's story reinforces the belief of the faithful among us, that God has a plan for everyone and if we just listen and are determined to follow our faith; the Lord will provide. Adam Brown's strength & resilience could only be equaled by those in his support system; those who cared so deeply for him that they saw him through his darkest days & shared his proudest moments. "Fearless" will put your emotions through a roller coaster ride. Your patience will be tested, your adrenaline will be pumped, your heart will pound, your nerves will be shot, your eyes will swell, you will laugh, you may feel pain, your limits may even be met. One thing is for sure: you will have a greater appreciation and perspective on life by reading Adam Brown's story; a Real American Super-Hero.
Adam Brown is a true hero and awesome role model for everyone.
Eric Blehm tells Adam's story beautifully. It's very easy to understand and follow. I will be reading more of Eric Blehm's books.
It looked like a long book and I was fearful that it would be boring but it is not. I laughed and cried and would listen into the wee hours of the morning just because I didn't want to stop listening.
The author did a great job pulling out who Adam was and how he lived. This man goes from deep despair to flying like an eagle under the weight of the many things which would have stopped most people. Adam was a man that did not stop.
Having recently listened to Red Platoon, which I can't recommend highly enough, I wanted to listen to another tale about combat in Afghanistan, but very little of this book takes place there. At least a third of the book is about Adam's drug habit. Another third is spent praising god. If anything, this story proves that god has no favorites and prayer doesn't work. Adam was truly a courageous man who overcame monumental obstacles, and if the author had chosen to limit the time devoted to the all too common story about drug addiction and the near constant religiosity, this could have been a truly good book.
