I've been encouraging everyone I talk to to read this book, even those that don't have an interest in military books, this one is one of my new favorite reads of all time.
The whole experience of Adam Brown in his early years was very humbling. It was astounding what the man accomplished and the support he got from his wife and family.
A story of remarkable bravery even after going to the depths of despair. Adam Brown is a hero who should be celebrated. It is also heart wrenching. Definitely worth hearing.
This is a fabulous story about a young man who absolutely hit rock bottom and the story of his climb to the elite of the elite the military Navy SEALs.
The author sets out not to tell another story about elite military operators but rather the story of a man from youth, as a young adult, and then finally as elite warrior. The struggles, the successes and ultimately the highest priced one can pay for our freedom.

This is a wonderful book! I think every American should read this book to understand the freedom we have. Adam Brown was a great soldier and an amazing person. His strength and foundation of his faith are truly inspiring.
I'm Irish and proud of it! Father of three beautiful girls, USAF veteran, 25 years in Social Services! Carpe Diem
Yes, the human element. The struggles and tribulations this young man endured! Truly a special individual.
House to house
The entire personality of this warrior
Yes, towards the end when his fellow warriors escorted his body and the salutations at the funeral servilce
Just an incredible story of one man's struggle on and off missions. His faith in god is awe inspring
Adams true character and unbelievable desire and willpower to overcome any and all obstacles to accomplish his goals.
I love how the book was about Adams whole life with all it's trial and errors and not just his time in the SEALs.
He did a good job
It was very hard to stop listening. I put in my ear buds and turned it on every chance I got.
This books provides a much more accurate picture of what a Navy SEAL really is. They are the most elite warriors in the world and not well trained mindless killing machines. They are elite warriors that know when to dial it up or dial it down depending on what the situation calls for and can show compassion for their fellow man. American or not. They are a breed apart from the rest of us.
Suggested by my husband, couldn't put it down. ..WOW! I laughed, I cried. Fortunatel to have had so many people stand by him and allow him to become the incredible person he was.Thank you Adam Brown for your sevice!!
I really enjoyed this book. I loved that the author told his story from the beginning and not some where in the middle. It is great to see how God can touch and change a life, and through that one life he can change so many others for good.
There is an issue with how the audio was recorded. The first part of a word on a new sentence is cut-off because the mic kicks in too late. Words that start with letters like "T" or "Y" and unfortunately "A" (as in Adam) gets cut off. When the narrator speaks instead of hearing "The mother of Adam" you will hear something like "ha mother of Adam" or Instead of hearing "Adam met up with his friends, and..." you will hear "Dam met up with his friends" I kept going back thinking, "what was that? Who is Damn?" To figure out this recording is a mess. It got to a point where I could not take this poor quality audio any longer and returned to book.
