The book was a real pain to purpose inspiration. For fund true purpose one must endure. If you ever question your own circumstances and trials asking "why me?" This book challenged my belief of what overcoming against all odds truly means.
I already had the book in my Kindle library, but I wanted to include the audio narration to my library. This was quite a story and a fitting tribute to the subject of it. After reading and listening to the narration. I find my trials and tribulations fairly easy to overcome in comparison to what Adam Brown (SOC) endured. I will refrain from revealing anything beyond this point and only urge readers to pick this book up: especially now as memorial day approaches. The narrator was quite good. As it is with audiobooks, you take what you are given and the narration sounded fine with male voices nonetheless it did come off as a little strange when he tried mimicing the female characters. This is a minor point and did not detract from an otherwise enjoyable book.
Not to discredit books like American Sniper or lone Survivor, I can honestly say this is the best SEAL story I've heard thus far. I also am a recovering addict and after hearing Adam's story I know it's possible to leave the past in past and accomplish anything I put my mind to.
Yes, but maybe several years from now.
I loved hearing about Adam Brown and the SEAL team. Very genuine and authentic
Well, I didn't care for the narration, especially when he tried to speak like Adam's wife and mother..... but other than that it was okay
Not sure.... I love Adam's entire life story. I love how he gave himself to his Lord, his wife and kids and his team.
As a non American listener with an agnostic view on god I must say the story is really captivating and good. A story about one man who lost his way but came back stronger than ever, being a role model to live by. Devout father, husband and warrior in the SEAL community. As I listened to the part where the number 24 is mentioned, a drum with the label 224 rolls by on the conveyor belt. It made me think of Adam. Your sacrifice will not be forgotten. Sincerely, Kris from Sweden.
Triumph & heartbreak. I'm a military spouse and this book made me cry tears of joy and tears of heartbreaking pain. Adam Brown makes me proud to be an American and inspires me to be a better spouse, parent, and person.
Inspirational, Hopefilled, Relateable
That as failed as we all are as human beings, this story gives anyone hope for rising above our failures.
I have not, but very impressed with his unbiased reporting of the story.
It gave me unbelievable hope for my life and I cried for about a week.
A must read, more than just a typical seal team 6 hero, but a human hero.
I have read every Navy seal book written. There are some really good ones, there is an one that I have not liked. All of the books this one is my favorite. Every aspect an element of this book and of Adams life was dialed in inspire me to be better at everything I do
