Audie Award Nominee, Inspirational Nonfiction, 2013
Fearless takes you deep into SEAL Team SIX and straight to the heart of one of its most legendary operators.
When Navy SEAL Adam Brown woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn’t know he would die that night in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan - but he was ready: In a letter to his children, not meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote, “I’m not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me.”
Long before Adam Brown became a member of the elite SEAL Team SIX - the counterterrorism unit that took down Osama bin Laden - he was a fun-loving country boy from Hot Springs, Arkansas, whose greatest goal had been to wear his high school’s football jersey. An undersized daredevil, prone to jumping off roofs into trees and off bridges into lakes, Adam was a kid who broke his own bones but would never break a promise to his parents.
But after high school, Adam fell in with the wrong crowd, and his family watched as his appetite for risk dragged him into a downward spiral that eventually landed him in jail. Battling his inner demons on a last-chance road to redemption, Adam had one goal: to become the best of the best - a US Navy SEAL.
An absorbing chronicle of heroism and humanity, Fearless presents an indelible portrait of a highly trained warrior who would enter a village with weapons in hand to hunt terrorists, only to come back the next day with an armload of shoes and meals for local children. It is a deeply personal, revealing glimpse inside the SEAL Team SIX brotherhood that also shows how these elite operators live out the rest of their lives, away from danger, as husbands, fathers and friends.
Fearless is the story of a man of extremes, whose courage and determination was fueled by faith, family, and the love of a woman. It’s about a man who waged a war against his own worst impulses and persevered to reach the top tier of the US military. Always the first to volunteer for the most dangerous assignments, Adam’s final act of bravery led to the ultimate sacrifice.
Adam Brown was a devoted man who was an unlikely hero but a true warrior, described by all who knew him as fearless.

You don't have to be a military buff to be captivated by this man's life story. Becoming and being a Navy SEAL is amazing in itself...yet what he fought through in his personal life is truly jaw dropping. I sobbed like a baby...and laughed...and just thoroughly enjoyed this.
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.

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!!
