Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Every Man/Father/Son Should Read This"
    Where does Fearless rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Fearless has to be among the top 3% of audiobooks I've listened to. So good!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fearless?

    Hearing about the amazing strengths and weaknesses displayed by Adam Brown blew me away. The story of the bridge was a great illustration of who he was.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me tear up. Not an easy thing to do, but the amazing story of strength, courage, and overcoming adversity while leaning on one's faith really got to me.

    Story
    "Amazing"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fearless to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The lead character, Adam. He was a guy who walked through the "fires" of life, and made something out of himself. It is a wonderful story of love, strength, and courage.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Michael’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I think the moment in the book that moved me was when Adam's wife found the different notes he left for her when he was on a mission. It showed how caring he was. I was also moved when the author wrote about how Adam was studying to go to business school. It impressed me how he was never stuck in anything. He was always moving forward to improve himself.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a wonderful book about a man who found the "slot" he was meant to fill in his life. Being a navy seal is not for everyone, but everyone has a "slot" to fill in the world. Adam's story shows how when we find out place in the world we can accomplish amazing things. Although it is sad to know he lost his life early on, Adam's story lives forever and I'm sure he touched so many people, including his children and his wife, in ways they will carry forever. I'm so thankful to have read this book. It inspired me.

    Story
    "Great Military Biography"
    What did you love best about Fearless?

    The story as a whole is very well written, to such a degree that one feels that you actually knew Adam Brown personally. all the necessary detail is given without making any part of the story feel long winded.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The greatest part of Adam's life is the reality that a good kid can turn out bad, and that a bad kid can also turn out great. The world needs a lot more Adam Brown's.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Michael’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    not yet, but the narration was great. Paul's narration made for as great a listen as what the book makes a great read.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are many parts of this story that are very moving, beginning with Adam's downhill spiral and the fighting with his very close family, to him making it through all the various SF selection courses and becoming a great SF Operator. Then in his death knowing what his wife and kids and friends went through.

    Story
    "Heavily religious"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, with reservations. It is a powerful story with an excessively religious tone that may be too much for many.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was touched by the integrity & honour of an individual & of navy seals in general. The story is inspirational for good people who have hit bottom & don't know where they fit in the world.


    What three words best describe Paul Michael’s performance?

    Sensitive, gentle, pious


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes

    Yes, I love audiobooks.

    Lone Survivor

    Great delivery


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, I found this book to be very inspiring. There were points that made me laugh a little and others that made me want to cry for the family.


    Any additional comments?

    This year between Audible and another program I have listened to over 20 books. This book is by far the most inspiring and probably the best I have read.

    Insightful, inspiring, greatful


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story of Adam Brown is a great one. It's a story of a man who never gives up, puts others first and is greatful for his life. Adam Brown is someone who you wish you knew and wish you were friends with.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Michael – was your favorite?

    Adam Brown


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end.

    Story
    "Waaay too much preaching."
    What would have made Fearless better?

    I was interested in the story of this man's heroism. I did not purchase to hear at least a straight hour's worth of bible stories and how Jesus saved this man' s soul.


    Has Fearless turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I was worried I would be preached to when I saw the publisher. Never buying another by them.
