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.

Adam Brown is a hero. Not only for his wartime accomplishments, but also for his devotion to God and family. This book is excellently written, making the reader feel as if the characters are family. I was lost in this book from beginning to end, trying to understand the kind of son, husband and father that Adam Brown was. He is the epitome of what it means to be a man and an American. The author conveyed this in a clear and concise manner. I fell in love with this book and in doing so fell in love with the whole Brown family. Thank you Eric Blehm and thank you Adam Brown.
This book blessed me in ways I never expected. I had heard reviews that it was good but it showed insight to a world foreign to most of the population. What these guys & families go through. Their dedication & sacrifices!! I'm in awe. Adam Brown and his family are overcomers!! Hoorah!
what an incredible man and story. I stumbled on fearless not knowing it was by the same author as the only thing worth dying for which I also loved.
this is one of the most incredible and heart wrenching stories I've ever read. highly recommended.
Truly inspirational. One of the best books I've ever read. Through Christ all things are possible. Adam Brown is a prime example of that and of how God uses us all to glorify Him. We are all human and have something in our lives like Adam's crack addiction that make us stumble. God will always be there to pick us up when we fall.
Complete unvarnished biography!
Too many moving moments to narrow down to one.
Worth your time ... worth your tears! Adam Brown was a true hero with scars, faults, a past, in other words ... a human who kept fighting - not only his inner demons, but for his family, his country and God. This is not a book I would typically read, but was paging through my options and this book had been downloaded. I'm sure I bought it as a "Daily Deal" for under two dollars and thought, "why not, I might run out of books". I am here to say - pay full price if you have to - it is worth it!
