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.

I have read (listened to) multiple books on special operations forces and this book has had an impact on my personal life like none other in the past. Adam Brown is an inspiration that each and every one of us can learn from. His courage, sacrifice and dedication for this country is beyond any words that be spoke...yet Eric Blehm managed to tell his story as if it were his own. This is a must read for any and all!
Absolutely one of the best stories I have heard.
Fearless ranks right with "Unbreakable" and "Lone Survivor"
This book choked me up (which never happens). It makes me think about my own life and family. It will inspire you and motivate you.
God is great. This story is a motivation for anyone who is in the dumps. You can do ANYTHING! Adam and his family prove this to the reader.
An Audio Book Junkie...
Great story.... made me tear up. Thank you to all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Fearless has to be among the top 3% of audiobooks I've listened to. So good!
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.
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.
I have not read the print version.
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.
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.
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.
