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.

Amazing, must read!
Read the book well.
This was an excellent book I will suggest to others. The end made my eyes water a bit and that don't normally happen. The nicknames and stories made me laugh. So I would answer both to the questions above. My heart goes out to his family, friends, and people whose life he touched. Simply put read it.
This was an awesome book that I downloaded on a whim, I figured that I would give it a try. I was greatly surprised by how good it was and found myself eagerly wanting to hear more. Must read.
Fan from WA
Yes. I have listened to it more than twice and will listen to it again.
It gave me a feel about how our military experiences life during war and how proud they are to be protecting our country.
It made me laugh and it made me cry. There were also times that it made me angry. People are giving up their lives and decisions are being made by politicians who have no idea of the reality of the battle field.
So much to learn, and so little time to sit down and read. Thanks Audible.
I have seen few people truly break free from the pitfalls and consequences of drug addiction, and move on to accomplish great things. This book is the awesome story of Adam Brown's victory over addiction. With his wife's help he didn't just try to sweep it under the rug and move on. He structured his life in a manner that would give him the optimal chance of success going forward. It was really moving to see Adam morph into a man of integrity, a loving and faithful husband, an engaged father, and a brave and valiant soldier.
It also contained a lot of exciting action, and an informative look into the life of a Navy Seal. This was a great book to listen to, I highly recommend it.
I liked the personal background of Adam Brown. He clearly struggled much in life but was a better man for it.
Performance was Ok. I did not like the voices he used for the other characters. That didn't add much.
I thought the story of his final mission in Afghanistan should have had more substance to it. He clearly did an heroic thing but the description seemed to short.
After listening to many books, this is the first time I've been compelled to write a review. Fearless is an amazing story of Navy Seal Team 6 Operator, Adam Brown. Eric Blehm did a wonderful job telling Adam's story and his legacy of faith, family and patriotism. I believe that Paul Michael is one of the best narrators in the business and his delivery of Fearless is second to none. You will not be disappointed with this book.
"I got it"
Cry, the moments when Adam's body is returned, the images of the ceremonies and respect paid to him couldn't keep anyone dry!
Special in so many levels, feel I know the family as good friends.
As a Veteran, this is a GREAT Book. I will not say anymore, other than you will not be disappointed. This person was special.
Must listen, awesome man, moving and guided me back to where I belong
Adam.. Character, faith
Narrated is excellent!!!!!!! Story is awesome and amazing. I was crying like a baby throughout the story. RIP Adam Brown. The interview at the end with the author was great as well!!
It is one of the best books. Except for the reader's girl voices I felt like I knew Adam Brown and his friends were right by me.
Adam Brown obviously! He kicks butt and is a great man at the same time!
