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.

Great job on the voices.

Adam Brown he's an unbelievable warrior.
The hummer accident.
Several parts of the book made me happy and cry.
Best book in a long time.
Yes, very entertaining, great moral compass presented in the book. Guide to redemption
Overcoming the problems of his life and youth
Most of the book was filled with great scenes, funny stuff that kids and young boys do following into adulthood
I knew the ending, but it still sucked when it was finally revealed
Worth the read, worth letting a troubled kid read it to see that there is life after major mistakes
Enjoy History, current events, and many types of books. The best thing about using audible, is I'm able to listen to good books over trying to read them. I have worked in the business world for some twenty years after getting out of USMC in 1967. Later in served in the US ARMY GUARD for 23 years on active duty and retired in 2003. I am married for 28 years with a wonderful women and we have 5 grandkids. Enjoy reading and listing to good books
It was one of the best informational and actuarial express writing that I have read and listen too. The author capture importance of the Theme of the whole book and gave picture into these warriors of our Arm Forces. He show the real meaning of what it is to be a Seal, a group of men who Love Our Country and fights for US all
Shows the inter workings and training of Our Great fighting men.
The author's information was place in such a way, where one understands the way these men work during the training and real deal.
It's a great work of the author showing the real feelings of these men and their professionalism.
I did not read the book
The many amazing examples that Adam has set for men to strive towards.
Adam has moved me. The book is filled with too many examples to list only one.
I've read many books but non have inspired me more than the story of Adam Brown. I have recommended this book to every man and father I know. Thank you Adam for living an example of a Christ follower, amazing husband father and friend. I am a better man in all of these categories because of your story. You are a blessing to so many and I look forward to meeting you one day when I too am called home.
To Adam's wife, Kelley, his kids and his parents: thank you for telling Adam's story. He had a purpose on this earth and you are allowing God's work, with Adam, to continue on. We are praying for you still.
Struggle, triumph, inspiration
The spiritual aspect of his drive to succeed.
He gave a life and feeling to all of the characters
There is no quit in this man
I'm a 38 yr old man and this book brought tears to my eyes. What an amazing tribute to an American hero. My prayers go out to his family and friends in his absence.
Best book I've read/listened to in quite some time.
Both Adam and Kelly are equally my favorites.
It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me proud to be an American. More importantly, it left me awestruck at God's amazing redemptive power. It made me realize how God can use us if only we let Him.
There is an old saying that behind every great man is a great woman. Well... Kelly is a great woman. and an amazing example of what faith in ones life can do and how that faith can help one to do extraordinary things. Kelly, you have done Adam a great justice by honoring his wish to tell his story. The good, the bad and the ugly, and there was certainly some ugly. But in the end, Adam is the kind of man that makes America great!
The ongoing history of the modern American military hero is something I just can't seem to get enough of. Fearless paints an impressive picture of one such hero. Adam Brown was one tough man!
Story was good but the narrator really got on my last nerve when he would read quotations from the women. I will not buy another audiobook that he narrates.
