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 enjoyed the intimate details conveyed in such a simple way.
Paul Michael did a wonderful job telling the story of Adam Brown. I can't imagine anyone else doing it better.
This book inspired me. I sometimes lapse in my dedication to the job because I am so far removed from the fight. This book reminded me why I do what I do. My role is a minor one, but I feel that my support to the war fighter is needed. This book reminded me that though I am not in harms way, I support those who are. My fight is easy in comparison.
It would depend on that friends views on religion.
The Bible, because its the only other book that talks about god this much.
I found his faking a womans voice absolutely rediculous.
Was not at all what i expected. The god part should be stressed far more than it is.
I laughed, I cried, I got so angry it was hard to contain and then I felt so much pride in the selfless acts of this one man, this one Hero and his love for God, his Nation, his Brothers and his Family.
I have to say, I think this is one of the best Special Forces books I have ever had and was truly inspiring.
Adam Brown is a true hero, a family man and gentleman, the book is a very honest account of a man who made a difference. I watched a you tube video which was an interview with Adam Browns wife, what an amazing woman, who also gave the ultimate sacrifice.Long may Adam Brown inspire people with his life story and his courage.Dave (Sydney, Australia)
Yes, a great book
Yes, It is inspiring, leading anyone to believe with determination and self discipline you can achieve anything.
The kind of father and husband he was.
Very inspiring and looks into the life of a navy seal, not just what a navy seal does.
What a story! If you are looking for a military book on how to become a US Navy Seal... keep looking. This is Adam Brown's struggle to follow Christ. This is the best book I have purchased from Audible!
Adam Brown had fallen and was broken. Through his love for Christ he became a hero by anyone's definition. He gave all and clearly named Christ as the reason for that sacrifice.
Great story, tragic loss but a well told story.
First book I read the reviews and just bought not knowing anything else about it and was completely delighted.
Haven't read the print
It made me want to know more about Navy Seals.
I couldn't really fault it. I loved the narrator's strong voice for a strong character.
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.
Love getting smarter everyday. Audible helps
The most revealing story of a soldier I have ever listed to.
The moment when Adam Brown's wife is informed of his fate move me to tears and downright sobbing.
