Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Gripping Story of Grace and Redemption"
    Would you listen to Fearless again? Why?

    Yes. It's one of the most inspiring stories out there.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fearless?

    Adam's struggle from drug addict to Top Tier DEVGRU operator, under (what would be to most people) prohibiting circumstances. Not much to say that hasn't been captured in other reviews. The book also reminds me some of the story of the Prodigal Son in the Bible. It was very emotional throughout, and especially toward the ending.


    What about Paul Michael’s performance did you like?

    I didn't like the reading that well. The story was good enough that the reading wasn't too distracting, but once Mr. Michael started trying to imitate Adam's wife Kelly, and his Mother Janice, his accents were just a little too over the top. You could tell he was trying to be southern and it didn't really come across that well. It was still good enough for 4 stars, and it may not bother anyone else, but it was something minor that caught my attention.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The ending was definitely the most emotional. You really felt sad for the Brown family after experiencing all of the struggles they had gone through, and then to see Adam doing so well.

    "Great Book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is by far one of the best books I have listened to in over a year! Adam Brown is a true American Hero, He had faults that he overcame to become a great member of SEAL Team 6. And the best part of the book, is when he came to know Jesus as his Lord and Savior!!!!

    Story
    "If you truly BELIEVE - anything is possible!"
    What did you love best about Fearless?

    The story of the man and his life, this is not an action book, love story, Comedy, Tough Guy or WE ARE THE BEST type book. Its all that and more, what this man was able to achieve with all the handicap's he had - that so few with nothing holding them back couldn't - there is only reason he was able to get it done!


    What other book might you compare Fearless to and why?

    I think LONE Survivor would be very close - the story of Marcus Luttrell and his mission which is mentioned in this book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are some many parts, but I guess the one that sticks is when his team mates take Adam with them back to the base, against protocol and they never leave his side. As well as the two bus loads of returning members of Adams teams going to see Adam and his family after returning home. Of course these same guys jumping off the bridge, but they did it during the day off the side, not at night off a moving truck like Adam.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a story about someone that had to overcome so much, but never stopped caring and helping others - someone that we should all be trying to reach his level, but many will never come close. This is not a story truly about the WAR, but of living a great life and doing what we should all be doing each day - living it to the most, carry for others and putting others before ourselves. No matter where you are today, there is hope that it can and will get better only if we BELIEVE!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Fearless to be better than the print version?

    I have not held the print version, but I prefer audiobooks personally.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fearless?

    I cannot say there is 'one' moment that is going to stand out. I am finding that through my day I am recalling various parts of Adams story. If there could truly be a blueprint for a life well lived, this would be that print.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Michael – was your favorite?

    Paul did an excellent job portraying all characters and keeping a consistent dialogue throughout, he could shift into a character and without actually introducing them I would know who was talking.


    Any additional comments?

    I have not even finished the book (in the last chapter this morning), but I have laughed heartily, I have felt the pang of sorry and I have cried. I have now spent an hour of my morning researching Adam Brown and his legacy. I have now seen an interview with Kelley on the 700 club, and watched multiple videos and read multiple posts. I continue to be moved and inspired. This will be a book that I will come back to time and again.

    "A MUST LISTEN FOR ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
    Would you listen to Fearless again? Why?

    Remarkable story about a Remarkable man. Also written and narrated by two gentlemen that were meant for this story. You will laugh and you will cry. You will be happy and you will be sad. And lastly, some if not all listeners will say a prayer for all of the men and women in harms way.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fearless?

    The whole story is a memorable moment that I will never forget.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Michael’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first. Absolutely Great job!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES


    Any additional comments?

    You should follow-up on the internet about Adam Lee Brown after you finish the story. I have said a prayer for him and his family.

    "Amazing Life Story (irrespective of your beliefs)"
    Any additional comments?

    This review is more about the book's critics than the story itself, which is remarkable and speaks for itself.

    Now to those who criticize this book on religious grounds:

    First, I am neither spiritual nor religious, not at all. However, this does not stop me from empathizing with those who are. That fact that this Christianity was a driving factor in Adam Brown's life is noteworthy, whether you share his beliefs or not.

    I am amazed at some of the reviewers who tear down this story because of the religious aspect, because these are probably some of the same people who lecture others about tolerance of other races or sexuality. Yet they can not tolerate others who happen to be spiritual.

    The hypocrisy is mind blowing.

    Awesome book. Just make sure in the last 1-3 chapters you have tissues on hand. Adam Brown was a gift to the world and was taken, in my view, to be readied for the final battle to fight along side Gabriel.
