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 really enjoyed this book. I loved that the author told his story from the beginning and not some where in the middle. It is great to see how God can touch and change a life, and through that one life he can change so many others for good.
There is an issue with how the audio was recorded. The first part of a word on a new sentence is cut-off because the mic kicks in too late. Words that start with letters like "T" or "Y" and unfortunately "A" (as in Adam) gets cut off. When the narrator speaks instead of hearing "The mother of Adam" you will hear something like "ha mother of Adam" or Instead of hearing "Adam met up with his friends, and..." you will hear "Dam met up with his friends" I kept going back thinking, "what was that? Who is Damn?" To figure out this recording is a mess. It got to a point where I could not take this poor quality audio any longer and returned to book.
This book helps me to appreciate our military even more. Adam Brown also shows with a lot of dedication you can accomplish anything.
Adam Brown proves that adversity can be overcome and a person really does have a choice in how they live their life. Adam chose to overcome adversity and live his life as a hero.
This story completely threw me off at first I thought.. This is going to be a high speed seal book this will be awesome! something to charge me even more as a patriotic American little did I know this story would have a way bigger effect on my life. god led me to this book to help me realise what really important. Adam brown was a great man of faith and struggles and a bad ass American I look forward to meeting him some day!
I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone that loves America and the warriors that are willing to pay the ultimate price to defend our freedoms.
Adam Brown. This great man overcame more tragedies in his life than I could ever imagine. The words quit or give up were not in his vocabulary. He loved Jesus, his family, friends and his country more than I thought was possible. I pray that I can be half as good a man as this great man.
The life and trials of a American Hero.
This audio book is fantastic! I am impressed and inspired by the story of Adam Brown and the rest of the military community. This book is a must read if you enjoy military or inspirational books!
I have been listening to audio books for years and especially I am fan of Special Forces (Navy Seals etc). I think this book should neither be under Bios, Memoirs nor Military History section. It should either be under Religion or fiction (even though it would be a very lame fiction book). I don't mean the story is fake. But the way it is presented is like a pastor giving a sermon or a very cheesy lame fiction movie. Instead of getting this touchy feeling, I feel like puking from excessive praising of God, calling from above, praying etc.
And come on! In order to show a person's greatness, the author doesn't have to go in such a way that glorify the character too much up to the point he become so lame. If I can, I would return this audiobook straightaway. But for some reason audible block me to return this book. But I have happily removed it from my listening devices.
