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 have read every Navy seal book written. There are some really good ones, there is an one that I have not liked. All of the books this one is my favorite. Every aspect an element of this book and of Adams life was dialed in inspire me to be better at everything I do
I have not read the printed version
Adam Brown, for his selfless service, his sacrifice, his faith in God, and his service to our nation.
The scene where his eye was crooked but he just laughed it off.
Yes, very much so!
I have listened to several USN Seal books, everything from Service to Lone Survivor. Although the rest of the books were very good, Fearless does something that the others didn't, brag. This book wasn't your typical "look at me, i'm a bad ass" type of Navy Seal memoir, this was about a man who put everyone first before himself. What made this book even more special is the fact that Adam was a Christian man who relied on his beliefs to get him through some tough situations. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone!!
Amazing! I teared up multiple times at the courage both he and his wife have. What made me admire him most was how he treated his wife though. He was a true gentleman as well as a warrior.
I make it a point to read every book I can find involving the teams, and this is definitely in the very top.
You don't need to be in the service to enjoy Adam Brown's moving story.
Excellent. I would rate it with more stars if I could.
