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.

    Story
    "Fearless: The Undaunted Courage of Navy Seal"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fearless to be better than the print version?

    Yes! Because it is a long book so to me it is intimaditing to read all the way through! A wonderful listening book!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fearless?

    Brown's uphill battle after losing an eye had to learn how to shoot with his non dominant eye!


    What about Paul Michael’s performance did you like?

    His voice kept you interested!


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

    The Seal Tridents being embedded in his coffin! You knew how hard they worked to earn them! It showed how much respect they had for Brown!


    Any additional comments?

    A truly inspiring book of courage, determination,and faith!

    Story
    "One of My All Time Favorites."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fearless to be better than the print version?

    Audio is better since I am not a fast reader.


    What other book might you compare Fearless to and why?

    American Sniper. They are both about our Navy Seals, books about our military heros. I love them for their courage and sacrifice. They represent the real treasure of America.


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

    I loved all of the characters. Read a review where someone said he didn't do a woman very well. Huh?? I wanted to ask if he has heard women trying to be men. He does a great job even on the women.


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

    I definately wanted to listen to the book all in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    I would not have read this book had I not seen Kelly and Janice Brown being interviewed on TV first. You could see the glow of the faith that has kept them strong. I have a difficult time reading books when the good guys die. Eric Blehm put it out there in the beginning of the book but yet I found myself wishing for a different outcome. This is truly one of my very favorite books of the 275 I have purchased in 18 months. It's about faith, courage and unconditional love, bravery, loss, redemption, joy and sorrow. It's about a military hero who stands for a cause greater than himself. Adam Brown was not just good but "the finest America has to offer." He was determined, resilient, tough but still the tender warrior to his family. The loss of Adam Brown was a tragic American loss. I will never forget Larry, Janice, Kelly, Nathan and Savannah. It is also a testament to God's grace that He can take flawed people and transform lives. You will laugh, you will cry but you will never be the same. A deeply moving and wonderful book about one of the many heroes to whom I owe so much but will never be able to thank.

    "What an incredible book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fearless to be better than the print version?

    The thing missing from the audio version is photos. After I finished listening I went online to the NRA website and watched the documentary mentioned towards the end of the book. I highly recommend that you watch A Tribute to Adam Brown (Parts 1 & 2) at . (You'll have to select the video on the lower part of the screen, then play it at the top of the screen.)


    What other book might you compare Fearless to and why?

    Unbroken, without a doubt. If anything, Fearless is more touching, inspirational and heartbreaking than Unbroken.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    At the start of the book, they said it was from Christian audio (not sure if that's exactly right, but a religious affiliation of some sort). Anyway, I'm not a super religious guy, and was wondering what I'd gotten myself in to. Good news--this is not a 'preachy' book. If it had been written as fiction, I would have dismissed it out-of-hand as unrealistic. The fact that it happened, that this man was a real person, is just remarkable and totally inspiring. And redemption--like you won't believe. And a (tough) love story? In her own way, Brown's wife is every bit the warrior her husband was. Where do you find a woman with that kind of toughness? Good Lord, my wives wouldn't have lasted a week of her life! Yet she thrived and by her own admission wouldn't change a thing. This is an incredibly uplifting, uniquely American story that you'll never forget. '24' (and you'll have to listen to know what that means!)


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

    Guys, if you don't want the ladies to see you cry, don't listen to the last hour or so in their presence...


    Any additional comments?

    If you're like me, you'll be wondering throughout the book why these SEALs are allowing their names to be used...

    "Awsome read! Hard to put down!"
    What did you love best about Fearless?

    This is a inspiring story of determination and perseverence. Against odds that would have caused most others to quit Adam just kept going and achieving more. His mixture of grit, determination and kindness are a true inspiration.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The perseverence despite hitting rock bottom. Many would just quit or have given up, not Adam. Despite his demons, he performed to his utmost. I appreciate the sacrifices that those in his chosen profession make to keep the rest of us safe.


    What does Paul Michael bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love to read but don't have as much time as I would like to sit down with a book .. Audiobook provide me a unique opportunity to enjoy great literature. Paul Michael brings humanity to the story, by listening I feel as if this is a story of a friend.


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

    I am inspired how Kelley never gave up on Adam. Many women would have thrown up their hands a dozen times but not Kelley. Being the wife of someone in such a dangerous occupation is beyond my understanding. Despite having spent 5 years in the regular army and my spouse spending almost 10 years, I have never been in the situations that these remarkable women deal with every day. Thank for your sacrifices for our freedom!

    "annoying"
    What would have made Fearless better?

    Thought this would be a book about war and our great soldiers. Instead it was just trying to convert you. A religion book disguised as a war book. Very annoying. I am christian and I was super annoyed with this book. Very disappointing.

    "Unbelievably moving and inspiring"

    Simply an amazing story of faith, family, redemption and ultimate sacrifice. Adam Brown's life story, warts and all, is moving and inspiring. The book left me wanting to know more, not just about Adam, but all those in the special warfare community. The sacrifice they, and even more importantly, their families make is beyond my ability to comprehend. The special operators and their loved ones are incredible gifts from God. Bottom line, read/listen to this book. You won't be disappointed. God speed to Adam and thank you for stepping up to "shovel some of the world's sh*t." (A funny and memorable line from the story).

    "Inspiring story told beautifully"
    What did you love best about Fearless?

    I enjoyed the intimate details conveyed in such a simple way.


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

    Paul Michael did a wonderful job telling the story of Adam Brown. I can't imagine anyone else doing it better.


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

    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.

    "This is a religious story!!!!!!!!!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It would depend on that friends views on religion.


    What other book might you compare Fearless to and why?

    The Bible, because its the only other book that talks about god this much.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I found his faking a womans voice absolutely rediculous.


    Was Fearless worth the listening time?

    Was not at all what i expected. The god part should be stressed far more than it is.
