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
    "Gripping biography of an exceptional SEAL"

    I already had the book in my Kindle library, but I wanted to include the audio narration to my library. This was quite a story and a fitting tribute to the subject of it. After reading and listening to the narration. I find my trials and tribulations fairly easy to overcome in comparison to what Adam Brown (SOC) endured. I will refrain from revealing anything beyond this point and only urge readers to pick this book up: especially now as memorial day approaches. The narrator was quite good. As it is with audiobooks, you take what you are given and the narration sounded fine with male voices nonetheless it did come off as a little strange when he tried mimicing the female characters. This is a minor point and did not detract from an otherwise enjoyable book.

    "Best Navy SEAL book I've read!"

    Not to discredit books like American Sniper or lone Survivor, I can honestly say this is the best SEAL story I've heard thus far. I also am a recovering addict and after hearing Adam's story I know it's possible to leave the past in past and accomplish anything I put my mind to.

    "LOVED IT!!!"
    Would you listen to Fearless again? Why?

    Yes, but maybe several years from now.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fearless?

    I loved hearing about Adam Brown and the SEAL team. Very genuine and authentic


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Paul Michael?

    Well, I didn't care for the narration, especially when he tried to speak like Adam's wife and mother..... but other than that it was okay


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

    Not sure.... I love Adam's entire life story. I love how he gave himself to his Lord, his wife and kids and his team.

    "Great story"

    As a non American listener with an agnostic view on god I must say the story is really captivating and good. A story about one man who lost his way but came back stronger than ever, being a role model to live by. Devout father, husband and warrior in the SEAL community. As I listened to the part where the number 24 is mentioned, a drum with the label 224 rolls by on the conveyor belt. It made me think of Adam. Your sacrifice will not be forgotten. Sincerely, Kris from Sweden.

    Triumph & heartbreak. I'm a military spouse and this book made me cry tears of joy and tears of heartbreaking pain. Adam Brown makes me proud to be an American and inspires me to be a better spouse, parent, and person.

    "Like pulling teeth"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you like being preached to by a christian audio book then this is for you. Everything is gods will, even the drug addiction. oh dear, oh deary me


    What will your next listen be?

    Scott Jurek the ultra marathon runner


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    If like me you saw this book and thought it was going to be an insight into one mans remarkable achievements then think again. You can just skip cd 1, 4 hours of poor boy done good sob story)

    Its preachy beyond belief (produced on Christian audio)

    It took more will power to listen to it than it did the Navy Seal to fumble through his life.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fearless?

    Remove all of CD 1 and a big part of Cd 2. The 8 hour audiobook could have gone into 1-2 hours max


    Any additional comments?

    I cant get my time back wasted listening to this

    "Inspirational...and real."

    This is an amazing story of an amazing man and his family. If your looking for something to inspire you look no further. This story of a man with a "can do" attitude will stay with me for life. The strength of his family and wife just adds to the story.. If that wasn't enough you get to see a glimpse of the brotherhood, which is the Naval Seals. Full credit to everyone involved and respect to all. Please don't forget when reading this, that this actually happened.... Thank you for telling this great story.

    "A story about an amazing person."

    It's easy to eulogise a person, especially when they are a celebrity. This book has been such an amazing experience to both read (on the Kindle) and to listen to as an audiobook. The narration is great with different and distinctive accents (but in no way off putting) to portray Adam and all who knew him. One reviewer I have come across recently (I can't remember where), states that the book will change the way you look at things. The reviewer I believe was a veteran Green Beret. All I can say is that this book has made a massive impression on me. The biography deals with a man who had to fight his own worst demons that included cocaine addiction and personal social challenges of fitting in socially in his university years. The extent of his addiction was extreme and yet the story exemplifies that his family and faith (he was a Christian) could make him achieve anything. He joined the navy and eventually passed the US Navy DEVGRU (Seal Team 6) selection with a crippled hand and only one functional eye- that is just difficult to grasp. This is a human story of a person who relied on his faith and family to thrive and do his best despite a permanent biological addiction to drugs and multiple injuries of a long spanning service career. You find out he does manage to cope with his issues and still excel in being both a family man and a tier-1 special forces sailor. The resounding message was that he never quit anything that he set his mind to. He was tasked to kill and yet he had shown compassion to his friends (saving his best mate from a gun shot wound) and to the children and women in the war zones he fought in. One touching chapter in the story relates to how when he was on mission, instead of asking for his wife to send him a 'goody' box, he instead requested that she and his family buy children's shoes as the Afghan children would have had cold feet from the snowy weather. I think that the story will appeal to both men and women. I hope you find this helpful. H

    "Heartbreaking story of a brave man"
    What did you like best about Fearless? What did you like least?

    The story behind a brave man who conquered his own demons and shows that the military can change your life for the good. But only if you want it too


    Would you be willing to try another book from Eric Blehm? Why or why not?

    Yes a good story teller and doesn't try to be to technical.


    Did Paul Michael do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

    Very good job, some narrators can make all the difference this man does and keeps you listening and doesn't, put you to sleep


    Did Fearless inspire you to do anything?

    Well I ain't going to join the Seals if thats what you mean.

    Story
    "Real trials on life's hard journey in the SEALS"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fearless to be better than the print version?

    Yes as the narrator was able to portray Adam starting from his birth until his untimely death


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Adam Brown went through so many terrible things in his life but on each occasion he saw it as a challenge to conquer. Even when he was surrounded by his friends as he drew his last breaths.


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

    The tone of the book in the initial chapters during Adams struggle with drugs didn't appeal to me. But as I persevered through the chapters. His early life dropped into place.


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

    I listened each team I took the dogs for a walk on a journey from and to work. It was hard to stop myself just listening all in one go.


    Any additional comments?

    I was initially put off with the drug scene but was so pleased I'd seen it through until the end and the story didake real sense when reflecting on Dam and his families experience .

    It's well worth listening to definitely going to revisit this in the future too.

    "Truly inspiring!"

    I can not recommend this audio-book enough!
    It is an incredibly inspiring gut wrenching tale of one of life's true heroes.
    I actually woke up the morning after finishing the book, with a real feeling of bereavement for Adam. I listened to this after finishing Chris Kyles "American Sniper", which left me not thinking very highly of The SEALS and quite frankly it confirmed to me why America gets such a bad rep overseas. However this book completely pulled it around, it's a real 10/10.
