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
    "Great Military Biography"
    What did you love best about Fearless?

    The story as a whole is very well written, to such a degree that one feels that you actually knew Adam Brown personally. all the necessary detail is given without making any part of the story feel long winded.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The greatest part of Adam's life is the reality that a good kid can turn out bad, and that a bad kid can also turn out great. The world needs a lot more Adam Brown's.


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

    not yet, but the narration was great. Paul's narration made for as great a listen as what the book makes a great read.


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

    There are many parts of this story that are very moving, beginning with Adam's downhill spiral and the fighting with his very close family, to him making it through all the various SF selection courses and becoming a great SF Operator. Then in his death knowing what his wife and kids and friends went through.

    Story
    "Heavily religious"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, with reservations. It is a powerful story with an excessively religious tone that may be too much for many.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was touched by the integrity & honour of an individual & of navy seals in general. The story is inspirational for good people who have hit bottom & don't know where they fit in the world.


    What three words best describe Paul Michael’s performance?

    Sensitive, gentle, pious


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes

    Yes, I love audiobooks.

    Lone Survivor

    Great delivery


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

    Yes, I found this book to be very inspiring. There were points that made me laugh a little and others that made me want to cry for the family.


    Any additional comments?

    This year between Audible and another program I have listened to over 20 books. This book is by far the most inspiring and probably the best I have read.

    Insightful, inspiring, greatful

    The story of Adam Brown is a great one. It's a story of a man who never gives up, puts others first and is greatful for his life. Adam Brown is someone who you wish you knew and wish you were friends with.


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

    Adam Brown


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

    The end.

    Story
    "Waaay too much preaching."
    What would have made Fearless better?

    I was interested in the story of this man's heroism. I did not purchase to hear at least a straight hour's worth of bible stories and how Jesus saved this man' s soul.


    Has Fearless turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I was worried I would be preached to when I saw the publisher. Never buying another by them.

    Story
    "READ THIS BEFORE YOU BUY"
    Would you try another book from Eric Blehm and/or Paul Michael?

    Maybe


    If you’ve listened to books by Eric Blehm before, how does this one compare?

    N/A


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Poor attempt at Southern accent particularly when reading as "Kelly"


    Do you think Fearless needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    If you like to hear battle stories from and about Special Operations Warriors stop right here and buy another book. That being said you cannot fault the Author for the Religious themed book, I believe he wrote the story that Adam Brown's family wanted to tell. It is amazing that Adam Brown overcame his Demons and was able to perform at such a high level. Also the career ending injuries didn't hold him back. There is very minimal battle detail in this book and the narrator for some reason puts on a woman's voice with attempt at A Southern Draw. It takes away from the book as I couldn't help but be annoyed every time he read as Kelly Brown, Adam's wife. As readers/listeners we could've discerned when charter changes occurred. So overall I give it a 3 star rating. I do believe it is the story Adam would have wanted told and he certainly is a hero. I've listened to most of the Navy Seal books and they all take you through BUDS of course. It is a bit redundant at this point. Final advice is listen to another book if you want to hear action packed battle stories. If you want a motivational book or to hear how religion can shape a life, give it a listen.

    "SSLLOOWW.... narrator...reads...very...slowly..."
    Where does Fearless rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    lower third


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

    Yes as long as Paul Michael is not the narrator


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Reading the book so painfully slow. I had to listen to most of the book at 1.5 speed and some sections at 2.0 speed just to keep my brain awake... and that is actually the reason I subscribe to audible... I listen during long daily commutes. In addition to the slow pace of reading, the southern accent of the females was very... I don't even know the word... weird maybe. And although I wouldn't think it possible, he read the female lines even slower then the rest of his narration. Just bad.


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

    The end when the finally got off the fact that he was a recovering addict and focused on why he is an American Hero.


    Any additional comments?

    The book itself spends way too much time on Adam Brown's life low points and not nearly enough on what made him so beloved by his fellow SEALS.

    An amazing story of perseverance and determination and being able to overcome obstacles. The word fearless doesn't begin to describe who Adam Brown was.

    "This is the stuff legends are made of..."
    Where does Fearless rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Fearless has risen to the top of my military history list given the nature of Adam Brown's personal character in that he fought wars his entire life: Personal Addiction, Spiritual and Direct Combat. I don't recall ever reading another book that a human has risen from such personal depths to overcoming the absolute toughest challenges the world has to offer. Fearless has something to offer many genres in one great package: Military History, Addiction, Christianity, Family, etc.


    Any additional comments?

    The ultimate outcome of Adam Brown is well known and established before you crack the first page. I have to admit the book is so well written and told, that I almost had to stop listening because I wanted Adam to still be alive. It was hard for me to stomach hearing about the loss of this Man, Hero, Christian and Father. First time that's ever happened to me with any book...And I'm a combat veteran with the Marines.
