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.

Thank you Adam. And thank you Kelli.
If this book does not inspire change in the way you go about life you may be dead inside.Well written and the character Adam Brown is nothing short of a Hero for all humanity as a father, husband, son, hero, friend and a Christian.
If you see a BMW motorcycle cruising down the road, you can be assured I'm listening to a book from Audible!
What an incredible story about a man who turned his life around. This candid look inside Adam Brown's life shows all that choices we make are long lasting, and the consequences are felt for years. Even though he broke the cycle of drug abuse, the effects were long lasting and haunted him for the rest of his life.
Despite his difficult past, he made the effort to better himself and recognized his need to do something for the greater good. Ultimately giving his life for his team and country, Adam is a man to be looked up to and admired. God bless his family, his teammates, and the United States for his example and sacrifice.
This book was inspirational in a sense of a man, an American, and a Christian. The author sought out to tell the story not only of Adam Brown the great soldier, the father and husband, but also the drug addict. This book gives you a sense that there is hope, even when hope feels entirely diminished. This book was great, and I would suggest it to anyone with interests in this special forces, or someone seeking out direction in their religion.
Listening to Adam Brown's story made me cry, which is not easy to do. The story was exciting, touching, and thought provoking.
This book is a must read. It is an inspirational story that shows that no matter what problems we have in life, no matter how deep in the trenches of hell we may get, with the Lords help and determination we can do anything. This Hero rose up from spiritual death and became one of the most elite warriors in the world. Though he was fearless in life, he feared one thing and that was failing his Heavenly Father.
