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.

This book is now on my top 10 list of favorite books I have read of all time. I would recommend this book a thousand times over. A perfect book for the teen and adults alike. It is informative, and horrifying as it captures addiction vividly. And then laced with testimonials of Jesus Christ and his saving Atonement. Onto heroism, valor and perseverance with a call of duty. Loyalty at its finest.
This book was inspiring and we are fortunate to hear it and unfortunate in that Adam died which made that possible. In a time in our country where everyone is looking for an excuse to quit or to explain why they can't do something, this man had many legitimate excuses and used none.
God uses the most unlikely people to spread His word and Adam Brown is further proof of that. God is also a God of second chances, again so clear in this story.
Thank you for writing this and to the military men and women who work so hard and sacrifice so much that we stay safe and enjoy our freedoms. May God bless and protect you and your families.

Yes, it was the story of how love overcame addiction and preserved the life of a man that greatly displayed dedication to make America a safer place. He also lived out the immeasurable value of family in all aspects of life.
Loved the content and human reality of the integrity and human side of this Navy Seal
The best I have experienced
This is an amazing story about an amazing man and what's even more amazing is that he wanted his story told to glorify God. This story was only made possible because of the other amazing men he served with as seals who made it a priority to honor him before deploying and ultimately giving of their lives as well. We are blessed to live in freedom because these amazing men and their wives. Praise be to God.
