Fearless: The Undaunted Courage and Ultimate Sacrifice of Navy SEAL Team SIX Operator Adam Brown

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."

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.

    I'm a pragmatist & avid reader. I work full time+ so audiobooks = time to read. I'm an amateur author. I appreciate the art of writing.

    Story
    "To know the SEAL you must know the MAN."

    Introduction
    I am an avid audio books listener (Audible) and always keep a full library of books queued up to listen to so I can move right from one to the next. I purchased Fearless back in November of last year (11/12/2013). I don't usually migrate toward military themed books, this is the first I've read in years and I couldn't even tell you what the last one was. But when I saw this one, I felt a pull and knew that it was something that, even though I didn't really want to read it, I knew that I should. Like most books I purchase for this reason, I avoided it, never feeling like I was "in the mood" to start it up. Boy was I mistaken.

    The Beginning
    The first thing I noticed was that the book I was beginning had been produced by Christian Audio. I am spiritual myself, but having grown up with the "language", the phrases that much of the Christian community use left and right so much that they have lost their meaning ("saved", "moved to...", "voice of God", etc. etc.), I usually steer clear from clearly Christian material, feeling that much of the intent is lost in translation. While the book itself is not a "religious" one, the story certainly is. Never the less, I had the book and I was damn well going to read it.

    From the first sentences, I was pulled into the story. Because it was so fascinating? No. Because it started with a very clearly stated purpose - to understand the SEAL, you must first understand the man. You can't know how far someone has risen until you know how far they have first fallen. The story was not one of a Navy SEAL. It was the story of Adam Brown - the man.

    The Story
    What the story did, the way it was constructed, was pull you in. It made you feel like you knew Adam, his friends, his family, his town. The story was put together so as to make you feel like you were intimately a part of Adam's life, loved him like family, and appreciated his humanity. The writing, the story telling, was like you were sitting in a room with the people who knew him best and they were literally telling you about him and his life, from their unique perspectives. When you meet someone new, you form an idea of who they are in your head. Then as you hear things about them or stories about them from other people, that view begins to shift, and that is what this story feels like.

    The Middle
    The middle of the story, the transition from broken man to Navy SEAL, was by far my favorite part. Seeing someone so normal, so real, overcome extreme personal odds in order to succeed at the highest caliber one can. You admire his strength, his humility, his incredible tenderness, and moreover - his balance between SEAL and Husband & Father. It finds a piece of your soul and makes it say, "Hey, I could be something that matters too".

    The End
    You weren't left at the end with a generic "no one will ever truly know the number of lives that were touched" sort of an ending. You were left with quantifiable evidence in the way this man, just by living his life and always striving to be better, touched the lives of everyone he met. Including your own.

    Something I may have gotten that those who sit down and read the hard copy book may not have, was an interview with the author at the end. I usually listen to these when they are included, but sort of suffer through them since they all pretty much sound the same. I can't imagine this book being complete without that interview. I can't say much about it for fear that it would give away, what I feel, are some significant parts to the story. But I feel that interview really completed the work with proper closure.

    Overall
    I have read a lot of books. I've read a lot of good books. I haven't read many great books. This was by far the most incredible story. The story of a real man, with the most human and debilitating of flaws, who not only never let life get him down - but LIVED every second of his to the fullest, never missing out on anything.

    This story will make you want to do belly-flops off the high dive. Six times in a row.

    "A GREAT STORY ABOUT A GREAT MAN!!!!"

    Wow, I don't know where to start this book is real as a true life story could be told. The ups and downs of Adam Brown a son,athlete,felon,crack head,born again Christian and Navy Seal!! This is a story about the man a real person just like me and you. This true story has so many ups and downs it made me laugh and cry. Then I wanted really find out more about Adam Brown and I did. Sometimes you wonder why God takes the people he does because Adam Brown is truly one of the best men I've ever came to know and I feel like I know him now. Never quite never give up attitude Adam Brown has makes me think I could do better and I can try harder at everything I do.. When you read a book like that it's a MUST READ!! It was my pleasure reading this book about a true American hero.

    "Top 10 books this is #1 Read you won't regret!"
    Where does Fearless rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    #1


    What other book might you compare Fearless to and why?

    It is a book in its own class!


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

    For sure.


    Any additional comments?

    An incredible story. I purchased it on a whim, was all out of books and search Navy seal books. It was a low priced book so I thought I would try it. Wow best book ever. After I was done I bought 4 Paper copes and gave them out for friends to read on loan. Then some of them gave it to there friends. I didn't care as long as these books did not sit on a shelf. I felt it was a book others should read. This book is a incredible story I encourage all to read it. It is so much more than just a story about the Navy Seals. Every person I have loaned these books out too has had the same feelings I have. Please purchase this book and enjoy.

    Story
    "Changed my life"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fearless to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version, but I am purchasing it for a family member.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Adam Brown. A true American Hero.


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

    I have not read the book.


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

    I listen to books during my hour long commute to and from work each day. While listening to this book I found myself in tears while driving down the road. I would have to stop listening to the book a few miles before arriving to to work, so I could dry my eyes. Last night when telling parts of Adam's story to my wife, I couldn't do it without crying. I'm not typically like this. The story of Adam's life and how he cared so much for his family and his Navy Seal brothers changed my life forever. To hear throughout the book how Christ touched his life and inspired him to be the man he was truly opened my eyes. I call myself a Christian, but now I know my life must change and include Christ in everything I do, like Adam did. My heart hurts for Adam's family. May God forever watch over his family and his Navy Seal brothers. God bless you Adam Brown. Thank you for you time in service and thank you for wanting someone to tell your story from the beginning. Listening to your story has truly changed my life.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Eric for telling this story the way you did. I loved it and I am about to download it for my wife to listen to and purchase the book for a family member.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Fearless to be better than the print version?

    Both are very good.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fearless?

    There were so many it's really hard to say.


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

    Cried several times but had some laughs too


    Any additional comments?

    An amazing story of a addiction to redemption. It's a reminder that no matter how far off track someone may get, with God's help there is still some hope for everyone. But ultimately it's up to them to turn in a different direction.

    Yes. Great inspirational story!

    If you are looking for stories of elite warriors and their combat missions this is not the book. If you are looking for the inspirational story of a American Hero this is a must listen.

    "One Word...Wow"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'd recommend this book to ANYONE! Hope, Faith, Inspiration, Character, Perserverance... It's all there.


    What other book might you compare Fearless to and why?

    The only other biography that has touched me like this one was "God's Smuggler", the story of Brother Andrew.


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

    Absolutely


    Any additional comments?

    I literally have several hundred books in my library and I've listened to them all at least once and several more than once. I must say that in all my listening over the last 4-5 years this book is easily in the top 3. Honestly, it is one of the most amazing stories I've ever read and Adam Brown is the prime example of making the most of a life that looked almost hopeless. I was glued to this book. I have a new respect for our military and the men and women who serve in it. I will be listening to this again and pushing it on anyone who will listen. The story of Adam's life has me reanalyzing mine.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fearless?

    The fire ants


    What about Paul Michael’s performance did you like?

    The different voices he used.


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

    It just makes me thankful for people that give their lives to keep my freedoms. And I thank the families of all fallen solders.
    The things that Adam went through and still did not complain and even went on to do things he was not supposed to be able to do makes me look at my life when things seem to be going bad and then I remind myself it is good.
