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.

    "The SEAL aspect is stunning, but he unconditional love without enablement of Adam's wife and parents makes the book a must read!"

    Not to take away from the SEAL team aspect of Adam, but most stunning is Adam's girlfriend then wife & his parents unconditional love - while not being enablers makes the book a must read.

    "Will NOT disappoint!"
    What did you love best about Fearless?

    Eric Blehm does a SUPERB job of crafting the true life narrative of Adam Brown. Exceptional research, getting the facts and opinions from those who knew Adam best. His ability to craft a story, perfectly paced, delivers on every single level.


    What other book might you compare Fearless to and why?

    The Only Thing Worth Dying For. Blehm's book before this, is exceptional in all the same ways that Fearless is.


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

    Paul Michael is tremendous in every way (more on that later). His overall narration is what I enjoyed most.


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

    I wish I had that kind of time.


    Any additional comments?

    In addition to Blehm's ability to write a great story is the use of Paul Michael as the voice talent. Paul tells the story with the conviction of someone who is completely invested in the story as if it's his own. Paul Michael could narrate my own death, to me, as it happens and I'd be totally in.

    "Compelling story, incredible journey, inspiring"

    I was captivated by this book in its entirety.

    Adam Brown's story is not smooth, and his desire to have the good and bad shared is selfless. It will inspire any person who feels a little demotivated or lost, or who feels that past mistakes may not be redeemable.

    Whilst I am not a religious person at all, I respect religion and a person's choice to believe, so the focus in some parts on Adam's faith did not bother me. In fact, I think that it was integral to his story and at least demonstrates the a belief - in self or a greater being - might be necessary to live the fullest life possible.

    This is my first audio book, so I'm not sure if it's common, but the male reader softening his tone or speaking in a slightly higher voice when quoting females made me laugh and also made me feel it was a little disrespectful, but I don't think it was intended and overall I found the audio book very pleasant to listen to.

    Finally, the book is a tribute to incredible Service personnel and their families and friends (whether or not it intends to be), all of whom we should be grateful for.

    "Amazing Story"

    The author did an absolutely outstanding job with this book. The story of this great American is excellent. Loved it.

    If you are not a religious person, you will have to suffer through multiple periods of Bible talk but the rest of the story makes it worth it.

    The narrator has one of the best reading voices I've heard so far on Audible.com...his main reading voice I should say. He has a silly, soft, southern-accented, female character voice when reading conversations that truly is annoying but you just have to power through it because the story truly makes it worth it. There is a lot of conversation written into this book so I'm not sure how else it could have been done better, but it does detract from the listening experience.

    Well done all around, though...so well done that I am now visiting the web pages associated with Adam Brown's life mentioned in the author interview at the end of the audiobook.
