Publisher's Summary

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.

Like pulling teeth

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

If you like being preached to by a christian audio book then this is for you. Everything is gods will, even the drug addiction. oh dear, oh deary me


What will your next listen be?

Scott Jurek the ultra marathon runner


How did the narrator detract from the book?

If like me you saw this book and thought it was going to be an insight into one mans remarkable achievements then think again. You can just skip cd 1, 4 hours of poor boy done good sob story)

Its preachy beyond belief (produced on Christian audio)

It took more will power to listen to it than it did the Navy Seal to fumble through his life.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fearless?

Remove all of CD 1 and a big part of Cd 2. The 8 hour audiobook could have gone into 1-2 hours max


Any additional comments?

I cant get my time back wasted listening to this

Inspirational...and real.

This is an amazing story of an amazing man and his family. If your looking for something to inspire you look no further. This story of a man with a "can do" attitude will stay with me for life. The strength of his family and wife just adds to the story.. If that wasn't enough you get to see a glimpse of the brotherhood, which is the Naval Seals. Full credit to everyone involved and respect to all. Please don't forget when reading this, that this actually happened.... Thank you for telling this great story.
