Summary:

Fearless takes you deep into SEAL Team SIX, 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.

    Awe Inspiring story about a true hero. I laughed, cried, became angered, and found joy in learning about Adam Lee Brown's life. As a Naval veteran, I would have considered it an honor to have known a man of his caliber not only as a warrior but as a husband, dad, brother, son, co-worker, and friend. A must read! I'd love to see this story on the big screen someday.

  • Jennifer E

    It is rare to meet a real life hero who takes action to not only care about his country, and fellow Americans, but also the innocent ones caught in the battle. Adam's appeal for an outpouring of compassion from home for these war torn children is humbling. He shows us a picture of someone who understands compassion for his fellow man around the world. Read this book to be deeply inspired and appreciate the freedoms we often take for granted.

    What a tremendous story of Adam Brown, Navy Seal and member of the elite Seal Team Six. His life story, his commitment to Jesus Christ and love for his country, his family and his fellow Seal Team members is truly inspirational!!! He is a hero who literally laid his life down for his friends. You will not regret for one second reading this book if you love our country and the men and women in uniform that put their lives on the line to protect us and our freedoms.

  • Dan Trantham

    Easily one of the best books I've ever read. Not necessarily because of any one single reason; but because the man, the family, the girl, the job, the kids, the demons, the writing, and the reason.
