Fearless: The Adam Brown Story

I’ve read my share of inspirational stories, but none compares to that of Adam Brown – a SEAL Team SIX Operator. From hometown hero… to drug addict doing jail time… to Navy SEAL, it’s a story of triumph second to none.

Fearless is a chronicle of heroism and humanity at its best. Adam Brown was 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.

“As a rule, we don’t endorse books or movies or anything regarding the command where I work, and Adam Brown worked, but as the author writes in Fearless, ‘you have to know the rules, so you know when to bend or break them.’ This is one of those times. Read this book. Period. It succeeds where all the others have failed.” ~ Anonymous SEAL Team SIX Operator

“Fearless is a clear and deeply honest portrait of an authentic American man who lived and loved with an intrepid personal velocity. For most of us, the failures and disappointments in life take their toll. Not for Adam Brown. He vanquished all life’s heartbreaks with faith, humility, and hard work.”
~ Kurt Johnstad, screenwriter, Act of Valor and 300

Fearless will hit bookshelves next week but I got the chance to read a prerelease copy and had trouble putting it down. I laughed… I cried… I was inspired to live life to the fullest.

    I just finished Fearless. It was the most moving and inspiring true stories I have read in years. This book deepened my respect for our American Warriors to an even greater degree. The book can be enjoyed by those who embrace Biblical Christianity and those who do not. Because Adam Brown embraced Christ it is part of the story, but it is not Christian propaganda. In spite of some doctrinal disagreements I have with the very few references, I found the Adam Brown story riveting, motivational and tribute to our American Warriors.

    Just finished “Fearless”. Wow. That is about all I can say at this point except to say, “I wept”. Adam Brown and his entire Team are true Heros.

        I want to be able to say more relating to the story, so very well told, concerning Adam Brown. I am still just kind of “raw” emotionally. I can’t yet put into words the impact of it. I know simply that as I read I was moved to humility and pride at the same time. A profound gratefulness rose in my mind and heart for those like Adam who give their all for this Country. I am humbled and thankful. I just wish that these men knew how we as Americans, are truly thankful for their service. That does not even begin to express what I mean to say. Heros all, but humble men. Strength
        and Honor.

      • I understand. Some thoughts and feelings are hard to convey with mere words.

    Knowing how the book would end, I dreaded getting to the end. However, taking the story as a whole, tHis inspiring, touching and shows how truly great the human spirit really is and how great Gods work can be in a life devoted to him.God bless Adams family and Adam as well as his teammates who allow us to live as we do.

    I have read plenty of stories about Navy SEALs and other American Heroes. Nothing, and I mean nothing, compares to this book. I cried multiple times toward the end of the book due to the extreme sadness of such a wonderful person losing his life far too early. The love and fondness he shared for his wife and family are unparalleled and reading about him inspires me to be a better person.
