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.”

Fearless is the story of a man of extremes, whose courage and determination were fueled by faith, family, and the love of a woman. It’s about a man who waged a war against his own worst impulses, including drug addiction, and persevered to reach the top tier of the U.S. military. In a deeply personal and absorbing chronicle, Fearless reveals a glimpse inside the SEAL Team SIX brotherhood, and presents an indelible portrait of a highly trained warrior whose 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.

“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.” -- SEAL Team SIX Operator

    Absolutely pulse-pounding.

    That’s the best I can explain my feelings this morning after finishing reading Fearless last night. A book authored by Eric Blehm reflecting the story of Adam Brown while serving on Seal Team Six.

    The cover of this book reads, The Undaunted Courage and Ultimate Sacrifice of Navy SEAL Team SIX Operator Adam Brown, but take my word for it, it is this and so much more. And a profound ‘Yes’, this Adam Brown is an American hero as he was also fearless. But perhaps more importantly, he lived a life of honor, as a son, father, husband and a daring example for us all to live by. If I may be so bold to say, if you miss these examples, you missed Adam’s purpose and desire to share his story prior to his own death.

    All to say, if you want to read another SEAL book isolated around captivating BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL training) and the alluring heroism while serving on the Navy special forces elite Navy team, you’ll get that here. Absolutely.

    But then you’ll miss out on the true prize. The bonus of witnessing a legacy of love and commitment. Take my word for it, this book will leave you scratching your head while blindly staring into your own bathroom mirror.

    You see, Adam Brown Navy Seal story demands all of us to question the defining purpose of our own existence. Do we live a life worth living? Do we live a life for others or for ourselves?

    And then we have Adam’s wife, Kelley.

    Perhaps what makes this incisive story monumental is not just Adam, but the loving commitment from Kelley. She gave her husband an endless source of encouragement, love, and forgiveness throughout Adam’s struggles with his drug addiction.

    Bottomline, we all have our addictions in life one time or another. But how extraordinary is it when our husbands, wives, family or friends sacrifice themselves at that unavoidable decisive moment of the fight vs flight. Tough love is never easy. Just ask Adam’s parents as they stepped aside from doing what was easy to afford their son a chance for redemption.

    There’s one word that cements all the love written all over the pages of this book. Simply, it is Adam’s faith. No question about it, without the portrayal of his love for Jesus Christ, this book would not be genuinely authentic as it now is. Needless to say, his faith was exalted as his life was awe-inspiring.

    In summation, this book is about a fun spirited young man from Hot Springs Arkansas who then served on the same Navy SEAL team that ultimately killed Osama bin Laden. A man who spent time in jail with an addiction. A family that never gave up on him. A man who found his faith and inspired America.

    Lastly, a man who made the ultimate sacrifice while on his final SEAL team tour in the Hindu Kush mountains in Afghanistan.

    Let’s be honest. If Adam had his say in this, the book would not end here.

    The next chapter will depend on you.

    Eric-about 14 months ago, I adopted a young man named Ryan. Ryan is 32 today. Ryan has been through more trauma as a child and as an adult than anyone else know. Ryan told me that this (FEARLESS) was his favorite book. He told me that 7 months ago. I downloaded it on Kindle but I just haven’t been able to complete it until today.

    Knowing Ryan and reading this book, brought me to tears. Ryan lost his best friend to suicide, after he returned from Afghanistan back in 2013.

    Ryan served in the Army in Afghanistan for over a year; he was a medic. Most of his friends are dead now. His biological father and stepfather are dead. I am proud to be his father today. Ryan has PTSD and ongoing injuries from 2013. Ryan is considered currently medically disabled. The way the government has treated him in the past, medically, is appalling. . Today with all these people out rioting, I am outraged that nothing is being done. My son risked his life for his country. The scars in his life remain deep and severe. I am so grateful to be able to be Ryan’s father now.

    FEARLESS was a fantastic book. It gave a very clear description of what goes on in military families. There is such sacrifice by these families. The salary is poor. I’m going to spend the rest of my life praying for my son Ryan, and taking care of him,, as he will let me and as I’m able. Because of all the trauma in his life, it is difficult at times to maintain a relationship with him. We did not see each other or talk on the phone from January 6 until the morning of memorial day. I kept praying and also reached out to a local church to pray for Ryan and myself. They prayed around the clock for three weeks. Day 17, Ryan just walked through the door. I know it was God. Focusing on God is the only direction we should be focusing. Thank you for writing this book. I am so proud of my son Ryan. Every day, he faces physical and psychological pain. I can’t imagine what he goes through every day. Sometimes, I get really frustrated and discouraged, because I want to have a better relationship with my son. Sometimes, think it’s me, but I also know, from all of Ryan’s previous trauma that he’s been through, that that plays a big part. I cannot begin to identify with all that trauma. That is the impact of FEARLESS on me.
