    1. *takes a deep breath*This is going to be hard (as you can see, it took me one hell of a long time to get through this).The motto for this reading experience: empathy sucks!I will not give this book any stars. Not because it was so bad that 1 star would be too much but because I don't think I can quantify this book in any sort of way.The writing was indeed bad and I understand why some reviews call it Christian propaganda. However, Adam Brown, about whom this book is, did turn to God in a rehab c [...]

    2. Book Review - Fearless by Eric BlehmBiographies have been a solid staple of my reading diet for the past few months. Looking deep into the lives of great people is educational, inspiring, and helps me become more of the person that I'm created to be. For most of my life, I dreaded reading the biographies that was assigned to read, or given by friends and families. But recently, I have discovered that learning from the lives of others has incredible benefits for my life.Last night, in tears, I fi [...]

    3. Last week I received a copy of a book called “Fearless” by Eric Blehm to review. Little did I know when I started this book that by the end of it, I would be moved to emotion like I rarely am. This book is a game changer on so many levels. I honestly won’t be able to find the words in this review to express how much I wish people would get a copy and read it for themselves. It is the remarkable story of one man, his story, his struggles, his humility, his family, his addictions and oh, by [...]

    4. I struggled like crazy to get through this book. I love Adam and Kelley and the people within this story, but the writing is horrible and trying to read through it was not unlike choking through the worst dry sandwich ever. I'm still hoping that the reason for its juvenile pacing and shallow glimpses into these extraordinary peoples' lives is because Blehm wants to get to the meat of the matter as quickly as possible. No matter, it's strange and unpalatable. What I do want to commend, however, a [...]

    5. I think a lot of people rate this as 5 starts because anything less may be considered to be not "patriotic". The fact is that this book is good, but not great. It is an interesting read at points, less than interesting at other points.Adam Brown is certainly a hero, no doubt. He was a man with a reckless personality, shown with his addiction to drugs & alcohol, his extreme religious behavior, as well as some of the things he did in his personal life (jumping off of moving vehicles over bridg [...]

    6. ***If you only read one book this year, make it this one in honor of this courageous SEAL!!!Eric Blehm, New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author’s new release, “Fearless” arrives Tuesday, May 22. It’s an amazing narrative about “SEAL Team SIX’s most legendary operator,” Adam Brown, a member of the same SEAL team “… counterterrorism unit that took down Osama bin Laden…”Although “Fearless” is Adam’s story, it’s also the multifaceted story of an elite, [...]

    7. I don't know what more to say other than this was not only an excellent story, but the author did a wonderful job telling it. I take it back, I do have a couple other things to add Adam Brown was the kind of person that inspires others around him to want to be better people. This is not because he was a perfect person himself, far from it actually, but he tried, hard. In his efforts he motivated those around him to strive harder to become all they could. People like Adam Brown make me proud to n [...]

    8. I was reluctant to begin reading this book because I know Adam's father and brother. By knowing how the story ends, I knew it was going to be very difficult for me to read.Well, I only thought I knew the story. After reading FEARLESS, I have a whole new understanding of what drug addiction can do to a family. Seeing how Adam was able to overcome so much in his short life through his faith and hard work is greatly inspiring. I have heard many stories of people who found renewed hope by reading Ad [...]

    9. Everyone has been hearing about the Navy SEAL novel "No Easy Day". I personally think the guy who wrote it may have put himself and family and other SEAL team members in harmsway.I am going to tell you about what I think about Adam Brown (Navy SEAL) and this biography that was written about him. He started out as a high school athlete, lost his way and got hooked on; coke, crack, meth and almost anything else you can think of. He was arrested several times because of the drugs. After two years h [...]

    10. Wow wow. wow! Done and everything from halfway through is even more so now. Love it! Gives me even more pride and gratitude in our Military and Allied Forces More than halfway through I could hardly put this one down last night I have found that what touches me the most lately in what I am reading is where the story is based on a true story. I want more from my library than my occasional "wonderfully written" romance novels (and there are sooo many great ones, that I just have not gotten posted [...]

    11. One of Adam Brown’s final wishes, written by hand on his CACO form, was that his spiritual testimony—his complete story—be told, including “my life before I met Jesus Christ and Kelley.” You can appreciate now just how fearless Adam had been when he requested others to share that dark period [of drugs and addiction] from his past. Even in death, he selflessly and publicly risked tainting his own legacy so that others might be inspired to seek faith and overcome their own struggles. Exc [...]

    12. Fearless? You would be surprised to know that this book is a love story. Every book about heroes is a love story.Although this book would likely not attract a woman to read, it would be a mistake to think of it as a book about war or fighting, unless you would consider that war the internal one that every person faces.I could not adequately describe all the areas of life the writer covers in the pages, the military and comradeship not even being the one most outstanding to me. It really is a lov [...]

    13. WOW! Thats all that comes to mind. Alot of military memoirs (especially SEALS Books) spend the first 5 chapters covering BUD/S Training. If you have read books before you often get bored with reading the the same breakdowns of how hard,tough and grueling the training is. I am NOT taking away from this at all as these are warriors. Fearless brings you into WHO Adam really was. From a goofy kid, prankster and respectful child to his dark days battling addiction and jail time. To read about someone [...]

    14. Adam Brown's life ended in an isolated military clinic in the mountains of Afghanistan, his body riddled with AK-47 bullet holes from Taliban militia. However, Adam Brown's legacy lives on, described in his biography by author Eric Blehm. The book, Fearless,released today (May 22) is a moving account of the struggles, redemption, and sacrifice of Adam Brown.Adam Brown was a Navy SEAL operator serving in Afghanistan with the elite DEVGRU team, otherwise known as SEAL Team Six - the group that to [...]

    15. This book is not your typical SEAL story, although all of them are inspiring examples of great men that sacrifice more than we can imagine to honor the patriot blood that runs through their veins to protect this great country. This story about Adam Brown is that and so much more. In the end, I could summarize that this book is about love. Love of a forgiving and strengthening God, love of a great woman, love of country, love of family, and love of the SEAL brotherhood. Love. Not a word that you [...]

    16. This book was utterly HEARTWRENCHINGand captivatingawe-inspiringflabbergastingGah. The author did an amazing job with Adam Brown's story. I felt like I knew him and everything he went through. I was so PROUD of everything that he overcame.I fell in love with his friends and everyone in the Navy Seal community and TO KNOW that they ALL died 2 weeks after this book was written in a helicopter crash shot down absolutely rips me to pieces.:'(This is a MUST read for any woman or man who loves heroism [...]

    17. This book set out to accomplish two things: 1. tell the story of SEAL Adam Brown who made the ultimate sacrifice and 2. show the human-side of SEALs. In these objectives, this book rates 5 stars in my opinion. Adam Brown was a truly remarkable individual that sank to crazy lows but then righted himself to become one of the most elite warriors in the world as part of SEAL Team SIX. His story is truly inspirational. One of the best parts about this book was that it gave a view of the human-side of [...]

    18. This book will touch you. It's not the regular book about a fallen service person. Here we take a more personal look at the life of a human beinghis family, their lives and how death effects them.It can be hard to read at times (at least it was for me). I'm not sure what words can or should be used here. It's not a book I'd say I enjoyed or liked. It is a book the fills a place that needs filling.

    19. Incredible story. Simply a must read. Adam Brown was a true hero, a real hero with struggles and failures, yet an incredible passion for life and an incredible determination. I just finished this, and I am speechless. Read it.

    20. FEARLESS is typically a book you would find men reading. For some reason, I am drawn to stories of men who have sacrificed their lives or given their service for our country through the military. This is Adam Brown’s life story, from Hot Springs, Arkansas, and it has touched my heart in a million different ways. He was proud to be from the state of Arkansas, which you will see as you read through the book.As it states in the book, Adam was born three minutes after his twin sister, Manda, and i [...]

    21. 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 [...]

    23. An emotional biography of a SEAL TEAM SIX operator name Adam Brown, who was killed in August 2011. An incredible story: I don't think I've ever read such a real and powerful account of drug addiction than I did in this book (which is worth buying the book in of itself) and how he failed so many times; yet, it's also a story of faith and how Jesus Christ changed his life around, and through him others as well. Based upon interviews of SEALs, family members and his widowed wife, it is also balance [...]

    24. "Fearless" by Eric Blehm is the true story of Navy Seal Adam Brown who was killed in Afghanistan in 2010 leaving behind a wife and 2 children. It is a story that not only shows his whole life with no holds barred, but also encourages us to live our own lives fearlessly. He was a Christian and lived out his faith - showing us how to be warriors in the true sense.Even though I expected to be moved by the book (he does die, and you know that going in), I didn't realise the journey it would take me [...]

    25. Fearless was a gripping story of love, devotion, and courage. Although I thought I knew a great deal about drug addiction and what it took to overcome it, I learned so much more. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has a family member who is fighting a similar battle. Eric Blehm has give the reader a detailed and truthful picture of Adam Brown--his victories and his faith, as well as his demons, all wrapped up in a page turning story. As a bonus the reader is taken into the world of [...]

    26. I wish I could give this book more stars. For every praying parent of a prodigal son, this story of the part Christ and family played in the life of a drug addicted young man who overcame his addictions to become a premiere American hero is a story of hope and encouragement. It made me even more proud to be an American to read of the bravery and commitment of those who put their life on the line to go through the rigorous training necessary and to execute missions against unbelievable odds to se [...]

    27. Received this book as a gift from a friend of Adam Brown's parents. I was almost afraid to read it because I knew it would be sad. And it was, But it is also filled with hope, encouragement and inspiration. God took a young man whose life was in shambles and rebuilt that life, moulding Adam Brown into a man of courage and character. The title 'Fearless' means one thing at the beginning of the book, but takes on much deeper meaning by the end. The book is well-written, not too technical for those [...]

    28. I asked a newly minted Navy Seal what's the one SEAL book that he would recommend and Fearless did not disappoint. Very few books have left me a better person for having read it, and Adam Brown's story did that for me. His bravery, spirituality and toughness speaks for itself. Adam Brown's example as a friend, husband and father make this a worthwhile read for anyone.Ultimately such a sad story and one that sticks with you for days after reading it. What a guy

    29. The story of Adam Brown is FIVE STAR reading. It was well worth every minute invested in hearing how a young man overcame a serious drug addiction, found faith in Jesus Christ, developed character traits that earned him the respect of everyone who knew him, then overcame "impossible" odds to be accepted into one of the most elite groups of soldiers in the US military. Eric Blehm does a good job of bringing Adam brown to life and portraying him as the hero he became. The ending of FEARLESS is, of [...]
