Adam & Kelley Brown a Daring SEAL Team Family You Must Remember. A Riveting True Story.

Repeat Book Review By Larry Fowler on ‘Fearless’!


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 Sacrafice 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 ‘monumnetal’ 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 sacrafice themselves at that unavoidalbe decisive moment of 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 ultimate ‘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 sacrafice 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’.

As a family member I have many memories, though not of Adam due to location but glimpses into his personality traits that weave thru the family. What a blessing to see the ultimate outcome of God’s grace.

AMEN! I finished the book this past Sunday and don’t think I have any more tears in my head! Not just tears of sadness and loss but also tears of joy as I watched God work and know he will continue to work through Kelly, Nathan and Savannah. I bought a copy today to give a young man who is graduating from high school. I know Adam will continue to speak to many through his book!

Hope you are doing well. You and your precious family were in the back of my brain the whole time I read the book. I have such profound respect of the military and their families and the mission that is so clear over there. I just started the book he referred to in his book… only comes in paper copy so I’ll save for you..Stay safe and hugs.

Wonderful and very accurate review. For Adam to make this journey from an apparent hopeless crack addict, to the highest of America’s elite forces, even a member of the same operators that President Obama boldly released upon ben laden to send him to his eternal punishment, Adam and Kelly Brown are truly amazing and inspiring individuals. Their focus on their faith in every part of their life, whether in heated battle fighting for our freedom, or just day to day life at home, is a benchmark for all. “Fearless” is an exceptional book about a true to life “superhero”.
