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 center and as my great grandmother once said Don t take away someone s belief that makes them happy unless you can give them something better instead And I can t I am an Atheist but if faith helped Adam Brown to go from addict to Navy SEAL and do all these important deeds, then I d say his faith was something good Faith should be something personal anyway which is why I don t like organized religions aka The Church or other institutions because they try to shove it down your throat.So this is the story of a man who gave his life for his friends brothers Yes, it s no spoiler Adam Brown is dead This is a story published post mortem But it s not just a story about his years in the military, how he climbed the ranks It s a deeply personal story about the man wearing the uniform, about how he hit rock bottom, about his family And it tore me apart It s the reason I didn t even let it show on my currently reading shelf I just wasn t sure if I could finish it I had to put it down quite often and would sit on the couch crying.We have a man who grew up in a pretty normal way in a pretty normal neighbourhood and family But then he became a drug and alcohol addict, hurt his parents and friends emotionally , got arrested, hit rock bottom In the aforementioned rehab clinic he swore to turn his life around I think it had a lot to do with him seeing his mother break down when he got arrested, feeling that he broke her heart.So he went to a recruitment office and said he wanted to join the Navy to, ultimately, become a Navy SEAL because anything less wouldn t do for this guy However, they usually don t accept people who have gotten arrested previously a rule which I like, actually A lucky coincidence meant that he knew someone whose picture was hanging on the wall of the office He made the officer call that man the father of a friend and that guy vouched for him Why I have no idea Some call it destiny serendipity, some luck In the end, it doesn t matter He vouched, the Navy accepted Adam Brown and he became a SEAL.Of course, the book also details how laboursome his way into this elite group was and it s only right since it really is crazy what these men have to go through but also justifyable.To me, the real craziness began only then Because during a mission Adam Brown lost the eyesight on his right eye He was supposed to be honourably discharged BUT REFUSED He made them let him stay I can t even wrap my mind around how he managed that He went on another mission some time later and was hurt again This time, his humvee flipped over, landing on his right hand, cutting off 4 of his fingers They were surgically reattached but as you can imagine the hand never worked properly again So they wanted to honourably discharge him again AND HE REFUSED AGAIN He became a leftie instead Yeah, because that is what everyone would do Right He went on to become a member of the best of this elite team the famous SEAL Team 6 or whatever their true name is.I mean, picture it this guy could only see right on his left eye, had to relearn EVERYTHING with his left hand arm which means his stance, his balance, everything had to be relearned and was still good enough to be a SEAL Team 6 member This just blew my mind.And then the story turns to that fateful mission that cost him his life and I can t help but think what if What if the helicopter could have picked them up on the mountain so they hadn t had to go donwhill for 1 hour What if they had gotten him to a doctor sooner Would he have made it Considering how strong he was, that definitely is a possibility.What broke my heart was the fact that this man gave so much over so many years, never giving up and it still wasn t enough It s not fair.And then we have his wife How my heart bleeds for her although I don t even know her Military wives in general always have my sympathy To me, they are warriors too The silent ones Having to stay behind, often raising children almost on their own, having to show a brave face, ensuring that their husbands have a home to come back to and give them emotional support so their husbands can do what they have to do To think how much Adam Brown s wife must have suffered through all the injuries she might have had to live with the sense of dread that her husband s luck would have to run out soon or she might have given in to complete hope that, surely, after everything he had already survived he would not die now and I don t know which would have been worse.It makes me shudder.As a conclusion I don t read many contemporary military books because there often is too much pathos for me or at least pathos of the wrong sort that feels fake or I question the accuracy especially when the military members didn t write the books themselves or when it is about top secret stuff because I can t imagine the respective government to sign off on such data being released already Instead, I usually focus on military history books But this book gave a glimpse at the man Adam Brown, not just the operator and at his unyielding will to protect, to make the world a better place, or to at least make up for the bad things he had done previously.I don t believe in heroes any but if I did, Adam Brown would be one.So to everyone considering reading this book ignore the writing style and the so called Christian propaganda if that puts you off, but read the book anyway this man s life should be known and remembered

    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 the wa 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 the way, he was a member of the Green Team on SEAL team six the same SEAL team that killed Osama Bin Laden Again, I struggle with words to give this book a full review.Author Eric Blehm takes us to the beginning, where it all started for Adam Brown Early on, you are pulled into his life and his story Blehm does an incredible job of crafting words in such a way that make you feel like you know Adam too As you read you feel like you know his entire family His failures frustrate you His struggle with addiction saddens you You feel the weight of pour decisions and repeated struggles to overcome the voice that is addiction Not until about halfway through the book do we begin to share in his journey to become a Navy SEAL An entire book could be written on the unbelievable physical and mental challenge involved in making it to the elite team which Adam Brown achieved.My emotions were moved to the point of tears at the end of the book as Adam made the ultimate sacrifice for this country, for you, for me Because we are pulled into the story, the knock on the door to his wife to inform her felt like you were right there He was father He was a husband He was a man of faith To best describe it, I ll share what the author wrote in his Afterward Despite the impact and magnitude of the bin Laden mission, Adam s story stands on its own Throughout his life he inspired scores of people, and his story has continued to change the lives of many including mine He s reminded me to appreciate every moment with my family, to be goofy and not grumpy, to get back up no matter how hard I might get slapped down, to sometimes buy my children a cupcake when I pick up coffee in the morning but to call it a muffin because , as Adam would tell Savannah, as long as you call them muffins, they re okay to eat for breakfast And though I hadn t opened a Bible inthan twenty five years, his faith encouraged me to question my own questioning about religion.I can t think of a better way to describe this book than that I too felt these same challenges after reading it It s fitting that I finished the final words of the book, closed it and spent the afternoon with my daughters doing crafts and played catch with my son I did so, not out of guilt, but out of honor I did so in a country where we are free to do whatever we dream and wish to do I did so with the freedom of a father because the sacrifice of another Friends, I HIGHLY recommend that you pick up a copy of this book It will remind you how blessed we are as fathers, as wives, as Americans Because of the fearless sacrifice of men and women like Adam Brown.I give Fearless a 5 out of 5

    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 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, are the obviously beautiful souls shining brightly through this mess Beyond the shaky structure of this poorly told story are the genuinely admirable individuals whose hard work, failures, and triumphs culminate in the ultimate loss and sacrifice of one man Adam Brown His wife, Kelley Brown, their children, and Adam s parents, siblings, and entire family all had a hand in playing intricate roles in creating, defining, supporting, and loving him every step of the way.This book is very heavy on the religion, and it s something I wasn t necessarily expecting I wish I d known, too, so here s a warning to anyone out there who may be considering buying the book lots of expectation that a Christian is reading this book and I felt a little bit as if I were being forced to worship It s difficult to explain here, but what I think I m trying to say is that the writer, mid sentence, stops telling the story in chronological order and suddenly transitions into an external entity who s giving his praise to Adam or the family at that given moment It was very jarring and uncomfortable, and I was VERY put off by it.Overall, however, I find it very easy to separate Blehm from Adam Brown, Kelley Brown, and the family I am a little disappointed for them that this was the person they chose person they had to go with as the deliverer of the message Beyond that, though, their amazing son husband brother father is a hero whose light shines through and shines on On this day, Memorial Day, and every day Thank you for what you did for us, thank you for our freedom, and thank you for your sacrifice, Adam Brown

    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 bridges e 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 bridges etc It also led to his unfortunate death in Afghanistan He was a man with a lot of personal demons he battled.So read this book with an open mind The writing is decent overall I think you will be happy to have read it But again, I personally will not shelve this book among the greatest books I have read Simply a good read

    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 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 Adam s story If you know someone who would benefit from reading this book, please try to get a copy in their hands The paperback edition is being published now and would male a perfect gift I will be buying copies to give away

    I don t know whatto 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 t I don t know whatto 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 not only be an American but his story provides us with hope that no matter how bad things are, no matter how low we sink, there is always a way out In Adam s case he found Jesus I can t say that I m an overly spiritual person, but even if one doesn t have the same faith or beliefs as Adam the message is the same keep trying and never give up Adam did some pretty horrible things in his short life He hurt those he loved and those who loved him, repeatedly His weaknesses however did not make him a bad person I think in the end, for all his trials and failures they actually made him a better person I for one took his storyto heart because he was not perfect His efforts in overcoming huge obstacles, both self inflicted and those out of one s control should be a role model to us all

    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 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 he decided to go into the Navy to try and better his life He had a friend who was in high command and was able to get everything he did waived in order for Adam to seek out his dream of joining the Navy and becoming a Navy SEAL.The journey he takes you on is nothing short of unbelievable His relationship with family and God makes you want to revisit what you believe in life is important.This story is worth reading I gave it a four star rating only because it does get heavy into the religion and for me that dragged the story down, but, it isn t a story that tries to get you to turn to God If you want to read a story about a true American hero, read this.James S
