Fearless is a great introduction to the life of a true hero. Heroes are not made in the event in which they gave their lives; they are made in many different choices throughout their lives. Such is true of Adam Brown. His background as a young boy and in the early part of becoming a man did not indicate his heroism. We learn through his life that second chances are always available, and that no one event can define a person's destiny.

Eric Blehm gives a face and a name to the spirit of the Navy Seals. We learn about his personality, his family life, his education, his childhood antics, his mistakes, his marriage, his determination -- all of these factors added up to the person he became. Our country benefited from who he was, as he lived to give the ultimate sacrifice for the rest of us.

The book inspires us, since it focuses on the whole man that Adam Brown became. It does not focus on individual events, but on him. We become personally connected to him through reading about his life and the people whom he loved. Often Seals are mysterious, and anonymous, and therefore it is difficult for us to connect with them on a personal level. But in this book, through the story of Adam Brown, we do. And we are better for it.

This is more than just a biography of a great man. It is tremendous encouragement for everyone who has met someone on the road to being a hero. We could each be part of that process for those around us. The people in Adam's life certainly were that for him.

This is a feel-good book, not because it has a happy ending, but because there are great people in the world, and we get to spend time with one of them named Adam Brown!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from WaterBrook Press in exchange for an honest review.
