I got this book after my friend, retired Navy SEAL Captain Bob Schoultz, recommended it to me.
Quick context on the recommender: After going to Stanford on a Navy scholarship, Bob became a SEAL and served for decades. He retired as a Captain. In his last assignment, he was the Director of Leadership and Character Development at the Naval Academy.
So… After a weekend chat preparing for my discussion with his ad hoc SEAL Mental Performance Working Group, I asked him for some book recommendations. He told me I had to read this one. So, of course, I immediately got it. Immediately read it. And, here we are.
Stu Weber, veteran Green Beret, pastor and author of Tender Warrior wrote a testimonial for the book that *perfectly* captures its power. He tells us: “Adam Brown’s zest for life led him down a few dark alleys and more than one dead end. Kindhearted and wild, Adam led a life that lacked direction. God, a woman, and the U.S. Navy gave it to him. Fearless is a love story… several love stories: a man for his woman, a warrior for his team, parents for kids, and soldiers for their country. There is no greater love than that a man lay down his life for his friends. Be warned—reading Fearless will change the way you see the world.”
If that sounds like you’re kind of book, I think you’ll love it as much as I did.
Of course, it’s packed with incredible stories and powerful wisdom. I’m excited to share some of my favorite Ideas so let’s jump straight in.
