Timed to the release of Angelina Jolie’s blockbuster film adaptation of the bestseller UNBROKEN, an inspirational new book by American hero Louis Zamperini, collecting his wisdom, values, lessons, secrets, and other insights gleaned from his remarkable life.
In Laura Hillenbrand’s #1 New York Times bestseller and its 2014 film adaptation, UNBROKEN, the remarkable story of Louis Zamperini’s struggle to survive the unimaginable instantly granted him status as one of our country’s greatest heroes. Now, in DON’T GIVE UP, DON’T GIVE IN, Zamperini himself opens up to share the wisdom he has collected along his incredible journey.
After his plane crashed into the Pacific Ocean during World War II, leaving him stranded at sea for 47 harrowing days, Louis Zamperini was finally rescued—only to spend the next two years in a brutal Japanese prisoner of war camp. Faced with one misfortune after another, Zamperini could have given up a thousand times. Instead he chose to turn every hardship into a challenge—and a challenge he would overcome. Even after the perils of World War II were well behind him, Zamperini continued to find adventure at every turn—from crashing weddings, to standing up to Frank Sinatra in a fight, to getting mixed up in a bank robbery. Today, at 97 years old, he’s happy, sharp-minded, and healthy. His secrets of success are simple, yet essential. In DON’T GIVE UP, DON’T GIVE IN, he teaches us how his relationship with God, his ever-positive attitude, his constant pursuit of accomplishment—and a healthy dose of mischief—have helped him lead the long and fulfilled life he looks back on today.
