Overview

American hero Louis Zamperini shares his wisdom, values, lessons, secrets, and other insights gleaned from his remarkable experiences in this powerful and inspiring book.

Louis Zamperini’s struggle to survive the unimaginable—brought to life in his autobiography Devil at My Heels and in Laura Hillenbrand’s #1 New York Times bestseller and its film adaptation, Unbroken—elevated him to his rightful place among our country’s greatest heroes. Now, Zamperini reveals the wisdom he learned along his incredible journey.

Faced with one misfortune after another—a plane crash, the shark-filled waters of the Pacific, a brutal Japanese prisoner of war camp—Zamperini could have given up a thousand times. Instead, he chose to see every hardship as a challenge that he was determined to overcome. Enduring the perils of World War II, Zamperini continued to find adventure at every turn—from crashing weddings to facing down Frank Sinatra in a fight to getting mixed up in a bank robbery. Until his death at 97 he remained undaunted; happy, sharp-minded, and healthy, and continued to engage life to its fullest.

In Don’t Give Up, Don’t Give In, he offers never-before told tales that embody his simple, yet essential secrets of success: how his relationship with God, his ever-positive attitude, his constant pursuit of accomplishment—and a healthy dose of mischief—have helped him lead a long and fulfilled life, lessons we can all use to transform our own.

Meet the Author

A son of Italian immigrants, Louis Zamperini was a world-class runner and an Olympic athlete, competing at the 1936 Games in Berlin. At the peak of his career, he left sports to fight for his country as a bombardier in the U.S. Army Air Forces. When his B-24 crashed over the Pacific Ocean in 1943, he was stranded at sea for 47 days, only to be captured by the Japanese and held prisoner for over two years. After the war, he returned to the United States and founded the Victory Boys Camp for wayward youth and became an inspirational speaker. Zamperini's story was told in his autobiography Devil at My Heels and made famous in Laura Hillenbrand's phenomenal #1 bestselling biography Unbroken, which has been made into a major motion picture directed by Angelina Jolie.


David Rensin has written and cowritten thirteen books, five of them New York Times bestsellers. He lives in Los Angeles.
