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 Zamperiníђةs struggle to survive the unimaginable, brought to life in his autobiography Devil at My Heels and in Laura Hillenbrand́'s #1 New York Times bestseller and its film adaptation, Unbroken elevated him to his rightful place among our countrýs 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

"Don't Give Up, Don't Give In" is a readable book in mainly short chapters.
Zamperini talks about his life as a track star, a U.S. Air Force bombardier in the Second World War, his recovery from alcoholism and his conversion to Christianity, thanks to Billy Graham's dynamic influence on him. I managed to read a few chapters of the religious section and gave it up as chiefly an attempt to proselytize. The descent of the book into religion spoiled it for me. By comparison, Laura Hillenbrand's "Unbroken" is a work of literature, but not "Don't Give Up, Don't Give In."

More insight into Louis Zamperini's life. A good follow up if you've read Unbroken. And good advice, too!
