Publisher's Summary

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 number one New York Times best-seller 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.

Editors Select, November 2014 - After listening to Laura Hillenbrand's captivating account of the life of Louis Zamperini in the blockbuster best seller Unbroken, I was transfixed by the inconceivable amount of strength, perseverance, and forgiveness one man could sustain. Now, completed just two days before his death at the age of 97, Don't Give Up, Don't Give In delivers Zamperini's own reflection on his remarkable life journey and the lessons and values gained along the way, further establishing himself as a true American hero. —Regina, Audible Editor
