"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!
