Louis Zamperini: Our Favorite Interview

People often ask SUCCESS Publisher Darren Hardy what his favorite interview has been.

Of the hundreds of successful people he’s interviewed for our audio CD, Darren will tell you that his interview with personal mentor Jim Rohn ranks near the top. But Darren has a new favorite.

His name is Louis Zamperini. Darren writes in this month’s publisher’s letter:

“He is 94 years old and one of the most extraordinary people I have ever met. I meet a lot of successful people, but few whom I would call a tried-and-true hero. To interview him was one of the most memorable treats of my life.”

Here’s a brief clip from the interview; the entire interview is available exclusively in the August 2011 issue. If you have it, you’ve got to listen to it. Really amazing stuff.


Journalist, podcaster and southpaw Shelby Skrhak is the former director of digital content and social media for SUCCESS.com. Before joining SUCCESS magazine, Shelby launched the weekly suburban newspaper Plano Insider, and covered topics ranging from cops and courts to transportation and fashion. Her handwriting should be a font.
