However, here see a better, longer piece by CBS Sunday Morning (produced by a high school classmate of mine) May 27, 2012.
Unbroken will be translated into 23 languages worldwide. Japanese is not one of the languages as no publisher in Japan has shown an interest in this bestseller.
Unbroken will be released as a movie sometime in 2013 by Universal and directed by Francis Lawrence.
Later: Here Mr. Zamperini is interviewed back stage at the Tonight Show and adds a bit more about his 1936 Olympics roommate, Jesse Owens.
