Gut Instinct: Torrance-based Health Ade Kombucha Drinks Up Newfound Success

Along with her husband and best friend, a Torrance–based entrepreneur pioneers a kombucha company and promotes a healthy lifestyle … one bottle at a time.

Still Unbroken

Louis Zamperini. Since its November 2010 debut, Unbroken, the much-anticipated second book from Seabiscuit author Laura Hillenbrand, has sold well more than a million copies and spent 66 weeks and counting atop the NY Times best-seller list. The book recounts the extraordinary story of a former Olympian, World War II POW and national hero. With the phenomenal success of Unbroken, new generations have been intro-duced to this heroic man and inspired by his unforgettable story. Among Zamperini’s many fans are Southbay photographer Jeff Berting and yours truly. And so it was, on a brilliantly sunny winter morning, that Jeff, his wife, Siri, and I drove up a winding Hollywood Hills road to Louis Zamperini’s home for a once-in-a-lifetime experience to meet, photograph and interview this bona fide living legend.
