I give the impressive biographical story of Jorge Newbury an 4 out of 4 stars rating. Burn Zone ia written by Gorge P. Newbury. This novel focuses on the rise and fall of his employment history from an early age to present day.
At the very young age of 7, Jorge convinced the local newspaper that he was old enough, strong enough and responsible enough to deliver the daily papers on his bicycle. This was the beginning of his determination to become a successful entrepreneur. He later added to his résumé a bicycle ice cream delivery service, a punk rock record producer and owner, an olympic trials bike racer, and a real estate and mortgage industry executive.
Jorge was highly successful in his endeavors and would move on to other employment because he would become bored. He seeked to be actively challenged. He wanted to excel at all his goals.
Jorge's family was extremely supportive of him. They aided him in many various ways throughout his life. He had a close relationship with his family, especially his father. I would have liked to have more insight into his relationships with friends and family. His relationships were briefly described in this story. I would have enjoyed more depth to get more insight to his personality. Jorge is a very intriguing person.
Jorge's fate turned when he renovated a large apartment complex in the midwest. A devastating storm and local government officials brought Jorge to financial ruin. He was instrumental in bringing neighborhood reform to the African-American community that lived in that area. This was all brought to a catastrophic ending.
Burn Zone was a fast and easy read because the editing was excellent. I didn't find any errors in spelling, grammar or punctuation. This book was a pleasure to read with no interruptions.
I would recommend this book to all adult readers. It would definitely appeal to anyone needing motivation in improving their current life situation. Anyone who has had a low time in their life would be encouraged to see how Jorge has overcome a loss.
I liked reading Jorge's story. He was very brave to tell it. This book touches on some racial issues. I would have liked to have more information on his views and experiences. With the current situation in America, I think it is very relevant for this time in all our lives.
