Burn Zones: Playing Life's Bad Hands by Jorge P. Newbery is an autobiography where Jorge talks about the challenges of his life, which he called burn zones and how he overcame them. The book began with Jorge's cycling career. He rode with top riders and participated in top tournaments. He later joined the music industry, with many police clashes. However, he recorded success with the real estate business. He is a native of Argentina, but his father moved his family to America, where he spent most of his life. Jorge ran into debt after buying Woodland Meadows, this was a burn zone. However he overcame it, when he formed AHP and married Verria.

What I liked most about the book was how the author arranged the chapters. The author told the story to inspire the reader. The author pointed out that he did not allow burn zones to discourage him, rather he overcame to achieve success. His father was a risk taker. Jorge believes that one can do well and do good at the same time. He formed companies that alleviated the sufferings of people as he received financial success at the same time. That's what he called doing good and doing well. There is nothing I disliked most about the book. 

Burn zones according to the author should not depress us, but we should overcome them. Burn zones are challenges, but they are meant to be overcomed. Jorge believes in helping people. He believes companies should solve people's problems, and not make things difficult for the lower class.

 Jorge would convert an abandoned project to an asset, that empowers people. He did that many times in this book, making homes more available to families. Jorge bought properties and had tenants in them. He cared for his tenants. Jorge wasn't the type that lives outside the property where the tenants live, not knowing their challenges. He lived inside there with them, and tackled their challenges. 

This book is meant for those who read books for inspiration. A lot of things are inspirational about the book. Books that talk about overcoming obstacles motivate, this is an example. This book is not meant for people who read only fiction, since this book is a nonfiction. I saw very few typos and grammatical errors while reading. So I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars , the book is professionally edited. In conclusion, this book belongs to the motivational genre.

The book is a simple narrative of the author‚Äôs life and his experience, rather than a preachy ‚Äúhow-to guide‚ÄĚ to instant success. Loved reading it. I really enjoyed your review. ūüôā

I have been debating on reading this book ever since it popped up as a book to review. However, I am not normally a non-fiction fan when reading for pleasure. It sounds like there are elements that are more story-driven, however, so maybe I'll give it a shot.
