A quality that is found in every sportsman is his spirit of not giving up. The count of attempts may increase, but his will to achieve is never lost. During his lessons, a biker is taught not to look back. Applying the same principle in the race called life, Jorge P. Newbery cleared all the hurdles, fulfilled his desires and won the race. Life is full of ups and downs, one time or another there's a win or lose. Also, there is a thin line between taking risks and taking calculative risks. Sometimes, those who hadn't lost any race, taste defeat. The writer's autobiography Burn Zones: Playing Life's Bad Hands is a lesson to those who take excessive risks and then falls. How a millionaire lost his everything and then cleared a debt of 26 million dollars, it is a story to tell. How a half age biker beats the champion and how he has maintained his charisma, it is a story to be given credit.
Owning a business at the age of eleven and quitting college at sixteen to follow his passion were some of the bold steps taken by the writer. Living the most of his life and in his way, he developed quite a habit of always winning. Ever supportive parents played a major role in his decisions and made him a bike racer, successful entrepreneur, real-estate investor and of course the author of this book. Risking and succeeding were going fine when an investment became a turning point in his life and put him in debt of millions. The writer was crushed, but he gets over the debt by learning from his own mistakes. Starting fresh is never easy will he be able to leave the past behind and start fresh? Was the debt really because of his own mistakes or a vicious plotting to fail him?
The writer's autobiography has something to teach with every event of his life. This non-fictional book is a great way to learn lessons. It teaches us to have dreams, to fight for them and to accomplish them. The writer shared with us his story to teach us how to deal with the burn zones that we face in our lives. The narration is done by the writer in 10 chapters. The book is written in 377 pages.
I was intrigued just by the fact that the writer started earning at the age of eleven, I mean when I was a kid of eleven, I was worried about what chocolate to eat. Furthermore, I am amazed at how big the amount of the debt was and how fluently he cleared it. I loved his willingness to win the race and his calculative tactics during his cycling career. I liked his relationship with his parents. His respect for them is remarkable. His optimism is the reason he is there where he is, however, it was also the reason for his fall. I am so glad that the writer conveyed his tale that is full of inspiration. There is no reason to hate the book.
The language used in the text is agreeable to convince its readers. This is an absolute work without profanity and eroticism. Although it does have a few grammatical errors, still it is unreasonable to take away the stars. The readers who want to get inspired, who are not happy with the hardships of their lives must read this book. Those who search for adventure will also like this book as the sport is an important element of the book.
The counts of burn zones and their dealing in the writer's life are incredibly cited. I give it 4 out of 4 stars. It is by far the best autobiography that I have read.
