Burn Zones by Jorge P. Newbery reflects on the life of an entrepreneur, who often compares his journey through life as is riding a bicycle, while preparing for an Olympic sport. It's often hard for people to be open and vulnerable about their lives. To be able to open up to a stranger and give others a scoop of your own mishaps, it's what makes a raw and vulnerable autobiography.
In the book, we often feel drawn to relate to Newbery's difficulties. We feel crushed when we learn about how he would try to help others, but felt no support. We feel joy when we learn about how he was once a star when it came to real estate. And yet, we feel empowered when we learn his new life mission, even when we learn about the fact that he became a leader in the Occupy Wall Street movement.
We often believe that those who are failures, and often rise to fame again, are not humble enough or vulnerable enough in order to share their stories, yet Newbery manages to do so.
Due to this I rate this book, 4 out of 4 stars.
