Burn Zones: Playing Life's Bad Hands by Jorge P. Newbery is a non-fiction novel. It was the Book of the Month once, and the Book of the Day several times on OnlineBookClub. It is the autobiography of the author. Jorge started his writing career with this novel. This novel is an inspiration for everybody. No one can become successful with only academic knowledge. You'll need the determination to become an important person in society, and the biggest proof of that is in this novel.

Jorge is the owner of versatile talents. He is a real estate investor, an athlete, an entrepreneur, and an author. After many persuasions, he achieved a place in society for himself. At this time, he lost everything in a natural disaster. But he never surrendered, rather he defeated every danger. Jorge is an inspiration, and every person should learn something from his story.

It was 1973 when Jorge started to work at the age of 7. He was a newspaper delivery boy. Jorge had insistence on doing something from the beginning. After that, Jorge started his own business from his savings at the age of 11. It was an ice-cream business. He started his first daily job at the age of 13.

Jorge's story had success, love, family, and lots of heart touching quotes. That's why I liked the whole novel. I can't put one thing at the top of my favorites. Every emotion and every characteristic of Jorge has been revealed in this novel. People who want to start their own business would get to know lots of business-oriented stuff from this novel.

There was nothing which I didn't like. Jorge shared some priceless quotes in this novel, which I liked a lot. Jorge was a mature child from the very beginning of his life, and this was expressed in his writing. He was earning money at such an early age when most of the children cry for toys. Jorge also shared some pictures of valuable moments of his life. The story was so good that it turned me into a tiny part of his journey.

I rate this novel 4 out of 4 stars. I didn't give it a 3 because I liked the novel very much. I had never enjoyed an autobiography at this level. The novel was professionally edited. I have to say that the editing was flawless. I didn't find any profane words. I am highly recommending this novel. Every person should read this novel at least once.

I reviewed Debt Cleanse and became very agitated with this author's advertising style of writing. I did find his books are information-packed though and some of it may be helpful to others. Good review, especially with the target audience being nailed on the head.
I cannot change the past because it is gone and I cannot tell what tomorrow will be like as it has not happened. What I can do is live today as life is happening now.

I reviewed the Spanish version of this autobiography and also enjoyed it immensely. It's full of tidbits of wisdom.
It was great to see you share my enthusiasm for this book!
