Publisher's Summary

Life was good for Jorge Newbery. A high school dropout and serial entrepreneur, he had built a real estate empire of over 4,000 apartments across the USA. Taking risks and working tirelessly were the ingredients to his rise. But, he took one risk too many.
An ice storm on Christmas Eve 2004 triggered his collapse. He was maligned, publicly shamed, and financially gutted - even arrested. He lost everything and ended up $26 million in debt.
As he struggled to regain his footing, he spent what he could to get others to lift him up. But no one did. He discovered that there was only one person who could build him back up. To move forward, he crafted a new life's purpose: to help others crushed by unaffordable debts rebuild themselves
Burn Zones is a story of playing life's bad hands and overcoming adversity against the greatest of challenges. It's an inspirational story of a man who was pushed to his mental and physical limits, and came out the other side even stronger.
And, most of all, it's a lesson that you can do the same.

"Anyone who could use some inspiration in their life, or is a fan of the Disney-type inspirational sports movie, this is the book for you." ( Online Book Club)

Great read!

Jorge Newberry has lived a very interesting life and, with his writing style, that translates to a very entertaining memoir full of humor, sadness and most of all, hope. I highly recommend this audiobook.

Very Inspirational!

This book was absolutely awesome! I love the way that the author boldly tells the truth as it is. Many people will be afraid of repercussions. You have to admire someone who can stand up to city officials in the mass media. In my life I have been very much wronged by a city court judge. The complaint board does not seem to care. This book has inspired me to take it to the media. Something that only God knows what the repercussions will be.
