I submitted my review on the book yesterday and am still waiting for it to be published. [fingers crossed]
So, I absolutely loved the book! All of it! Sure, it was a bit shocking to read some parts of it but yeah, still amazing and beautiful. I wanna be that man! I wanna stay strong through every single burn zone of my life and never give up! Wouldn't that be great?

Burn zone is a full score of 4 stars for me. This book is inspirational and I defenitely recommend it to evryone because all of us have experienced burn zones. There are many quotes and phrases in this book that are motivational.

What I really liked about this book is how Newbery always looked for lessons in his failures instead of blaming others or circumstances. I think it is important to sometimes just take a step back and try to see what one did wrong in order to do it better the next time.

I would rate it 4 out of 4. It is one of the most 'real' memoirs that I have read. The author narrates his life story openly and thus the reader is drawn in and also reflects on his/her own burn zones.

I have read the review of burn zones and I loved how the author depicts that everyone has his/her burn zone. No giving up though. This book is a must read.

I gave it a 4 out of 4. He is such an inspiring man! Wish I had his confidence. It's amazing how he never gave up.
