Overview

Broke but Not Broken is the true account of a Phoenix Homebuilder who went from a net worth of $46
million to Bankrupt just 18 months later. It is a very small account of the Housing collapse. It is however a big account of a man, a man much like each and every one of us. A man who made it to the big time only to have it all ripped away. The company and Mike Roberts were forced into Bankruptcy. The gritty account of the events surrounding the collapse are well documented here. As Mr. Roberts looked for an out it appeared the only way out was to end it all. In the final moment he rose from the floor and decided to fight on. Broke but not Broken takes you on the ride of a rich Scottsdale home builder to a man near death and staggering bitter defeats. Left penniless and divorced he somehow found the strength to start over and to rebuild and reinvent himself.

The writing style of this book is extremely raw and is assured to keep the reader captivated and racing to read on. You will cry and you will cheer, you will believe that there is hope even when death seems like the only option. You will visit places that you have never been before and you will sit in the seat of the
Author. You will live the American Dream and you will ask yourself it is a dream that is worth living.
Clearly, one of the most critical books ever written for those who wish to know what it is like to be a millionaire only to be thrown to the wolves. It is also the book to read if you want to believe that when death seems so clear there is in fact life and that you can rise again.

Broke But Not Broken travels from the arms of defeat to a robust winning attitude. Initially, when survival was the only torch the book soon transforms into a story of victories and the will to be better than ever before. It is filled with many winning philosophies and is designed to help us all rise from defeat to live another day, and not only live another day but to win and to be the very best you can be.
