Reviews - What do customers think about Halftime: Changing Your Game Plan from Success to Significance?
This book hit home! Mar 27, 2007
When I decided to take an early retirement from my company of 30+ years, a friend recommended that I read this book. I couldn't believe how it hit the mark with me. Granted, I am what I would consider to be a 'spiritual person', but aside from that, Buford really hit the nail on the head with many of the feelings that I had been experiencing of late.. That is, the entire notion of putting 'significance' ahead of 'success' in life. Isn't that what everyone would want to leave as his/her legacy? I enjoyed the book, and found it to be relevant, interesting, and a fast read. I recommend it for anyone who is moving into a mid-50s 'retirement' period, sorting out the opportunities that are out there.
Outstanding Feb 10, 2007
If you're looking for a life of significance after success, or even if you feel you have had very little success, this book will make you significant in serving others. A must-read. Get it now, and don't delay. It will change your life.
Half Time Jan 17, 2007
An excellent resource for anyone in career transitioning...insightful and thought provoking while reassuring to the reader that much of the anxiety associated with career transitions is normal. Self reflection and devoted planning time are required to get the absolute most out of this book.
Concept vs. Applicability Aug 9, 2006
This was a nice story about a guy making a journey from success to significance in the second half of his life. Unfortunately, most of us don't have the financial resources to do things the way he did them. Conceptually, what he is saying is appropriate. However, most of us don't have the millions that allow for extended time off to reflect, seek the help of consultants, conduct low cost probes, etc.
If you're looking for a nice inspirational story of one man's journey in faith, this is a good read. If you're looking for some strong Biblical insights on which to make some life change, this is not the book to use for that.
Superb for middle-age Aug 2, 2006
Superb book for who is approaching, is at, or has just gone over the middle age (30-60). Challenges the reader to stop, evaluate life, distiguish the pattern of search for succcess of the first half, and plan for the second half. The second half is where the game is won or lost; therefore, the reader is challenged to plan his/her life for significance.
