Reviews - What do customers think about Halftime (Updated)?
exceptional book May 8, 2008
Though Buford goes on about his life a bit too long at times, it was an exceptional book that really got me thinking. While I am still in my 30's and haven't hit my "midlife crisis" yet, I am glad that I read this book now. Perhaps, I can avoid having a midlife meltdown by taking some of his suggestions and apply them. I would recommend writing down your responses and come back and revise as you proceed through life.
Halftime is a must read! Nov 8, 2007
Halftime is a must read for every person 40 years old or older. In fact it is a required reading for our staff. I highly recommend the book.

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.
