    "Just ok"

    Listened to it on a trip because someone raved about it.
    It was just ok. Not really exciting or memorable

    "GREAT BOOK AS ONE JOURNEYS THROUGH LIFE!"
    What did you love best about Halftime?

    For people that have lived enough life that they are at a point where they may be asking "Is this all there is to life?", it is very helpful in answering that question.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bob Buford, the author of the book. He was real.


    What about Max Bloomquist’s performance did you like?

    Very easy to listen to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.

    "Nothing new, very superficial"

    First of all the book is too preachy. If you can set aside the fact that is written for christian audience it can be tolerable. But the real issue is that the book doesn't offer the level of depth, insight and action to really face true half time challenges. Rather is the story of a rich man who lost his son and decided to dedicate full time to his church.

    "Religious book disguised as a business book"

    Too much religion for it to be useful to me

    I really wanted to listen and work through it but no luck

    "Like any guidance book, some valid points"

    Being in a job transition, I've read (listened...) the book at a suggestion from a friend. It is hard to accept some of the author guidance considering that he was/is a very wealthy person. It is easy to say that you, in a job transition above 50 years old (let alone younger...) should do whatever you want when you have everything else taken care off. Bills have to be paid and you cannot just take a break in your half time and do that or whatever is in your "box". I do recognize that the author had a tremendous loss in his life (read the book) and that that fact thought him a life changing lesson. However, as you listen for "n" times the words " half time" you start to get a bit tired of it (I had to commit myself to finish the book!!!). Finally, when you realize that there is now a "half time" business to help (rich) people to re-evaluate life, helping them to decide what to do next, you may come to a conclusion that this is not a book for you, although there are a couple ideas that you can use. Now, if you are one of those rich people, that leave everything behind to make more and more money, when a lot is never enough, if you don't care for your spouse and your children (although you say you do...), that ultimately have everything but in reality have nothing (seriously...) this book is for you.

    "Powerful and easy-to-use to read"

    An excellent point of reference for transition and preparing for transition or post transition. A must-read for anyone who thinks, considers, and plots and plans their future.

    "Clarity"

    This is a great book for anyone who senses that life has more meaning than the just being successful. I heard John Maxwell talk about this book in one of his books and it caught interest. Am glad I did because it has helped me answer some very pertinent questions and helped me reshape how I see my second half.

    "Over simplistic"

    I guess I should have paid closer attention to the other reviews on this site. The book gave me two things that could have been included in a pamphlet: 1) Put one thing in the "box"; and 2) List your past competencies and passions. The author claims that he put a J in the box instead of a $. Life decisions are not this black and white. As a Christian, I am guessing that Bob Buford already had a J in his box... Just because you operate a profitable business does not mean that you are so single-minded as to only focus on money. Jesus has and always will be part of my life. I am trying to decide where to apply my experience, and expertise after a long life of working hard in a career. This book did not help me with that decision.
