Since the release of Halftime in 1994, more than 150,000 people have purchased the book and begun a journey from success to significance. In a way that no one could have predicted, this book has started a widespread movement that views midlife as an opportunity rather than a crisis. It helped men and women between the ages of 35-50 realize that they have at least another thirty years of active, vibrant living ahead of them and that retirement is not the optimal option. But now, readers feel stuck. More than eighty percent of people who began the journey got sidetracked. Now they want to know how to get unstuck. Stuck in Halftime is written for the person who is trying to successfully make it through the midlife journey of half time. It shows readers how to get past the barriers that stand in the way. It outlines eight myths of half time that distract people trying to move from success to significance. It also explains the new rules of this journey, since the old rules of the first half do not work anymore. And it uses stories of those who were stuck in a similar way to illustrate ways to become unstuck. This book is of enormous help to those who heard the still, small voice of God calling them to a life of significance. It is a book of encouragement, hope, and practical guidance.
