Excerpt from the 20th Anniversary Edition of Halftime

When I wrote this book, I honestly thought sales would cap around 5,000.  Now, twenty years later, I’m amazed at how wrong I was in my limited expectation. I am truly humbled by the incredible impact it has had on so many people all over the world.   I’ve learned of this impact first hand over the years, as thousands of people have called, sent letters and emails, and even come by my Dallas office to tell me face-to-face about this crazy season of life I termed “halftime.”

Through these years, the idea of Halftime and mid-life renewal has been refined, enhanced, proven and expanded, in part by the participation of thousands of readers like you from all around the world.

The Halftime Institute emerged from this overwhelming response of readers who knew they needed help to implement in their life what they learned from the book. The Halftime Institute has become the University for your Second Half, with proven processes, seasoned faculty and coaches who are always learning from each other and those they serve.
