What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

'Bob's words are a burning bush calling us away from retirement and into 'refirement.' Read and get ready for the best part of your life!' — Max Lucado

'Nearly everyone past 40 has a choice. Do I drift into old age? Or do I believe the best years of my life are still ahead of me? If you choose the second alternative, you will need a game plan, and this book will help you design it.' — Lyle E. Schaller

'With this book, there are no more excuses for postponing or evading the decision about what to do with the second half of your life — the half after age 40 or 45.' — Peter F. Drucker

'This successor to 'Halftime,' his book on stock-taking at midlife, gives you the step-by-step instructions for doing what he had earlier simply recommended. If you are trying to decide what comes next for you, this is the book to help you do it.' — William Bridges, Author

'Bob Buford again encourages us to wake up to what really matters in life, and then challenges us to have the fortitude to plan and live accordingly.' — Dennis Bakke, President

'If you are in your 40s or 50s, you may already be thinking of retirement. Bob Buford looks you in the eye and asks 'retire from what, to do what?' In an open and engaging way, 'Game Plan' tells us how and why everyone in the middle years of their life needs to change their view of success. Bob's own story of moving from mere achievement to magnified significance is inspiring, but more important, it is also a good map for those eager to embrace the future. So if you'd like to do what you really want to do for the next 30 years or so, reading 'Game Plan' is a strategic place to start.' — Dr. Stephen A. Hayner, President

''Game Plan' is the next step in the journey toward purpose-driven living. Bob has written another winner!' — Dr. Rick Warren, Senior Pastor

'In 'Halftime' Bob Buford deeply struck a chord with thousands of middle-agers who yearn for something more. Now with 'Game Plan' he shows them how to find it. Inspired by Bob's own remarkable midlife transition, these two books open a whole new world of possibilities for a generation uniquely positioned to give, and by giving to receive.' — William T. Solomon, Chairman

'Though obviously a very committed Christian, Bob Buford's writings are applicable to individuals of any faith. He appropriately challenges all of us to make a difference in 'Halftime' and helps us to develop our individual road map in 'Game Plan.' His guidance should give readers the opportunity to fulfill their dreams in a much more significant way than in the first half of their life.' — Ronald G. Steinhart, Chairman

'This book succeeds hugely, in describing the predictable moments of midlife passage, plotting the longitude and latitude of a man or woman's 40s and 50s. Buford is this era's cartographer to the human soul.' — David G. Bradley, Chairman
