Let me begin by confessing the intent of this foreword right up
front. My hope for Lloyd Reeb’s book, which you now hold,
is that it will convince you of two things—the first is that the
change-of-life season described as Halftime is nearly universal in
the developed world and critical to Halftimers. The second is
that the transition from success to significance as a central
motive force in life’s second half is not at all dependent upon
income and net worth.
