This book will help you redefine your vision, your goals, and the heart that drives them. Second Wind for the Man in the Mirror will help you find a fresh sense of authenticity. Once again, you'll feel your life regaining speed as the waters are gathered by the converging riverbanks just ahead.

For any man approaching or finding himself in midlife, this book by Patrick Morley is a must-read. In Part 1 of this book, Morley highlights various issues that men will face as they approach midlife, issues like unrealized dreams, boredom, physical changes to one's body, a shrinking nest at home, and career issues. In Part 2, he looks at various ways that men can find their second wind. These include reconnecting with God, overcoming bitterness, managing expectations, coping with tragedies, and dealing with pain. In Part 3 of his book, Morley helps men to reinvent themselves for the second half. Such reinvention calls for redefining success, being our true self, identifying new sources of meaning, cultivating a hunger for who God is, writing a life mission statement, reinventing one's marriage and also possible career changes. As one who finds himself in midlife now facing various issues, I have certainly found this book to be tremendously useful. It's highly recommended!
