Chasing Daylight: How My Forthcoming Death Transformed My Life By Eugene O'Kelly

The former CEO and chairman of the accounting juggernaut KPMG, who was diagnosed with brain cancer at 53, writes about his "forthcoming death" as one would expect an accountant to: methodically. He charts his downward spiral, from symptoms to diagnosis to the process of dying, in this poignant and posthumously published book. The narrative recounts the steps Kelly took to simplify his life - how he learned, for instance, "to be in the present moment, how to live there at least for snippets of time."
