THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Chasing Daylight is the honest, touching, and ultimately inspirational memoir of former KPMG CEO Eugene O'Kelley, completed in the three-and-a-half months between his diagnosis with brain cancer and his death in September 2005. Its haunting yet extraordinarily hopeful voice reminds us to embrace the fragile, fleeting moments of our lives-the brief time we have with our family, our friends, and even ourselves. This paperback edition features a new foreword by his wife, Corinne O'Kelley and a readers' group guide and questions.

Chasing daylight

A very uplifting look at a very depressing subject. As someone who is spontaneous it is hard to relate to Genes orderly method of dealing with finality. Living in the present is indeed the greatest gift that he was trying to teach us. One foot in the past (regret , if only) and one foot in the future ( worry, or fear) means we are destroying the present moment. I hope to attempt to apply some of his order into my business and personal life
