Chasing Daylight: How My Forthcoming Death Transformed My Life

By Gene O'kelly, Eugene O'Kelly


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.

NEWS & OPINION: Chasing Daylight Part 4

Posted February 23, 2006, 9:50 PM with category of Management & Workplace Culture
I titled this part 3 because Jack has already written three posts on Chasing Daylight -- well, two and one review (post one, two and the review). This book is something out of the ordinary for a "business" book. It's not about how to change the bottom line or lower employee turnover. Read more
