Chasing Daylight, by Gene O'Kelly, is the memoir of former CEO of accounting and consulting firm KPMG as he chronicles his last 100 days. O'Kelly was at the pinnacle of his career at 53 when he learned that he had terminal brain cancer. O'Kelly is a typical "type A" high-powered executive and he comes to grips with his fight against cancer not trying to beat it, but accepting it and saying goodbye to as many people as he can. The book also includes a chapter written by O'Kelly's wife of 27 years, Corrine.
While O'Kelly lived the successful life of a corporate titan, his choices in life and in death are not perfect, but they are true to his spirit.
