When incurable cancer visited him at age 53, accounting firm CEO Eugene O'Kelly began wrapping up his work and letting go of the limitless future he had planned as he sought to live each moment feeling more connected to what is central to life. In this touching memoir of the last three months he lived, he describes how he slowed down his Type A pacing. He retooled his intensity and perfectionism to methodically "unwind" his work commitments and various relationships. In memorable performances, narrators Kate Reading (who handles the final chapter, written by the author's wife) and Michael Kramer capture every ounce of the author's remarkable determination. Their nuanced interpretations skillfully balance the poignancy and immediacy of his challenge with the quieter, more timeless perspectives O'Kelly learned to embrace.
