Read full description of the books:
This book is a short read, but in those pages, it spares no detail regarding what a businessman, an intelligent, well-educated, highly thought of CEO, goes through when being told he has 3 months to live.
We all, at one time or another, think about death - most of us will ponder it, fear it, and put it on the back burner for "later" and get on with our lives. However, what happens when an otherwise healthy man in his 50's suddenly realizes the end is near? This is a man with long-term plans - retirement with his adoring wife in Arizona, seeing his daughters marry, meeting his grandchildren. His youngest daughter is only going into 8th grade when he gets the unexpected diagnosis.
After two weeks of complete and utter shock, Eugene O'Kelly pulls himself up by the bootstraps and lives more in the following months than he had in all the years prior. He thinks about the afterlife, what will happen to his family, what he can do to make this easier on them. Eugene is an extremely loving person and his focus immediately turns to others rather than himself. His first indication that something is wrong occurs during a game of golf, which he loves. He realizes he sliced the ball - not because he screwed up his swing, but because that's where his vision told him the hole was. After that, his cheek started to droop. Chalking it up to stress or a mild case of Bell's Palsy, he isn't worried when he goes to the doctor. That changes - and it changes quite quickly.
You can read this book in a couple of hours, but I guarantee its message will stay with you much longer than that.
