Eternity and Me by Allan Kellehear is a work that stimulates one to take stock of one's life and reassess values and ideals. Kellehear is of the view that the opportunity to comprehend life from a new perspective and to weigh the past in a dispassionate manner is afforded as death draws near. The emotional turmoil at such a time can lead to self-discovery, especially of inner strength. Each story narrated by him offers guidance as to how empathy and tolerance can help draw more out of life.
