Much Abides: A Survival Guide for Aging Lives

Cheer for your grandchild at her basketball game. Learn to paint. Reconcile a past hurt with a friend.

This book encourages seniors to embrace life and fill the last chapter of their lives with passion and purpose. The book, written by Dr. Charles H. Edwards II of Charlotte, stresses factors that either enhance successful aging or undermine it. It provides a scientific basis for understanding the effects of time on our brains and how aging changes intelligence and perspective.

Edwards advises seniors to seek joy, social interaction and to exercise their bodies. He goes over the 10 common mistakes of aging (No. 1 is underestimating how much time we have left). The book’s title is from the poem “Ulysses” by Lord Tennyson where he reminds us that “Tho’ much is taken, much abides.”

Softcover and e-book, $25, 130 pages. The e-book is available on; the softcover edition is available at the website below.
