Much Abides: A Survival Guide for Aging Lives

Much Abides: A Survival Guide for Aging Lives offers a fresh look at aging, stressing the factors that enhance or undermine successful aging. It encourages seniors to fill the last chapter of their story with passion and purpose.

Written for the general public, Much Abides provides a scientific basis for understanding the effects of time on our brains and how aging affects our intelligence and perspective. Practical strategies can offset the inevitable decline seen with advancing age. Inspirational on many levels, for Baby Boomers on the verge or in early retirement, this should be required reading.

The title is from the poem “Ulysses” by Alfred Lord Tennyson where he reminds us that “It is not too late to seek a newer world.”

Late Fragment: Notes on the Later Stages of Life

Just released in November 2023!

Late Fragment serves as an informal sequel to Dr. Edwards' first book, Much Abides: A Survival Guide for Aging Lives, in which he explores how we can find meaning and purpose in the years after retirement.

Late Fragment explores the later years. Perhaps health is faltering. The days of travel have passed. We grieve the loss of a loved one. Take heart, Dr. Edwards writes, there is still peace to be found.

This book is a study of the last stages of human life and the thoughts, fears, hopes and actions of those living in it. It is intended to guide us through the challenges of today's longer lives to ensure relevance, purpose and joy.
