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.

The book was written for the general public and was envisioned to provide a scientific basis for understanding the effects of time on our brains and how these aging effects change our intelligence and perspective. Practical solutions are offered to offset the inevitable decline seen with advancing age. For Baby Boomers on the verge or in early retirement, this should be required reading. Much Abides is inspirational on many levels. 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.”
