The farther I read, the more I felt the cover was pretty sensational in what it promised versus what it delivered.

I like the concept. But the book was mostly commentary, scattered with some factual evidence, that wasn't nearly as interesting as I thought it would be. Commentary isn't bad, but it seemed to outweigh the factual evidence sometimes. And for some entries, I couldn't make the leap to why their will was notable.

Not only that: I love a good pun, but the author makes some eye-rollingly

Everyone is curious about the rich and famous. Look at the media coverage of Michael Jackson's death. Poor Farrah Fawcett has barely gotten a mention. Looking at how the rich and famous dispose of their worldly possessions and their instructions about their own funeral is interesting and sometimes very surprising.

Shelves: hollywood
on the one hand the topic is somewhat predatory. on the other hand the info was derived from information that became public by virtue of the disposition of the wills. it feeds a harmless curious glimpse into how a few rich and famous dispense with their worldly possesions after they have no way to use them. makes a good bathroom library book.

The few paragraphs that stated the entries of the Wills were far and few between. This is a book to browse through some afternoon but there's not much substance.
