Make Your Own Living Trust by Atty. Denis Clifford gives a careful introduction to living trusts, appropriate to most audiences.

I ordered the book for my own purposes and for a better understanding of living trusts as an attorney interested in branching into an estate planning practice. As a beginner in this area, I found the book helpful as an introduction.

OLD AGE IS NOT FOR SISSIES. Art Linkletter was right.

“Many readers, probably the majority, will find the information in this book sufficient to prepare their own living trust and backup will.” –page 226

True, but doubtful on the first read.

Very comprehensive (complete with tear-out and CD computer up-loadable forms), mostly readable, and marginally understandable; this book will break your mind (but, hopefully, not your spirit). Reading ‘Make Your Own Living Trust’, in the words of one-country-so
This is a very helpful book, as well as easy to read and understand. After going through it the other night, I think I may opt to go with just a will at this point. The only property I have that I really need a trust for is the house, and I'm not sure if we will be keeping it much longer. I'll look a bit more into updating my will and may decide to revisit the trust idea again in a couple of years.

With this book, I have all the information I need to create my own living trust. It's not hard or time consuming either. Using the accompanying CD, I've got all of the forms I need without searching online for downloads. Great resource.

This book has lots of very helpful information in it. In helping my dad get things in order, it's been wonderful to have this book. I'm not going to place it as "read" because it's something I refer to often.
Easy to understand, even a little too easy. It isn't quite written "for dummies," but it is pretty close.
