I wanted to read this, honestly, for the sordid stories of families torn apart by ~greed. Like I had this idea that my siblings and myself were definitely above such tragedies.

If you are creating or updating your trust, read this! Really, really, really easy to read with frequent anecdotes. Gives you what thoughts to ponder as to how and why to plan what happens to what you leave when you pass to the Great Unknown. Easy to skip around to the chapter you need.

Clear thinking and straight talk on inheritance and such. Worth checking out from the library for a quick review. The author's emphasis on 'equalization' as a means of not destroying family harmony is worth considering.

Recommends it for: Parents and their adult children
An informative and revealing view into the personal emotion, and the legalities that will visit each and every one of our families, when we die and leave our love, possessions and money to family and friends.

A must read for every person with adult children.

i enjoyed this book even though i am not married have no kids, i just like the knowledge. i think i may ask my parents a few questions, and i do hope my brother ken has a plan since i know he does not like a son-in-law. it would be nice to know that he would not get any money.
