I loved the way this book was separated! I learned so much and I feel prepared to deal with a death if god forbids it happens. I had no clue it involved so much.

Sharon Hartung recently contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing her book, Your Digital Undertaker.

As I am in the freelance editing business, I was delighted with the opportunity.

But, let me add that Sharon and I have never met. Although we both worked at IBM, it was my approach to editing with a project management approach mentioned in my LinkedIn profile that resonated with her because what makes Sharon’s book unique is her project management approach to one’s death proje

This book is a decent and comprehensive overview of the subject. I would consider this a good starting book for any Canadian looking to understand the impact of death and what to do to prepare your estate and executors for that eventuality. I had read "The Canadian Guide to Will and Estate Planning" prior to this book, so there was some duplication, but much more content related to digital assets and I picked up a couple of good additional pieces of information.

This book is essential reading for anyone mortal. Yes, you! If you have an email account, a library card, pay bills online, have online subscriptions, receive email newsletters, have apps on your smart phone, have a Goodreads account (!), then you have digital assets that need to be taken care of when you shuffle off this mortal coil.

This book helps you do the responsible and loving thing- get your digital estate in order. And not just your digital estate, your estate in general.

Recommends it for: Canadians of all ages
This is an easy-to-read guide that more Canadians should take the time to read. It brings order to a part of life that few choose to map out in advance. It presents a structured and rational way of thinking about your end of life plans, that personally brought me a lot of comfort and relief to consider in this level of detail. If nothing else, it presents a solid argument for why Canadians of any age should plan out the end of their life with as much effort and consideration as they do with any ...more

Ms. Hartung's book is an eye-opening exploration of what happens when a person dies without a will in Canada. Based on her own personal experiences handling her mother's estate, this is a very readable and straight-forward book that can be used as a workbook for anyone starting their own estate planning journey, or by an Estate Professional wanting to have these conversations with their clients.

With her background as an executive and an engineer, she has written an extensively researched book t
