Five Estate Planning Tips For Holiday Conversations

Early Book Reviews of Trial & Heirs: Famous Fortune Fights!

TrialAndHeirs_front My co-author, Danielle Mayoras, and I have been blown away by the early book reviews we've gotten so far.  Here are a couple highlights:

  • [Trial & Heirs] ignited a lively discussion with family and friends during a holiday gathering.  Everybody who has read or discussed it has pledged to get their financial affairs in order.  You can’t take it with you, so you want to organize your affairs so that they won’t cause a hassle among your loved ones when you go.

  • [The celebrities featured in the book] all flubbed their estate planning, costing intended heirs money and/or grief, according to a readable (really) estate planning how-to book, Trial & Heirs. The new book uses these celebrity cliffhanger cases to dish out real-life advice.

  • If TMZ and Bankrate.com had a literary baby,
    it would be “Trial & Heirs.”

“Trial & Heirs” manages to accomplish a stunning trifecta of near impossibilities for a book about estate planning. Not only does it entertain, it deeply educates and also galvanizes readers into taking action to protect their families and their legacies.

  • It’s so well written and fun that even a person like me, who hates money talk can enjoy it.  And anyone reading it will learn a great deal.
