Superb resource! One of the best I have seen in years of researching ways to protect my estate for my heirs. I recommend EVERYONE WHO OWNS A HOME OR HAS A BANK ACCOUNT TO BUY THIS BOOK! I spent a lot of money and time setting up trusts for my 3 rental properties and nothing was mentioned about a Transfer on Death deed or transfer on death for bank accounts. This book, although it seems long, is actually super-quick to read the specific information that pertains to YOUR state and situation. Best money you'll EVER spend!
I am single, retired, and have had to to find estate paperwork while grieving for both a parent and a sister. In both cases, although neither had any resources worth spitting at, the estates were a huge hassle to settle. If both of them had used the simple and inexpensive methods in this book, it would have been so much easier. Do a favor to your loved ones, do the paperwork NOW--don't make them do it later.

Unless you're a lawyer you didn't learn this stuff in school. And you need this knowledge. The cost of this book is negligible compared to the cost of lawyers so I consider it a no-brainer investment. Don't get me wrong - I'd still consult a lawyer regarding estate planning issues and ways to avoid probate. But reading this will get you prepared to have those conversations and ask good questions and you won't have to pay your lawyer to walk you through the basics of probate and estate planning. You'll walk in with an understanding of the basics and terminology and your time (and cost) with your lawyer will be less. Take it from me, unless you've worked with this stuff before you'll be bewildered by it. This book has been very valuable to me and I wish I had read it years ago.

I found the book to be well-organized and easy to read. I was concerned the state-specific information might take up a large part of the book but it doesn't and that information was helpful, too.

Most of the solutions for avoiding probate I was already aware of. If I had it to do over I would not have bought this book as I knew most of the info. However, if you have not done any web research and you are new to the topic you may find it sufficient for your needs and will certainly benefit as there are many simple and legal means to avoid probate on certain types of assets depending on the laws in your home state (or state of the deceased).
