Delivering practical and helpful information in a light tone, the authors help to make difficult conversations a little easier. The book's fifty concise chapters are filled with real-life examples, organized under four key areas:
- The biggest mistake—not planning at all
- Failing to plan for the possibility of mental incompetency
- Mistakes made during the estate planning process itself
- Common mistakes made by executors

so yesterday i sat down on the couch with this book, and i feel like i spent personal time with a very intelligent, thoughtful expert. the book is well-organized into short chapters on each "mistake", and written with a light-hearted wit and friendly tone. all my questions were answered, and on every page the author's expertise and experience shows. i couldn't be happier with the help provided, and i highly recommend everyone stop procrastinating and use this book to deal with the critical issues that so many of us ignore ... hit the "BUY" button now!
