Received the book. I am enjoying it. Can't believe what some people feel and do. Some of the stories are very upsetting. I'm glad I ordered it. Received in a couple of days. Everyone should read this book. I can now rest in peace.

"Where there's an inheritance" is the third book about wills and estates by Kotzer and Fish. However, the subject matter is not entirely about wills and estates, rather, Kotzer and Fish assemble a variety of stories from clients, colleagues and callers. These stories deal with money, life and death. They are stories of families overcoming their differences or being torn apart over inheritance disputes, often over relatively small legacies. They are funny stories, sad stories, frustrating stories and shocking stories. They are stories about second chances and missed opportunities. Indeed, their wealth of experience has exposed them to a wide variety of both tragic and uplifting situations around succession planning.

If you have read a Kotzer and Fish book before, some of the stories and situations may seem familiar. This is because many of these situations are so unique or humourous that it is difficult not to use these again. One such story, which is referred to in "The Family War" tells of a "deaf" uncle who surprises his potential heirs by repeating the negative things they said about him at his 90th birthday party. Another story tells of an aunt who decides to ungraciously cut all of her nieces and nephews out of her will because of the fact that they had already "staked their claim" on her things while she was in the hospital. There are also instances of problems when clients decide to prepare their own wills.

Although it would be easy to deduce that many of the stories do not apply to an individual's situation due to their uniqueness, this is not the case. Much of the advice can be taken to heart if you read between the lines. In one story, two younger heirs make incredibly stupid decisions and squander their inheritances.

If you want an insight into the problems created by poorly written or thought out wills this is your book. Never leave real estate to more than one person is one of the best tips but the anecdotes are packed with bequeaths and consequences. Read this book before you finalize your will.
