Overview

Leave your family peace of mind with this new approach to wills and estates

Whenever Elizabeth Arnold tells people her specialty, they usually share their own family dilemmas. Maybe Dad left behind a misguided or inadequate will. Maybe Aunt Sue nabbed the vase that wasn’t in Grandma’s will and Aunt Pat hasn’t spoken a kind word to her since. Maybe Sis can’t decide who should get the kids in case of a tragedy, so she doesn’t have any will at all. Such tales of woe have nothing to do with legal or tax problems. The real issues behind wills gone wrong—or wills that never get off the ground—are the human ones.

Creating the Good Will tackles the important human dimensions that most books about wills fail to address. Arnold teaches her readers that wills are not just legal documents but also heartfelt emotional tools.
