Editorial Reviews

Long Beach Press Telegram
The most streamlined, yet thorough information available on how to write a valid will quickly and safely — without a lawyer.
Business Week
An excellent book for lay people.
Library Journal
Clifford has a reliable track record when it comes to estate planning guides. His new title joins Plan Your Estate (Nolo, 1994. 3d ed.), Make Your Own Living Trust (Nolo, 1993), and Nolo's Simple Will Book (Nolo, 1989. 2d ed.). While it is good to be wary of any publication with "quick" and "legal" in the same title, Clifford and Nolo have proved again that they can offer a simple but not oversimplified explanation of a legal concept. Written for people under age 50 with less than $600,000 in assets, the book instructs readers in how to designate who gets their property, name someone to care for minor children, manage property left to them, and name an executor. The text is enhanced with icons that call attention to possible problems, provide cross references, or note the need for a lawyer. An assortment of forms for wills, affidavits, and gifts is found in the appendix. Nolo's Simple Will Book, a fixture in many collections, offers expanded coverage of issues like debt forgiveness, varied guardianship arrangements, and disinheritance. Most libraries will want to add The Quick and Legal Will Book to satisfy those patrons truly interested in the no-frills will.-Joan Pedzich, Harris, Beach & Wilcox, Rochester, N.Y.
