The wills and trusts business is loaded with "free" advice...but this book really covers the topic with PROFESSIONAL advice. As with all books in the DUMMIES series, this is a serious reference book with accurate stuff. The "kit" is a cd with templates for wills and trusts, which the reader will find very helpful. I'm a lawyer who doesn't practice in this area, and I found the book down to earth, simply written and helpful.

-Realizing that 50% of the doctors graduate in the bottom half of their class, I needed something before a major operation. Since I never planned on dying, I never bothered to write out a will in the past. Happy I bought the book to guide my wife and me through the process. Saved bucks on a atty or on-line source. In retrospect, since I have little left but bills to pass on after the recession and medical fees - it may have been superfluous but comforting.

This book did exactly what I wanted. It gave me good information on amending my Revocable Trust including how to do it without needing a lawyer. It did not mention the Legal Zoom as a possibility but I came to the conclusion that that was an option, too. In reading other parts of the book on trusts in general, I discovered that my Estate Lawyer made mistakes or ommissions in my trust that have caused me grief that could have been avoided had I been able to read this "Dummies" book first. I would recommend reading this book first even if you plan to use an Estate Attorney instead of doing it yourself.
